Robert V. Levine Memorial Fund

Professor Robert Levine taught social psychology at Fresno State for 45 years, until his passing in June 2019. He was a published author, mentor to hundreds of students and colleagues, loving husband and father, and a world traveler. For him, traveling was his way of making sense of the world, to which he always brought a curiosity to learn about and from all kinds of people and places, and an attention to possibilities for repairing brokenness in the world around us.

Before his passing, Bob had just returned from a trip to Nepal, where he was hosted by his colleague and friend, Dr. Gyanesh Lama. Dr. Lama’s village (and much of Nepal) had been destroyed by the earthquakes a few years prior. During his visit to the village and upon his return, Bob was excited to begin working on his napkin-scrawled list of potential projects and funding needs for supporting the villagers as they rebuild from the earthquakes. This includes a project to bring clean drinking water to the village and support for the purchase of a 4-wheel drive van needed to transport people and supplies from Kathmandu to the village.

We have created the Robert V. Levine Memorial Fund to help see his vision to reality, and to provide an outlet for all of his friends and family seeking to make a contribution in his memory.
