RMU Students Inducted into Alpha Chi
The Pennsylvania Epsilon Chapter of the National Society of Alpha Chi, an academic society, inducted 86 students from Robert Morris University on Sunday, Nov. 16, 2003 in the Charles L. Sewall Center. Faculty sponsors of Pennsylvania Epsilon, include Yildirim (Bill) Omurtag, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Engineering, Mathematics, and Science, Charles Zimmerman, Ph.D., professor of mathematics, Maria Kalevitch, Ph.D., assistant professor of science, and Kenneth LaSota, Ph.D., Director and associate professor of Science. The key note speaker for the event was Desmond Bartlett, OBE (Order of the British Empire), an internationally known industrialist and engineer, who spoke on the importance of understanding the culture of a country in which a U.S. company wishes to do business.
