Honoring Mark Rosenker’s Legacy

The Department of Communication joins with the University of Maryland community in mourning the loss of Maj. Gen. Mark Rosenker—an alum and graduate of our department. Maj. Gen. Rosenker has given back to his alma mater in meaningful ways since he graduated in 1969. We were most pleased to rename a department center after Mark and Heather Rosenker to honor their careers in public service. The Mark and Heather Rosenker Center for Political Communication & Civic Leadership commemorates the Rosenker legacy that exemplifies our departmental mission of Communication for the Public Good. We will long remember and miss Mark’s sage advice, insatiable energy, and contagious smile.

See Mark’s obituary and giving opportunities. Mark’s life is also commemorated in the Washington Post.
