In celebration of Reunion/Homecoming Weekend, President Shirley Ann Jackson, Ph.D. invites you to attend: The State of the Institute address - "Looking Back to Look Forward" - on Saturday, October 11 from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. in the EMPAC Theater. Although Rensselaer has seen a great deal of change over its 190-year history, its founding mission - to apply science and technology to "the common purposes of life" - remains more relevant than ever. Join President Jackson as she discusses her vision of "The New Polytechnic" and the future of Rensselaer.
Also on Saturday afternoon, please join President Jackson as she helps celebrate 100 years of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Rensselaer, at 3:30 p.m. in the CBIS Auditorium. Hear about the history and accomplishments of our faculty and alumni as well as the exciting new ways we will be changing the world. Then join faculty and students to learn about current research during the cocktail reception and poster session. Laboratory tours will be available.
