College of Education and Human Development to honor former Dean Bob Cobb
On April 7, the College of Education and Human Development will hold a celebration to honor former Dean Bob Cobb’s 38 years with the University of Maine. Cobb began working for the university in 1969, as an assistant professor of education with a focus on physical education. He served as dean from 1977 until his retirement in 2007. When he retired he was not only the longest serving dean at UMaine, he was the longest serving dean of a college of education anywhere in the United States. The celebration will mark the formal launch of the Robert “Bob” A. Cobb Scholarship Fund, which will provide financial aid to undergraduate students in need. A full news release is online.
