Mari Jensen, Senior Science Writer with the College of Science, has written a new UAatWork article on the late, great Dick Kassander, In Memoriam: Richard Kassander, UA's First VP for Research. We originally announced Kassander's passing in a HAS news article here.
Kassander influenced countless generations of students throughout his very long career and was instrumental in growing both the atmospheric sciences and hydrology departments, as well as many others, across the UA campus.
We owe our status as a Research I University to Kassander and others like him and will always honor him as one of our founding fathers. Thank you, Mari, for this touching memorial.
