| Since coming to Juniata in 1974, Professor Reilly has gone beyond the books of social work, practicing what he teaches both on and off campus. With a B.A. from Susquehanna University and an M.S.W. from Marywood
College School of Social Work, he has taught courses in social work practice, social problems and social welfare, deviant behavior, correctional processes, rural sociology, social institutions, and the American family.
On campus he has been a faculty representative to the Board of Trustees and various other committees and a faculty advisor to several student groups.
Off campus he has served as an active community leader and board member with the Huntingdon Area School District, Huntingdon House: A Program for Victims of Domestic Violence, Huntingdon County Children's Services, Head Start, the Huntingdon County Human Services Council, and the Tri-County Community Action Agency. He has been a consultant, administrator, organizer, and instructor for numerous social service concerns and is a member of a variety of professional associations.
Bob has been recognized for his work both on and off campus, receiving the Beachley Distinguished Professor Award for Outstanding Teaching in 1991, the Huntingdon House Service Award in 1987, and the Head Start Outstanding Volunteer Service Award in 1986.
He is married to Linda, his best friend, who teaches English, Humanities, Social Studies, and French at the local high school. Katey, their oldest daughter, will be a senior at Juniata and Maggie, the youngest, will be a first year student at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon.
In his spare time, Bob enjoys family adventures, gardening, tennis, and playing the guitar.
