Effort Honors Professor Hindelang’s Memory
The Faculty Colloquium in LeBow College’s new academic center will be named for Professor and Vice Dean Thomas Hindelang, who died suddenly on Dec. 8.
“This is a fitting tribute for a man who dedicated his life to teaching others, and to helping teach teachers to become better at their profession,” said George P. Tsetsekos, Ph.D., the R. John Chapel Jr. Dean of the College. “Tom’s energy will live on in a space dedicated exclusively to the professional development of our faculty.”
The tiered Faculty Colloquium will be on the seventh floor and will seat approximately 40 faculty members. It will be used exclusively by faculty for presentations, committee and departmental meetings and other professional development activities. In addition, the colloquium will serve as the place where faculty will present and debate their new research findings, and it will allow visiting scholars to present their work to LeBow students and faculty. Ph.D. candidates will also be able to use the Colloquium Room to defend their theses.
The room will feature state-of-the-art presentation technology, including a large dual-screen projection system, a custom-built lectern, and video conferencing capabilities, allowing faculty to interact with colleagues worldwide.
The Colloquium Room will feature a stunning view of the Drexel campus.
