NYIT named its flagship building at 1855 Broadway in Manhattan the Edward Guiliano Global Center on March 16. Pictured is President Guiliano with Chair of the NYIT Board of Trustees Linda Davila (B.S. ’78) and Chief of Staff Peter Kinney.
Upon visiting an NYIT campus, one may see buildings adorned with the names of people who have left indelible marks on the university throughout its nearly six decades—pioneers, donors, and educators including David G. Salten, Anna Rubin, Hannah and Charles Serota, Harry J. Schure, Midge Karr, John J. Theobald, Nelson A. Rockefeller, W. Kenneth Riland, and George and Gertrude Wisser.
On March 16, 2012, a crowd of students, alumni, faculty, and staff gathered outside the flagship building of NYIT's Manhattan campus to honor the newest member of this exclusive group of leaders, a man whose name is synonymous with NYIT's worldwide expansion in the 21st century.
Located at 1855 Broadway, the newly christened Edward Guiliano Global Center is home to NYIT's schools of Architecture and Design and Engineering and Computing Sciences, a library and study center, and administrative offices. NYIT purchased the 12-floor building in 1976.
“President Guiliano has been a transformational leader of long standing, whose commitment to NYIT, scholarship, and philanthropy have heightened the university’s brand, impact, and outcomes in New York and throughout the world,” Linda Davila (B.S. ’78), chair of the NYIT Board of Trustees, told the audience gathered at Broadway and West 61st Street.
Guiliano, who holds degrees from Brown University and Stony Brook University, joined NYIT in 1974 as an English professor and was vice president for academic affairs and provost before becoming president. He is a renowned expert on Victorian literature, particularly the works of Charles Dickens and Lewis Carroll.
Since 2000, as president of NYIT, Guiliano has overseen the largest renovation and construction of campus facilities in the university's history, and has implemented an ambitious strategic plan to guide the university's growth for the next two decades. He is credited with transforming NYIT from a regional school into a global institute with campuses in six countries, implementing a range of interdisciplinary programs, augmenting the university's technology, and establishing a worldwide branding and marketing campaign.
Weeks before the ceremony, a virtual wall gave hundreds of faculty, students, alumni, and friends the chance to congratulate President Guiliano.
"I was startled by the remarkable, overwhelmingly generous postings people made online—thank you. This virtual wall had the added reward of connecting me with several of my former students, a reminder of what is right about a career in higher education and why I am here," said President Guiliano at a reception following the March 16 event inside the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway. "In those postings, you all share in the pride and nobility of what we do."
