Dean Robert M. Dammon
We thank Dean Dammon for his contributions to the Tepper School of Business.
In the nine years that Robert M. Dammon has led the Tepper School, he has brought the same approach to his role as an administrator that he brought to the classroom: thoughtful, encouraging, and analytical. These qualities have endeared him to faculty, alumni, and students alike, and will leave a lasting legacy in shaping the school's future.
