The Robert G. Dietrich Global Experience Fund
From launching global fundraising initiatives and educational pipelines for our community to securing countless resources in support of the university’s faculty and students, Bob embodied the best of Northeastern.
His journeys transported him from a small town in New Jersey to global experiences. Through his travels, he was fortunate to visit Hong Kong, Singapore, Jakarta, Riyadh, Oman, Dubai, Geneva, London, and Istanbul, to name a few.
Bob’s exposure to unique people, places, and customs led to a lifelong passion to create meaningful and impactful global opportunities for our students and faculty. In a recent expression of gratitude, Bob credited Northeastern with establishing this opportunity to expand his cultural horizons “both around the world and around the corner.”
As we think about Bob’s legacy, we can determine no better way to celebrate that appreciation than through the creation of this fund in support of students seeking access to education through global experience.
