Do you remember Professor Harry Cohen?

In honor of Professor Cohen’s 100th birthday, in 2016, we are raising $1M to endow the Science Summer Bridge program in his name. Roosevelt’s innovative Science Summer Bridge program allows new freshman science majors to bond with science faculty and fellow students and to form a science community. 

So please help us honor this great and inspiring professor by giving what you can to get us to our $1 million goal by the time Professor Cohen celebrates his 100th birthday. 

You can donate online by clicking here. We know that many of you have funny, touching, and inspiring stories about Professor Cohen. Please share them with us by sending them to Jan Parkin at
