Humbio Past

40th Reunion

On Friday, October 21, 2011 we threw a birthday gala including a program of talks by alumni and faculty. View pictures of the celebration here! You can read stories from alumni, and share your memories with us;  visit our page for Founders, or the "Wall of Fame". There are also over a dozen video-taped interviews with founders, early faculty and staff as they recall the origin of the program and other special memories. We are looking back over the milestones of the past 40 years and also looking ahead to the future  with the aim of endowing the program.
