UCR DICKSON-AWARDS for 2015-2016
The recipients of the Dickson award for this year were: M.M.Rao, Mathematics; Roger Ransom, History; and Richard Sutch, Economics. Each awardee received a cash award to support research during the academic year 2015 -2016. In early February, these three award winners along with our first award winner Mir S.Mulla (2008), Entomology, gave lectures on their work at the UCR Emeriti/ae Association and Retiree Association Center in the Orbach Science Library. This was the second year of this lecture series; the robust attendance and liveliness of discussion indicates that it will continue to be an important addition to the UCR Emeriti faculty experience.
