Honorary Doctorates to be given to Bob Zimmer and Hélène Esnault

February 9, 2023

This June the University will give honorary doctorates to two mathematicians.  One is our colleague, former president Bob Zimmer, who has led and strengthened the university for many years -- and, close to home, greatly influenced the intellectual direction of our own department.

The other is Helene Esnault, a noted algebraic geometer who has close connections to the mathematics of our department.  We look forward to her visit, when she will give a colloquium a few days before receiving this award.
