Chancellor Wilcox, Provost Larive, Dean Uhrich and other leadership joined in celebrating the appointment of the inaugural George K. Helmkamp Endowed Founder’s Chair in Chemistry, Nobel Laureate Richard Schrock ’67. Schrock was formally welcomed back to UCR at an event held Friday, Oct 26th, at the UCR Alumni & Visitors Center.
“Professor Schrock’s reunion with UCR is without question a marker of the Universities upward trajectory.” Said Chancellor Wilcox in opening remarks. “Professor Schrock is a perfect real-life example of the rising power of this University, and the pioneering spirit, and actual pioneers that fuel its mounting momentum.”
This year, UCR also welcomes Barry Barrish, a Nobel Laureate joining the faculty in the Department of Physics.
Below is a photo slide show of highlights from the evening.
