Computing school honors late professor with EngagePitt campaign

Roger FlynnThe School of Computing and Information recently launched an EngagePitt campaign to honor Professor Roger R. Flynn, who died in July.

The six-week campaign kicked off Aug. 15 and runs through Sept. 26.

According to the school, Flynn was dedicated to enriching students’ lives. In 1974, Roger and his wife, Ida Moretti Flynn, moved to Pittsburgh to pursue his Ph.D. studies and teach at the University. They eventually would co-found Pitt's undergraduate Information Science program. Ida Flynn died in 2004.

Money from the campaign will go toward funding scholarships, travel grants, and conference fees for students.
