The Brian M. O'Connell Fund

Working with his family and friends, Central Connecticut State University has established a fund in honor of Brian M. O'Connell, a professor in CCSU's computer science and philosophy departments who died in May 2008.

The Brian M. O'Connell Fund will support an annual lecture series to be given by the "Brian M. O'Connell Fellow," a recognized scholar-practitioner in computer science, engineering, technology, philosophy, law, music, and other fields of study. The fund would also support the "Brian M. O'Connell Scholarship," which would be awarded to an undergraduate student who best exemplifies the intellectual passion, curiosity, and accomplishment of O'Connell.
