Our mission in creating the Dave Frohnmayer Leadership Fund is rooted in Dave's personal definition of leadership—one that inspired the transformation of the campus over which he presided: leadership through esprit. A shared vision, a team effort, a code of conduct...and the search for common ground. Most importantly, Dave believed in making a difference in people's lives in a way that endures. It's a lesson so essential—so right—that it needs to be championed on this campus as a tribute to Dave's legacy.
Generous donors, including Lorry I. Lokey, Nancy and Dave Petrone, and Mary and Tim Boyle, have given the University of Oregon School of Law a starting point to launch a program dedicated to developing leadership in Dave's name, beginning with the Dave Frohnmayer Chair in Leadership and Law. And with your help, we can continue his legacy of leadership and service.
The University of Oregon is a better place because of Dave’s leadership, and with your ongoing support, the leadership program within the University of Oregon School of Law will give students the opportunity to make the world a better place.
