Founders Day Celebration
Friday, May 17, 2024
Since its founding, the Institute for Advanced Study has been an incubator and accelerator for groundbreaking ideas and scholarship. Founders Day recognizes Louis Bamberger and Caroline Bamberger Fuld, the sibling philanthropists who founded and endowed IAS on May 20, 1930, providing for its lasting and essential independence. Each May, we celebrate their vision and that of our donors, Faculty, Board, Members, and Staff, who together ensure that the work of the Institute is as vital today as it ever has been.
Join us as we celebrate the Institute's founding on Friday, May 17. Programming will include Historical Studies/Social Science and Mathematics Library exhibits, lunch with IAS trivia, Big Ideas Conversation moderated by IAS Director David Nirenberg featuring current Members, and a community dinner party with live music.
