story by: Todd McLeish
More than 100 colleagues and former students were in attendance last month as the University of Rhode Island’s College of the Environment and Life Sciences inducted Professor Paul Cohen into its hall of fame. The Narragansett resident was recognized for his 47-year career studying E. coli and for his teaching and mentorship of numerous graduate students who have gone on to have highly successful careers.
“Paul has had tremendous success in his decades of teaching, research and service at URI,” said John Kirby, dean of the URI College of the Environment and Life Sciences. “That is best exemplified by the success of his students and their expressions of the key role that Paul played in helping them get to where they are today. The theme that comes through from each of his former students is that he cared for them and was truly interested in their success, interested enough to step up and help them find opportunities and then to succeed at those opportunities.”[Read more]
