Summer 2006


President Robert L. Carothers, who completes 15 years of service as the 10th president of the University of Rhode Island, shares some thoughts with us as he marks this milestone.

A Peaceful Legacy
URI alumni who have served in the Peace Corps agree that it’s “the hardest job you’ll ever love.”

Road Trip
For one group of URI geology students, a series of field trips led to lifelong friendships and career successes.

Jockeying for Market Position
When Jockey International, Inc., hired Dorothy Wahl ’81 to revitalize sales of its women’s intimate apparel, she knew she’d signed on for a challenge.

Compelling Lessons
Students with disabilities struggle to excel in their classes, serve as mentors to other students, and join clubs, sororities and fraternities, and athletic teams.
