The college notes with sadness the death of Charles “Jack” Dudley, Professor Emeritus of Sociology.

Dudley joined Virginia Tech in 1974; in 1990 he assumed leadership of the University Honors program, a position he held for almost two decades. The program has since become the Virginia Tech Honors College.

Dudley was recognized for his outstanding teaching and garnered numerous teaching awards.

As director of the University Honors program, he mentored a remarkable number of students toward national and international scholarship awards.
