INSEAD the business school for the world


On 19th July 2014, it will be a year since Professor Dominique Héau passed away. The many spontaneous tributes from his colleagues, friends and students demonstrate how much he was loved and respected. A number of his colleagues have asked for further details on how their donations will help to perpetuate Dominique’s memory. 

Aligned with Dominique’s unique commitment to INSEAD and our teaching excellence, all donations will help to secure the following two naming opportunities:

The Dominique Héau Award for Pedagogical Innovation and Mentoring.  This honorary award will be conferred on an annual basis to faculty members who have made a significant impact in pedagogical innovation and mentoring. Selected by a special faculty committee, the laureates will help to strengthen and inspire the tradition of mentoring and teaching excellence, exemplified by Dominique.  The awards will equally serve to complement the work carried out by the Initiative for Learning Innovation and Teaching Excellence (iLITE) dedicated to enhance the areas that are central to the school’s excellence.

The Dominique Héau Meeting Room.  Dominique’s office was situated for many years in the East Wing of the Fontainebleau campus. This is the building where Dominique held countless meetings, exchanges and debates with his colleagues from Strategy and other departments.  Your gifts will help us to name the meeting room currently known as EW2 in this building, as the Dominique Héau Meeting Room.  Dominique’s photo and a plaque will be installed, keeping his memory alive as faculty, students and staff continue to gather there.
