Grand Marshal: Bruce and Kathy Pitman
The reasons new students flock to the University of Idaho each year are vast and ever-changing. The same can be said for visitors to Bruce Pitman’s office – where the door has been open for more than 40 years.
Bruce has led the development of several programs targeting violence prevention on campus, including the mandatory risk management program for freshmen, Think About It
, and the I Got Your Back
program to promote bystander intervention.
A four-time Alternative Service Break adviser, Bruce played an integral role in the growth of the service program, which sends more than 200 students each year across the world, including past trips to Peru, Romania and Cambodia.
Bruce met his wife Kathy in his hometown of Indiana, while finishing his undergraduate degree at Purdue University. Working with the international fraternity Phi Gamma Delta, Bruce and Kathy visited 118 campuses before settling down in Moscow, where Bruce began working as Greek adviser.
In 1975, Bruce earned his master’s in education. In 1981, he accepted the position of dean of students. He received his doctorate in education in 1990, and in 2005, he added vice provost of student affairs to his title.
Kathy received her Master of Arts in Teaching in 1976 and a master's in education in 1999.
