Professor Emeritus Robert L. Wolff Honored

By Karen Updyke, School of Engineering

Robert L. Wolff, professor emeritus with the University of Dayton (UD) School of Engineering, was inducted into the University’s Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) Wall of Fame during the Fighting Flyers Detachment ceremony on April 20. 

According to LTC Jeffrey Rosenberg, chair and professor of the Department of Military Science at UD, “Most significant was Bob’s advocacy for ROTC on Dayton’s campus as the head of the ROTC Committee. Bob worked tirelessly on behalf of the department and was the main reason that ROTC was able to recognize 100 years of continuous service on this campus.”

“Bob graduated from UD’s Army ROTC program and served in the military and the civilian sectors. He achieved incredible success as an educator in engineering at UD earning the title Professor Emeritus,” continued LTC Rosenberg.

Located in O’Reilly Hall, “The Wall of Fame,” LTC Rosenberg explained, “recognizes graduates of the Army ROTC program who have served in either the military or in the civilian sector with distinction. It also recognizes civilians who have contributed or supported the ROTC program and mission in a manner that is exemplary.”

Prof. Wolff said that “It was important to me and the University that the Army ROTC remain on campus. As a UD faculty member and previous ROTC cadet, I was happy to lend support."

For Wolff, the Wall of Fame recognition is one of several that have been bestowed on him during his 56-year tenure at UD. In 2014, Wolff was recognized with the Robert L. Wolff Endowed Scholarship. During his 2015 retirement ceremony, Scott Schneider, chair and professor of the Department of Engineering Management, Systems, and Technology wrote that Bob is a treasured member of our department, and the scholarship was established to carry forward his legacy of student support.

Congratulations, Professor Wolff on your induction into the University of Dayton’s Army ROTC Wall of Fame.
