Rochester's Engineering School Named for Edmund A. Hajim

The University announced that its engineering school will, effective July 1, be officially named the Edmund A. Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

The naming recognizes alumnus Edmund Hajim's many decades of service and contributions to the University, including his $30 million gift commitment last fall to the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Hajim earned his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering at Rochester in 1958, has had a highly successful career as a senior executive for several Wall Street firms, has served for the past year as the Chairman of the University's Board of Trustees, and has been a member of the Board since 1988.
