Robert J. Morse – UC Alumnus, College of Arts & Sciences, Economics 1970
Personal Note: I have always been a proud UC alum and I remember my times there with pride. UC helped to shape me. As someone who interacts with higher education almost constantly, I know how important college is to those who attend them, those who work at them, and to the communities where they are located. Higher education is very important to our society and it’s one of our country’s greatest assets. UC was and is important to me.
