As many of you have already heard, Howard Tuckman, former RBS dean and dear friend to so many of us, tragically passed away last night. Howard's tenure as dean, from 1999 through 2006, was marked by significant increases in the size and quality of our faculty, the expansion of our programs throughout the state and Asia, and enhanced relations with and support from the business community. Remembered by so many for his warmth and ready smile, his death comes as a terrible shock to all of us.
We will be coordinating with Howard's family to set up a scholarship fund at RBS in his name and will send details when they are available. Your condolences can be sent to Carol Babb and to his sons Andrew Tuckman and Alec Tuckman at 708 Boulevard, Westfield NJ 07090.
