Robert “Bob” Schaller has been appointed site director of the Florida Institute of Technology’s Patuxent Graduate Center.

Schaller, a full-time faculty member who has taught graduate coursework for more than 12 years, brings his economic development expertise and track record of student success to his new role, according to a news release announcing the promotion.
