Donoho Colloquium

About the Colloquium

The Donoho Colloquium was established in May 2010 with a generous gift from David and Miriam Donoho, Dartmouth Class of 2006 Parents. The Fund is intended to honor their son, Daniel Donoho, Dartmouth Class of 2006 and to support a colloquium series sponsored by the Neukom Institute.

The fund seeks to contribute to the Neukom Institute's primary goal of enabling Dartmouth students and faculty to integrate computational technology into their curriculum, scholarship, and, most critically, into their thinking.
