Bob Wise was a theatre enthusiast and UNI alum who wanted to provide a unique opportunity for students.
Through his generosity in creating the Robert O. Wise Broadway Tour Endowment, two or three Theatre majors who are currently juniors are selected to go to New York City. They have an opportunity to see several Broadway shows and to experience other cultural (and culinary) offerings of the city.
The gift specifies that selected students must have a minimum 3.0 theatre major GPA. Two Theatre faculty and three senior majors, preferably members of APO-TAP and preferably past recipients of the Wise Broadway Tour Award, will select the two or three students and one alternate by reviewing submitted applications.
The 2016-17 Students and Faculty are:
