Annual Faculty Reception

President Shirley Ann Jackson and her husband, Professor Morris Washington, hosted the annual “Welcome Back Reception” at the President’s Residence on Aug. 27. More than 150 new faculty, returning faculty, deans, and cabinet members attended the reception. President Jackson also introduced Rensselaer’s newest faculty members. “We are extremely proud of the quality of the faculty we have attracted to and developed at Rensselaer. Though all of you work at the absolute cutting edge of your fields, you are part of a very long tradition at Rensselaer of iconoclasm, innovation, and generosity in the sharing of knowledge…This is a very exciting time to be at Rensselaer, as we are now far enough along on our journey of transformation to set ourselves the goal of becoming transformative—in our research, in our pedagogy, and in the lives of our students. Thank you all for the many outstanding contributions you have made to those students, to Rensselaer—and, indeed, to the world. I anticipate much more great work to come.”
