At right, Dean of Engineering and Computer Science Nabil Esmail talks with Dean of Arts and Science David Graham and chair of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics Yogendra P. Chaubey in the new fourth-floor engineering lounge of the EV building.

Esmail says the collaborative projects between his faculty and Fine Arts has been so fruitful that he decided to pursue the idea with Arts and Science, starting with the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

Dean Graham and the mathematicians were invited to have coffee on May 23 with some of their engineering colleagues in the beautiful new lounge. About 25 attended, and for some, it was the first time they had met.
