Trent University Mourns the Death of Dr. Bing Zhou

September 14, 2017

The Trent University community was saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Bing Zhou, a faculty member with the Mathematics Department. Professor Zhou joined the Department of Mathematics at Trent in 1990 and became a tenured professor in 1994. He became a full professor in 2000 and was the chair of Mathematics from 2002 through to 2007. Popular with colleagues and students alike, Prof. Zhou often said how lucky he was to be able to do what he enjoyed most in life, combining his love for math with his love for teaching.

Trent University extends heartfelt sympathies to Prof. Zhou’s family and friends, and to all who knew him.

A memorial service for Prof. Zhou will be held on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. in the Gathering Space at Trent University’s First Peoples House of Learning. All are welcome to attend.

His family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations are sent to the Bing Zhou Memorial Fund at Trent University. To make a donation, please visit under “designation” for the Bing Zhou Memorial Fund. Donations can also be made by phone through Julie Gauthier at 1-877-698-7368.
