Professor Richard Zinman Retirement Celebration
Saturday, October 11, 2014
MSU Kellogg Center, Case Hall, and University Club
Professor Zinman is retiring after this academic year and we will be celebrating his career at James Madison with a day of thought-provoking panel discussions, social events, and perhaps even a roast of Professor Zinman. If you would like to be involved and/or attend, please contact Kim Allan. More information will be forthcoming.
Professor Richard Zinman has taught at James Madison College since 1969 and studies and teaches political philosophy and American political thought. In 1989, he began serving as executive director of the Symposium on Science, Reason, and Modern Democracy, a research center in the Department of Political Science, and has been involved with the Symposium since that time. He has edited and contributed to seven volumes of essays published by the Symposium. In 2005, the Symposium received a $500,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the first such grant awarded to Michigan State University. Zinman has received the State of Michigan Teaching Excellence Award (1991), the MSU Distinguished Faculty Award (1995), and the Honors College Award for Distinguished Contributions to Honors Students (2005).
