Alumni Service Award Recipient
School of Dentistry, October 29, 2008
Arnold Hill, received three degrees from the University of Minnesota: a bachelor of science degree (1961), a doctor of Dental Surgery degree (1963), and a masters of science degree in Orthodontics (1965). He has worked tirelessly on behalf of the School of Dentistry and the University of Minnesota. He served as chair of the Simulation Clinic campaign and recruited an outstanding group of dentists from the region to serve as the Campaign Cabinet. This ambitious group raised over $10 million in less than three years for the renovation of the first and second year dental students' preclinical laboratories, which is now known as the Simulation Clinic. The Simulation Clinic was so successful that it was chosen as one of the major projects to be televised for the Driven to Discover campaign. He has served on many other committees including the Community Advisory Board, which was responsible for selecting the new Dean. He has also worked extensively with the Dean and the Development Office to promote the School of Dentistry to alumni, donors, corporate sponsors and friends. One person wrote, "He has set the gold standard by which all volunteers at the school will be measured in the future."
