It is with great sadness that IIT announces the loss of Marvin Levine (EE ’53), who passed away on June 21. He was a respected adjunct professor within IIT’s Industrial Technology and Management (INTM) Program and IIT Stuart School of Business with more than 20 years of service.
Levine’s association with IIT spanned over 60 years. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from IIT in 1953 and worked for IIT Armour Research Foundation (the predecessor to IIT Research Institute) from 1953 to 1958. After an accomplished 30-year career in private industry, Levine retired in 1987 as president and chief executive officer of Howe Richardson International and dedicated himself to teaching and volunteering.
Involved with IIT’s INTM program since 1994, he developed and taught courses in Industrial Management and Planning, Risk Management, and Strategic International Business, and was a tireless advocate for the program and its students.
From 1990 to 2006, he taught graduate courses for IIT Stuart School of Business, including International Marketing, Organizational Behavior, Leadership and Change Management, Human Resource Management, Competitive Strategy, and International Business. He thoroughly enjoyed teaching as well as the diversity of students and issues encountered in the classroom.
Funeral services will be held on Sunday, June 24 at 11 am at Chicago Jewish Funerals, 8851 Skokie Boulevard, Skokie, Ill. Visit the CJF website for obituary and donation information, and to offer condolences and memories to the Levine family.
