A lifelong learner, Roy earned a BS from Brescia University, an MBA from Butler University and a PhD-equivalent from IBM’s Systems Research Institute. In 2018, Roy and his wife, Vicki, furthered their commitment to education with the establishment of the Roy and Victoria Duffy Roberts Center for the Sciences at Brescia University.
