Cohen Center Grand Opening (By Invitation Only)

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM

James Madison University will hold a grand opening for the Cohen Center for the Study of Technological Humanism.  President Jonathan Alger will give remarks followed by a keynote address to be given by Professor Jerome McGann from the University of Virginia.  The event begins at 11 am in the Montpelier Room, East Campus Dining Hall. Due to space limitations, this event is by invitation only. 

The Cohen Center was created by a gift from JMU's first Provost's Distinguished Professor, Ralph Cohen, and his late wife, Libby Okun Cohen.  The center will be housed in Wilson 107.  It will host internationally acclaimed speakers, support graduate student and graduate faculty research projects, offer experimental courses combining multiple disciplines, and support inquiries into transforming graduate education.  

Contact Dr. Larry Burton, Director of the Cohen Center, at if you have any questions.
