Dr. Robert N. Martin

Dr. Robert N. Martin Retires
After 30 and one-half years at KU, Dr. Robert N. Martin retired at the end of the Spring 2014 semester.  He does so after establishing an enviable track record of scholarly work, conference presentations, and successful alumni.  A big send off for Bob was held in the lobby area of the Graduate Center on May 2.  Many current students, faculty and administrators, and alumni came to pay tribute to Bob.  We wish Bob Martin all the best in his well-deserved retirement.
