Hall of Fame Member Biographies

Robert L. Sandmeyer

Robert L. Sandmeyer, Professor Emeritus and Dean Emeritus since 1994 of the College of Business Administration at Oklahoma State University, is the exception to a long-established academic rule: “You can't go home again!” A Ph.D. graduate from OSU, he was hired by his alma mater in 1962 as a visiting assistant professor. For three decades he was one of OSU’s top administrators, serving terms as Interim Vice President for University Relations and Public Affairs, and Interim Director, University Extension. The scope of his activities at OSU is almost without precedent, and he spent much of his career energy promoting economic development in Oklahoma. He was inducted into the Oklahoma Higher Education Hall of Fame in 2004.
