Robert P. Biller Award

The Robert P. Biller service award was created in 2014 by the retired faculty Association and the staff retirement association boards. Bob Biller served the University as a faculty member and as a dean of numerous schools. After his retirement he played a key role on the retired faculty Association board as well as a leader in the Emeriti Center. His collegiality and focus on bringing both the faculty and staff together post-retirement generated many activities that are enjoyed jointly today.

The special award is conferred upon any retired faculty or staff member at USC who has served in a volunteer position and promotes collegiality among all disciplines and between both faculty and staff. The award is for extra ordinary volunteer service in retirement.
