Professor Robert Owen served as PitE's 3rd director (2005-2010), and is a staunch supporter of experiential learning. Professor Owen had put his beliefs into practice by fostering the practical experience requirement of the program and teaching at Camp Davis. When he retired as PitE's director, the Robert M. Owen Scholarship Fund was established to recognize his contributions to the university and support PitE students taking a science class at Camp Davis.
PitE continues to receive gifts to this endowment from faculty colleagues, program alumni and friends. We invite you to honor Professor Owen and support our students by making a gift to the Robert M. Owen Scholarship Fund. This fund constitutes a gift for endowment, and distributions from the fund shall be made in accordance with the university's then existing endowment distribution policy.
