Roger Boesche, Arthur G. Coons Distinguished Professor of the History of Ideas emeritus, passed away peacefully in his sleep on May 23, just days after he retired from forty years of teaching at Oxy’s 135th Commencement ceremony.

In light of this loss, we will be celebrating Roger’s innumerable contributions to the College at Alumni Reunion Weekend.

First, Roger will be posthumously recognized with the Honorary Alumni Seal Award for Faculty Emeritus during our Alumni Seal Awards Reception on Friday evening. Then, at Alumni Assembly: A Tribute to Roger Boesche on Saturday afternoon, join President Jonathan Veitch and members of the Oxy community who knew Roger best as they share stories and discuss Roger’s lasting impact on the College and students to whom he devoted so much of his life.

We hope you’ll join us in remembering and celebrating Professor Boesche.

If you are planning to join us for the Alumni Assembly in honor of Professor Boesche, please register here.

If you would like to attend the Alumni Seal Award reception, or participate in Reunion events in addition to the Alumni Assembly, please register for Alumni Weekend. We have waived the late registration fee until Monday, June 12.
