Robert Nayer, director of operating and capital budgets, will be inducted into the 14th class of the Joseph Linsey Brandeis Athletic Hall of Fame during ceremonies at 6:30 p.m. on March 31 in the Gosman Sports and Convocation Center.

Nayer, a native of Brooklyn, N.Y., and member of the class of 1970, was a stalwart on the basketball teams of the late 1960s. A 1,000-point scorer, Nayer finished just seven rebounds shy of the 1,000-1,000 club. His 993 caroms still rank second on the Judges’ career list. A two-time MVP of in-season tournaments, Nayer was selected as an alternate for the 1969 US Maccabiah team and was a Jewish All-American as a senior, when he pulled down 319 caroms, also second in school history. Nayer, who received a Master of Public Administration from SUNY at Albany, has at Lewis & Clark since 1999.

The Brandeis Athletic Hall of Fame currently includes five teams, 12 former coaches and administrators and 92 alumni.
