    My condolences to the friends and family of Dr. Dahlke. I feel extremely blessed to have studied with Dr. Dahlke for two courses this year. In those courses he challenged me as a student and encouraged me to always pay close attention to instructions and then give of my best response. He reinforced that he was shaping us to one day be competent professionals in the field of IOP. His passion for the courses he taught was contagious, as he shared many stories from his professional and academic life which served as an inspiration to dream of having a significant impact on the organizations with which we work. Thank you to his family for sharing such a wonderful person with us. Thank you to TUW for giving us the opportunity to applaud such a wonderful man, leader and teacher.

    May you rest in peace and know that you have touched the hearts of many students. After many months of searching for a Masters program, I came upon your biography and current role of IOP Program Director at TUW. You are the reason I chose this field and program. I will never forget what you have taught me. You will be missed, but your passion for teaching us students will not be forgotten as we apply the enormous amount of knowledge you have equipped us with in the world to come.

    Dr. Dahlke was my favorite professor in the entire IOP program. You just knew he gave the program 110%. I enjoyed his feedback and his high exceptions. He even wrote my letter of recommendation into my PsyD program.

    Thoughts and prayers to him and his family. I wish we could have met. Another time 🙂

    Sorry to hear the sad news. My deepest condolences. Dr. Arnie Dahlke was taken much too soon… He was a wonderful soul, may he rest in peace.

  24. Dr. Dahlke’s work was inspiring to me! I am so saddened by this loss. I hope my own application of the many tools, tips, techniques, and processes I learned from him will truly honor his memory and contribution to the field!

    Sincere sympathy and condolences.

  26. My heart goes out to Dr. Dahlke’s family and loved ones. I’m at a loss for words. I actually felt the need to email Dr. Dahlke a few weeks ago to ask about my resume set up, because that’s who he was. He’d help his students with anything, if he could. I had no idea he was ill, which it saddened me that I did not communicate with him earlier. Although lost in our presence, he will forever be in our future. He made me a stronger writer by following my blog and providing feedback. Dr. Dahlke helped me grow my passion for the IOP field through fostering our academic friendship. I will miss him, dearly and how he made us all feel connected. I ambgrateful to have my doctoral recommendation letter that he wrote in August. It will forever be in my momentos and my next IOP article will be dedicated to team-building and those geese of his. Until we meet again, Mr. Dahlke, Zkmain.

    My sincere condolences go out to your family. I had the pleasure of being in 2 of his classes this year. I have to admit, I thought he was tough at first and then realized that it all makes sense and I am better for listening to him. He was a great instructor and I am blessed to have had him.

    I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to you in the time of sorrow. I hope all people who know him well (and love him)will overcome this sorrow very soon.

    Dr. Arnie was an outstanding instructor. He was my instructor of the very first course at TUW. I felt his passion and excitement not only in the field of I/O psychology but also in teaching people to become the best version of selves.
    I did not have a chance to know him personally. Still, through course interaction and his articles, I knew he was exceptional in the sense of professionalism and person. Moreover, he did not forget humor and showed us the importance of positive attitudes.
    I was genuinely looking forward to having him as my last course program instructor next year and seeing him at the commencement in 2022. I wanted to say “Thank you” from the bottom of my heart. Unfortunately, we lost him. However, we knew we would go for our professional/personal dreams with the knowledge, skills, and tools Dr. Arnie gave us.

    Thank you, Dr. Arnie!
    May his soul rest in peace.
