Many students credit Gus for encouraging them to complete their projects and dissertations, saying, “Dr. Gregroutti demanded the most from me and I realized that he made me a better researcher. I would not have finished my dissertation if not for the contribution of Dr. Gregorutti.” His colleagues note, “Gus not only publishes often and deeply, but he also helps many of the rest of us publish.” Gustavo has made it a career goal to encourage faculty research productivity. He spends a considerable amount of his own personal time to develop and nurture international collaboration.
