Dr. Robin Lacy has served the University of Central for twenty plus years, beginning in 1999.  Hired by Carl Breazeale, Dr. Lacy has been instrumental in the continuing success of the Occupational Safety program.  Dr. Lacy has served as a faculty member, program coordinator, assistant department chair, and department chair.  Progressing from instructor to a tenured professor, Dr. Lacy counts the relationships with external stakeholders (companies, organizations, professional societies) as among his proudest achievements.  It is these relationships that lead to continuing opportunities for the students, interns and graduates of the Occupational Safety program. In addition, Dr. Lacy pays homage to those faculty and administrators that came before him, thanking them for their support, and paving the way for his success in leading both the safety program and the AESS department:  Carl Breazeale, Gayle Kearns, Candy Sebert, Virginia Osgood, Steve Allen, Gayle Snider, Robert Delano, Doug Reed, Frank Nelson, Karen Barnes, Shari Villani, Dean James Machell, Dean Judith Coe, Jan Tuepker, Pamela Fly, William Radke, John Barthell, Roger Webb, Don Betz and others too numerous to name.
