Jane and Jerome Schultz Lectureship in Engineering


About the Jane and Jerome Schultz Lectureship in Engineering

Jane and Jerome Schultz shared a lifelong passion for scientific research and its applications in health and medicine. At UCR, Jane as Director of Research Development and Jerry as the Founding Chair of the Department of Bioengineering, advanced UCR’s research agenda. The Schultz family established this Lectureship in Engineering in Jane’s memory and as a lasting legacy of their commitment to the education of future researchers and engineers.

In accordance with the mission of the Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE), the Jane and Jerome Schultz Lectureship in Engineering supports campus appearances by nationally and internationally known distinguished speakers. These annual lectures are open to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members free of charge. They focus on research and timely issues in the fields engineering and bioengineering to enhance the knowledge, understanding and experience of faculty and students by sparking discussions and intellectual exchange of ideas.
