The Mina Rees Conversation Series is a lively showcase of ideas, research and active scholarship, from across the CUNY system and beyond. The series is titled in recognition of Mina Spiegel Rees – a renowned mathematician who served both as CUNY’s first Dean of Graduate Studies (1961–67) and was named as the Graduate Center’s first President in 1971.
