This medal will be presented to an exemplary undergraduate senior majoring in the sciences who shows commitment to diversity and engagement with community service and justice and will first be awarded to a graduating student in the class of 2020.
Dr. Sarkar-Dey retired in 2019 after 35 years as a member of Loyola’s faculty, serving as department chair for Mathematics & Statistics for 9 years. Her journey from Bangladesh to the U.S., challenges and experiences in academia are truly inspiring.
