Daniel Gorenstein Memorial Award

November 28, 2017

I am pleased to initiate the nomination process for the 25th Daniel Gorenstein Memorial Award. The award was established by the family, friends, and colleagues of Daniel Gorenstein to commemorate his outstanding mathematical research, his skillful and enthusiastic exposition of his field, and his wise and devoted service to Rutgers University. The award is given for outstanding scholarly achievement to a Rutgers faculty member who has also performed exceptional service to the University community. Exceptional service includes service to the department, university committee work, academic support programs, student governance, and curriculum development, among other possible areas. A list of past recipients of the award and their lecture topics is attached.

All Rutgers University faculty members (excluding previous winners) are eligible.  The recipient of the Daniel Gorenstein Award receives a commemorative certificate and an honorarium of $1,000 and delivers a lecture to the University community and the general public at the award ceremony in the Spring semester.

The nomination process will be similar to that used for other end-of-year faculty awards. Nominations are reviewed and approved by the individual's department head, dean, and chancellor, and submitted by the chancellor to my office. A committee of distinguished faculty members will select the recipient of the 2017-2018 Daniel Gorenstein Memorial Award.

A nomination form that provides a brief description of the award and instructions for completing and submitting the nomination packet is enclosed. You may nominate any number of candidates. Please initiate the nomination process in your units and forward your nominations no later than January 29, 2018, to Dr. Angela Mullis or call 848-932-8068 who will be coordinating the process in my office.
