Malancha Ghosh Memorial Fund Established

To honor their daughter Malancha, Subir and Susnata Ghosh have established a memorial fund in the School of Social Ecology. Malancha, who received her Master’s in Urban and Regional Planning in 2009, passed away last December due to complications from H1N1 at the young age of 27 years. Professor David Feldman said “Every one of us in the Department of Planning, Policy, and Design -- faculty, students, and staff -- was profoundly touched by Malancha, and enormously saddened by her passing. We are privileged to have known her, and proud to have worked with her in our MURP program.” The Ghoshs’ generous gift to establish the Malancha Ghosh Memorial Fund will create a lasting legacy for their daughter, while benefiting the students and faculty of the Department of Planning Policy and Design.
