The award includes a small stipend and the honor of presenting the Gorenstein Memorial Award Lecture. The award was established in 1993 and is given for outstanding scholarly achievement to a Rutgers faculty member who has also performed exceptional service to the University community. Without a doubt, Jolie's accomplishments in both categories are exceptional.
Jolie joins Noemie Koller, the first woman to receive the Award, as the second Gorenstein Award winner from Physics and Astronomy. Only four other departments have two award recipients (English, History, Math, and Sociology).
Congratulations Jolie on this well-deserved recognition.
