Dr. Gregory Rausch and Michael Rudinica were inducted onto the Wall of Fame at Loyola Marymount University’s Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering during the annual Wall of Fame Tribute on Friday, April 16.
The tribute honors the accomplishments of Seaver College alumni whose personal ethics reflect the university’s Jesuit tradition. The 2010 additions to the wall were Gregory Rausch, M.D., F.A.C.P. ’66, and Michael Rudinica ’75, M.S.C.E. ’79.
Rausch, an oncologist, together with his wife, Susan Schanz Rausch, created a fund that helps pay the costs of treatment for cancer patients. He has been an ordained Catholic deacon for 15 years and serves on the Seaver College advisory board. Rausch’s brother, Tom Rausch, S.J., teaches in LMU'S Theological Studies Department.
Rudinica serves as executive vice president and is a member of the board of directors for RBF Consulting, where he oversees the water and wastewater engineering, planning and design services, and directs the firm’s international projects. He and his wife, Elizabeth Rudinica ’79, created the Rudinica Family Endowed Prize to reward a Seaver College faculty member who embodies the exceptional student-faculty mentoring relationship, like the ones he experienced as an undergraduate.
“Greg and Michael are excellent examples of alumni who have successfully turned their education toward the greater good, and they continue to use their talents and intellect to make the world a better place. It is therefore an honor and a privilege to add their names to the Seaver Wall of Fame,” said Richard G. Plumb, dean of Seaver College.
