Faculty & Staff

Bob Barbato

Bob Barbato, faculty member in the Saunders College of Business, has had the good fortune to teach at RIT's campuses in Kosovo, Croatia, and Dubai. He says that those experiences have been among the most positive and enjoyable in his 35 year career at RIT.

"The educational benefits of more student exchanges between our main campus and our international campuses are incalculable, and I want to support any and all efforts to create more exchange opportunities for our students," says Bob.

He knows that there are significant financial barriers for many students, including transportation and housing costs. That's why he chooses to support the Faculty Endowed Scholarship Fund in the Saunders College each year.

"It gives me enormous satisfaction to know that the small amount of money I donate each year will make it possible for more students to realize the advantages of international exchanges."
