Borde, Hayes Win Trustees Awards
On December 2, Arvind Borde and Christopher L. Hayes were among four Long Island University professors who received the University's Trustees Awards for Scholarly Achievement (TASA).
Borde, an Associate Professor of Mathematics, co-authored a paper one physicist termed "conclusive" that points to a moment 10-20 billion years ago when time began. Hayes, a Professor of Psychology, was lauded for his work in establishing and encouraging women to plan their own retirement.
Two C.W Post faculty also were honored: Katherine Hill-Miller, an English professor who provided insight into author Mary Shelley; and Andrew M. Rockett, a mathematics professor who shed new light on continued fractions.
This year's TASA Awards were for scholarly activity. In odd-numbered years they recognize lifetime achievement. Each winner receives a TASA medal and a $1,200 check.
The awards ceremony was prefaced by a Professor Roger Rosenblatt lecture titled "Silence of the Liberals."
