Old Westbury, N.Y. (April 27, 2012)
─ NYIT President Edward Guiliano
, Ph.D., saluted the university’s faculty members yesterday, calling their academic achievements, research, and scholarship an impressive part of NYIT’s reputation and excellence.
The 11th Faculty Scholars Reception at NYIT de Seversky Mansion included presentations by three faculty members who have received internal grants for their work.
“You model NYIT’s standard of global education, interdisciplinary excellence, and technological framework,” Guiliano told administrators and faculty members representing each of NYIT’s seven schools and colleges. “These are all elements of our brand as a university.”
More than 150 faculty members – about 50 more than last year ─ were recognized as authors, presenters, designers or exhibitors, grant recipients, or awardees. Their journal articles, books, and research posters were displayed in two rooms at the mansion.
“I want to laud the seamless integration of much of this work with the teaching mission in the classroom,” Guiliano said. “So many of you are open – and relish – the opportunity to conduct research with your students and that is very rewarding.”
