Robert E. Dobbs Distinguished Service Award

This award recognizes dedicated alumni who, through their service, make an outstanding contribution to their university are usually over-modest, always unpaid, and unthinking of reward. Nonetheless, recognition is important, for an action that begins by aiding the advancement of a university and ends in the improvements of the social structure in which we live. The UC Alumni Association issues the Robert E. Dobbs Distinguished Service Award to provide that recognition for those who have faithfully rendered outstanding service to the University of Cincinnati.

Make a Gift in Honor of Laurence Jones

To help celebrate this honor, please consider making a gift to The Laurence and Rebecka Jones Business Fellows Annual Scholarship Fund which provides an annual scholarship to a current student within the Carl H. Lindner College of Business-Business Fellows program.
