The P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science paid homage to its benefactor last week with a ceremony that highlighted the diverse accomplishments and creative energies of its students and faculty.
The 2015 Celebration of Rossin Professors and Fellows honored the late Peter C. Rossin '48, an entrepreneur in the titanium alloy industry who, with his wife, Ada, established a $25 million endowment for the college in 1998.
The event was devoted to the Rossin Fellowship Program, one part of the Rossins' legacy, which recognizes assistant professors, Ph.D. candidates and undergraduate students for their scholarship and academic excellence and for their contributions to Lehigh and the community.
Rossin Professorships honor young faculty members who show significant career potential and a proven ability to reach out to other disciplines. Rossin Doctoral Fellows receive special preparation for careers in academia and research. Rossin Junior Fellows are undergraduate students who serve as mentors and tutors to other students, conduct outreach activities and give campus tours to incoming students.
