Global Associate Directors of Alumni and Employer Relations Train in New York

NYIT Associate Directors of Alumni and Employer Relations join Dean of Career Services and Director of Alumni Relations at the de Seversky Mansion in Old Westbury

Old Westbury, N.Y (August 2, 2011) —Visitors from three NYIT global campuses immersed themselves in “Big Apple” culture during a busy week-long training session at NYIT’s New York campuses.

Tony Lei Tong, Amal al Dallal, and Lina Mattar, associate directors of alumni and employer relations at NYIT-Nanjing, Bahrain, and Amman, respectively, joined the NYIT community earlier this year. From July 25—29, they worked with colleagues in New York to define the best ways to serve students and graduates through NYIT career counseling and networking events around the world.

“In six short months, Amal, Lina, and Tony have made indelible marks in their regions; each has performed in world-class fashion,” said Joe Fortine, director of alumni relations, who planned the training and orientation week with Dean of Career Services, John Hyde.

“We did our best to balance training with the social and educational aspects of the university and New York,” said Hyde. In between workshops on the alumni mentors program, experiential learning, and career management, Tong, al Dallal and Mattar were able to meet with NYIT staff and take in a Yankee game, a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and a cruise around Manhattan.

The three visitors agreed that training time with their New York counterparts will allow them to “take our work to the next level,” according to al Dallal, (B.S. ’08, M.B.A. ’10).

“It’s been a great pleasure to be here and meet all the staff from Career Services and Alumni Relations; they are all so supportive of our work,” added Tong, (M.S. ’09).

Mattar added that the best way to express gratitude is by “taking what we've learned here and going back to our regions to make things happen.”
