Kun Chen

Dr. Kun Chen 

Our beloved colleague, professor, and dearest friend, Dr. Kun Chen passed away on October 13, 2015, after two years of fighting a late-stage cancer.  Dr. Chen was a rising scholar and a bright star in the department.  Though her time with us was short, she made a long lasting impact on the department and especially on her students.  She was an excellent teacher, an engaged mentor, a great colleague, and most of all, a very intelligent, sincere, and caring person.

We are raising funds to establish the Dr. Kun Chen Endowed Memorial Scholarship to help generations of future students who will continue what Kun started.  Our goal is to raise a minimum of $50,000 in funds to establish this endowed scholarship. We hope her name will be forever associated with the department, the university, and future students she loved so much. To make a contribution to the Dr. Kun Chen Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund, click here.
