The Core Curriculum

Society of Senior Scholars

Event Date: 

Professor de Bary establishes The Heyman Center for the Humanities Society of Senior Scholars. The society allows professors who elect to do so to teach in the Core after  retiring from full-time service. Scholars receive stipends to teach one course a semester. This begins a long tradition of dynamic and invaluable contribution to Core teaching and faculty life by some of Columbia's most distinguished professors.
