On Nov. 15, NYIT held a luncheon and awards ceremony at the NYIT de Seversky Mansion to recognize employees who have achieved important milestones in their years of service at the university. A total of 170 employees from Manhattan, Old Westbury, and Central Islip were honored. Nearly 60 were recognized for five years of service; others were recognized for successive five-year increments up to and including one employee celebrating 45 years of service.
Prior to presenting an award to each employee, President Guiliano told the group, "I hope you are as proud of NYIT as I am for not only retaining so many valued contributors over decades, but also for attracting new members to the NYIT family as we continue to grow. Congratulations to all."
