It's Time to Party
December 2016 marked the last month of Prof. Henry Tye's six years of service as lAS Director. To express our appreciation and gratitude to Henry, we organized an appreciation party in his honor in conjunction with the winter party at lAS last December.
The party was attended by over 130 guests from the University. The guests toasted Henry and listened attentively when Prof. Tony F Chan, our President, Prof. Wei Shyy, Executive Vice President and Provost, and Prof. Che Ting Chan, lAS Executive Director, praised Henry as an amiable scientist and a caring and supportive leader who has strengthened the foundation for the continued development of lAS as a top intellectual center.
Although Henry has stepped down from his role as Director, he remains with us as our lAS Professor and keeps working on his research to unlock the secrets of the universe.
