Who's Who In the Secchi Dip-In?
Since 1994, the Dip-In has been guided by three hard working-professors from Kent State University (below). They provide the intellectual and spiritual leadership needed to guide each year's Dip-In to its successful conclusion.

The Dip-In really could not be conducted without the dedicated assistance of our student Dip-In Data Engineers. They mail all the brochures and questionnaires, enter the data as the cards are returned, checking the database entries for accuracy, and e-mail or telephone volunteers to ask about missing data. It does make you wonder what the three professors do, doesn't it?

Our Web page could not have been constructed and maintained
without the help of KSU students,
A special thanks to all of the volunteer coordinators and volunteers that have participated over the years. Without your help, there would be no Dip-In.
Many Thanks From The Dippers at Kent State
