President Fainstein portrait to be unveiled
The College community is cordially invited to join President Lee Higdon Wednesday, April 25, for a reception honoring President Emeritus Norman Fainstein and the unveiling of Fainstein’s official presidential portrait. The reception begins at 4 p.m., with the unveiling scheduled for approximately 4:15 p.m. in the Ernst Common Room, Blaustein Humanities Center.

Fainstein served as president of Connecticut College from 2001 to 2006. During his presidency he regularly taught a course in urban sociology and history. In the fall of 2007 he became chair of the Sociology department and taught courses in urban sociology and sociological theory, as well as a freshman seminar on suburbia. Fainstein retired from teaching in 2010.

Immediately following the ceremony, there will be a special lecture by Fainstein’s colleague John R.Logan, professor of sociology at Brown University.
