Faculty Retirement Tributes (2021)

Forty faculty members retired from the FAS in 2020-2021, and six of our active FAS colleagues passed away during the academic year. As is tradition in the FAS, at the final Yale College Faculty Meeting of the academic year, Dean Tamar Gendler read tributes to these faculty, recognizing their long-time service to the university. While this is typically an occasion to gather in person and celebrate our accomplished FAS colleagues, this year’s meeting took place remotely due to COVID-19 restrictions. Once we are able to gather again, we look forward to celebrating our 2020-2021 retirees in person.

A formatted pdf version of the tributes, akin to those produced in previous years, will be available in the coming months.
