As you may have heard, our beloved Dr. Nina Roberts, longtime professor, mentor, scholar, and advocate in the Department of Recreation, Parks & Tourism (RPT) passed away after battling cancer. Nina was a passionate and inspiring leader, a longtime park professional and an advocate, a renowned researcher, and a sought-after expert nationally recognized for her work and commitment to social and environmental justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion with a desire to break down barriers relating to park access and recreation opportunities on public lands.
Endowed Scholarship Established!
In honor of Nina's legacy and memory, a scholarship fund has been permanently endowed for students in her discipline, RPT, and related majors who can demonstrate meaningful participation and/or leadership in programs/services focused on educating and advocating for equitable access to parks and other natural spaces. Applications are due by March 1. Thanks to 182 donors! We have exceeded our goal to endow the fund. We are so grateful that our community comes together to honor Dr. Roberts and preserve her legacy at SF State forever.
Thank You For Your Help.
