“Bob Clark was a career academician who retired in 2001 as dean of the College of Science after more than three decades at Rochester Institute of Technology. The focus of his career was on the undergraduate experience through providing patient guidance, concise mentoring, and attention to detail; leading interesting, cutting-edge research projects; and providing faculty and staff with excellent facilities with the appropriate equipment. He always provided a clear vision of success, whether for student or faculty teams. His mentoring inspired undergraduates to build successful careers in industry and academia. His quiet and caring presence will be sorely missed.” —David Youngs, friend and colleague
