Mandel Scholion Center

Morton Mandel (1921–2019)

16 October, 2019

Mandel Scholion Research Center mourns the passing of Mr. Morton Mandel. A devout believer in the humanities and their ability to make the world a better place, Mort was the University’s most generous partner in founding the Mandel Scholion Center in 2002 and the Mandel School in 2012. Over the years he remained a most involved and supportive partner and friend, and he will be sorely missed.
