Virtual Golden Medallion Society Reunion

Thursday, May 6, 2021
11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. (Central)
Via Zoom

A link to join the Zoom meeting will be sent automatically from "CSE Alumni Relations" following registration.

The College of Science and Engineering Golden Medallion Society honors alumni who have reached the 50th anniversary of their graduation from the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering (formerly the Institute of Technology)! Each May, as new members are inducted into the society, existing members are invited back to join the celebration.

While we are unable to gather on campus for this year’s Golden Medallion Society Reunion, we look forward to virtually reuniting with you! First-time reunion attendees will be invited to participate in a special induction ceremony with members of the classes of 1970 and 1971.

Don’t forget to wear maroon and gold (and your medallion too, if you’d like)!

This event is complimentary, but requires pre-registration. 

First-time Reunion attendees: If you registered by April 15, a commemorative medallion is en route to the mailing address provided in your registration. Please have your medallion handy on May 6 for the virtual induction ceremony. If you registered after April 15, your medallion may arrive after the event.

If you have questions, please e-mail us at

What to Expect:

  • Golden Medallion Society induction for the Classes of 1970 and 1971 and other attendees who have not previously participated in the event.

Keynote Presentation: “Critical Partnerships Drive Innovation: The Road to Responsive Medicine”
Presented by Brenda Ogle, Professor and Department Head, Department of Biomedical Engineering

Professor Ogle will introduce the concept of responsive medicine as the development and clinical implementation of therapies that respond to the response of the patient to therapy. She will describe how responsive medicine will require innovation in electromechanical devices, machine learning, artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, and cell-based therapies. Her own work is focused on developing living cardiac muscle to repair the damaged heart and she will share the most recent advances of her lab. Finally, she will share a new framework to establish the University of Minnesota as a leader in responsive medicine.
