Dr. Robert H. Shaffer Celebration of Life
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Celebration of Life for Dr. Robert Shaffer. The weekend was filled with tributes and memories of a mentor, scholar, father, and friend. We successfully raised the money to dedicate a tree and bench in Dr. Shaffer’s name on the IUB campus. The location of the bench overlooks Dunn Meadow where numerous student festivals and protests were staged while Dr. Shaffer served as Dean of Students. The tree and bench are directly across from each other and they are just down the hill from where his office was in Maxwell Hall. In the nearby area are trees dedicated to numerous students who were enrolled at IU when Dr. Shaffer served as Dean of Students. More information about Dr. Shaffer and the Robert H. Shaffer Memorial Fund can be found online here. We will be holding a Celebration of Life in partnership with NASPA at the 100th NASPA Annual Conference on Monday, March 5, 2018 from 4-6 p.m. More information will be shared in early 2018.
