Taking time and making time: the lessons of Robert Biller

I have always known Robert Biller, who passed away Sunday, as a retired Dean. He’d stop by the school, and we’d chat about this and that. He always had time; I didn’t, not always. I’d have to run to class or some other obligation. Nonetheless, Bob was always kindly, always supportive, and always responded to any question I had.

He was the Dean of the School of Public Administration from 1976 To 1982, and then served the university in different roles, including the Vice President for External Affairs, Vice President for Undergraduate Affairs, and Executive Vice Provost.

He will be missed.
