The University’s ANIMAL LABS were found to have no violations in an inspection Nov. 28 and 29 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In the last two years, the USDA cited the University for 21 infractions — which included inadequate medical care and depriving animals of water — prompting animal-rights activists to hold protests on campus.
Ceymi Doenyas ’12 and Cristina Martinez ’12 each will receive a $30,000 Princeton REACHOUT 56-81-06 FELLOWSHIP to support a yearlong public-service project after graduating. Doenyas, a native of Turkey, will work at that country’s only school for autistic children; she plans to develop iPad applications to help students communicate and socialize. Martinez will work with a Philadelphia adoption agency on mentoring former foster-care youths who have turned 18.
The fellowship program, a joint venture of the classes of 1956, 1981, and 2006, supports projects “that the sponsoring organization could not afford to do otherwise,” said James Freund ’56.
IN MEMORIAM BRADLEY W. DICKINSON, professor of electrical engineering and former associate dean of the engineering school, died Jan. 22 in Trenton of a heart attack. He was 63. Dickinson joined the faculty in 1974 as an assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science and was promoted to professor in 1985. An expert in video and image processing, signal processing, and neural networks, for many years he taught “System Design and Analysis,” a course considered to be a rite of passage for electrical engineering majors. As associate dean for academic affairs, he worked to increase the University’s support of engineering students from underrepresented backgrounds.
