About the Engemanns

Groundbreaking CeremonyThanks to a $15 million gift from longtime USC supporters Roger and Michele Dedeaux Engemann, USC students have access to a new state of the art facility to receive their healthcare. Michele is a trustee and alumna of the university, graduating in 1968 from the School of Theatre, and she and Roger are USC parents.

Michele is a past president of the USC Alumni Association and is the founding chair of the School of Theatre’s Board of Councilors and remains on its board. An accomplished actress, she has performed with the Nine O’Clock Players Theatre for Children in Los Angeles for over four decades and chairs the Pasadena Playhouse Board of Directors.

Roger Engemann formed Engemann Asset Management, previously known as Roger Engemann and Associates in 1969. The company specialized in long-term growth equity investment management. When Roger retired as its president and CEO in 2005, the company had approximately $5.6 billion under management. Roger currently serves on the board of trustees of Scripps College and the Business Advisory Council of the Lundquist School of Business at the University of Oregon, his alma mater.

Michele’s other USC activities include service as president of the Trojan League of Los Angeles and as chair of the USC Alumnae Coordinating Council, where she remains a lifetime board member and advisor. She is a life member of Town & Gown, Skull and Dagger, Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, USC Associates-Presidential, the University Hospital Guild, the Trojan Guild of Los Angeles and the Friends of the USC Libraries Board. She received the USC’s Alumni Service Award in 2001. The Engemanns live in Pasadena and have four children.
