HISTORY OF THE T. BENNy RUSHING MATHEMATICS CENTER>>
History
The construction of the T. Benny Rushing Mathematics Student Center (commonly called the Math Center) took place in conjunction with a renovation of the LeRoy E. Cowles Building. Construction, made possible through a generous donation from the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, was started in April 2000 and completed in December 2001. The Math Center is a math haven for undergraduate students and their studies. Students receive free tutoring for select math department courses, have access to a computer lab, and study in one of our group study rooms, or independently at one of the individual study desks.
The center was named after T. Benny Rushing, who was a professor of mathematics at the U for nearly 30 years. In his tenure, he served twice as chair of the Department of Mathematics and led the College of Science as Dean from 19931997. A significant part of his effort in these roles was to make the Math Center's existence possible.
MATH CENTER UPDATE:
