The WVU Eberly College of Arts and Sciences will hold a memorial service in honor of Professor Emeritus Carl Rotter of the Department of Physics. Rotter died Jan. 29.

The memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 8 from 1-3 p.m. in the Betty Boyd Lounge of E. Moore Hall.

Rotter began his career as a high school teacher of physics and mathematics, before pursuing his career as a researcher and educator of university students. His later years were devoted to the furthering of teaching methods for high school physics teachers, and he was involved in the development of several programs to provide better educational opportunities for students. One such program was C3P, which is working to provide a conceptual curriculum to high school students by integrating the best possible educational materials into a three level program. He was serving as associate director of the C3P Program at the time of his death.
