Founders Day: A History of Service and Innovation

Friday, February 15, 2013 ( 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm )

Location: Babbio Atrium

Each year since 2008, the Stevens community has set aside February 15 for Founder’s Day – a celebration of the university’s founding by “America’s first family of inventors” on that date in 1870 and a time to honor Stevens’ legacy of innovation, research and entrepreneurship. This year, as Stevens marks its 143rd anniversary, the sixth annual Founder’s Day event will also honor a different but equally important tradition – the longtime commitment of Stevens students, faculty, staff and administrators to community service and volunteerism.

Please join us in the Babbio Atrium on Friday, February 15, 2013 from 2-4 p.m. for the 2013 Founder’s Day celebration. Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer will be on hand to issue a proclamation in appreciation of Stevens, its students and their support of the City of Hoboken and its residents during and after Superstorm Sandy. The event will also feature remarks from: Stevens Provost George Korfiatis; Sam Reckford, 3rd great-grandson of Edwin A. Stevens; Professor Peter Tolias, director of the Stevens Bio-Innovation Program; and Stevens alumnus Brian Donohue ’11, a technology entrepreneur. The event will conclude with a brief reception.
