President Guiliano Challenges University to Build on Global Vision
Old Westbury, N.Y. (September 1, 2011) ̶ Global classes, conferences, and community service at NYIT show that the teaching and study of the sciences, the humanities, and culture can--and must--cross borders, NYIT President Edward Guiliano said today at the university’s 2011 Convocation.
President Guiliano challenged faculty to continue to build on its vision and record of globalism, which he called "one of our prime differentiators as a university."
“We think globally and act locally; we measure and ensure outcomes that will serve our graduates well into the 21st-century digital economy," President Guiliano said.
As part of the annual convocation, he presented five faculty members with Presidential Technology Awards recognizing their creative and effective use of technology to enhance teaching, research, and service at NYIT.
In his speech, delivered to faculty and staff gathered in Riland Auditorium and broadcast live to the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway, President Guiliano also praised faculty members for their research and scholarship, congratulating them for helping move NYIT “up in class as a scholarly institution.”
