Farewell to a Friend
The Department of Alumni and Development bid our good friend goodbye on Aug. 3, when Bob Remington departed TSU after an exceptionally successful career as a fundraiser. Remington made his final adieus at the Alumni and Friends Golf Outing. As Vice President for University Advancement, Remington drove the University’s Vision for the Future capital campaign, launched in 2001 to fund a master plan supporting the University Center and Center for Online Technology, new student apartments and student villas, the renovation of the C.W. Sponsel Administration Center, and a $2 million campus-wide technology upgrade, all available to students this fall. Remington joined TSU as Vice President for University Advancement in January, 2003, leaving Ottawa University in Kansas, where he served as Vice President for Institutional Advancement. He began raising money for institutions of higher learning in 1990, after 20 years in parish ministry. So successful were Remington’s TSU efforts, his development team earned the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Circle of Excellence bronze award for fundraising capital campaigns in 2006. TSU presented Remington with the Tri-State University Pillar of Success award on commencement weekend in May in recognition of his impact on university improvement.
