Daniel Gorenstein Memorial Award

Daniel GorensteinThe Daniel Gorenstein Memorial Award was established in 1993 by the family, friends, and colleagues of Daniel Gorenstein to commemorate Professor Gorenstein’s innovative mathematical research, his skillful and enthusiastic exposition of his field, and his wise and devoted service to Rutgers University. The award was first presented in 1994 and is given each year to a Rutgers University faculty member noted for both outstanding scholarly achievement and exceptional service to the university.
