Erie, Pa. -- Thanks to a recent gift, students enrolled in Gannon University’s Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree
program will have greater access to internships that might be life-changing, and perhaps even world-changing.
Edward H. Roeber, who made the gift, is aware of the transformative nature of working in the not for profit sector. A native
of Emporium, Pa., Roeber served as a healthcare executive and consultant specializing in finance and management of
nonprofit hospitals and healthcare systems in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Pittsburgh. He earned a Bachelor of
Science degree in accounting from Gannon in 1967 and is a past Fellow of the Healthcare Financial Management
Roeber’s gift will help eligible students cover expenses, such as tuition, living and travel, for semester or summer internship
opportunities at nonprofits. The goal of the program is to provide students with valuable experience and leadership skills
that will lead to an increase in the quality of nonprofit organizational management.
Speaking about the gift, Roeber said, “I believe that students who have an interest in developing a career in nonprofit
organizations need first-hand experience in working with community or regional-based businesses. This is a small way to
encourage our young people to select this area as their career begins to unfold.”
