You may have heard the sad news that the Psychology Department has lost a wonderful professor, colleague, and friend. Dr. Vince Brown passed away suddenly in August. We are planning a memorial event on campus and have tentatively scheduled it for Friday, September 23, 2011 at 3pm. We will send final details closer to the event. It is open to all – students, friends, family, faculty and staff.
You can read and share memories of Dr. Brown at http://hofstraremembers.blogspot.com/2011/08/dr-vincent-brown-associate-professor-of.html .
Dr. Brown’s family has chosen to set up a scholarship fund, which will be awarded to future undergraduate psychology students on the basis of academic accomplishment. Contributions to the Vincent R. Brown Memorial Fund can be made via the Hofstra website http://www.hofstra.edu/giving . Under Gift Designation, click the box for “in memory of” and type in Dr. Vincent R. Brown Memorial Fund, and the contribution will be directed to the fund.
If Dr. Brown was your faculty advisor, please set up an appointment with me so that I can assign another advisor to you.
