Recent Alumni Hear from GS Dean Peter J. Awn

February 17, 2010

There was a great turnout of recent alumni at Taj on the evening of Tuesday, February 16, giving GSers an opportunity to reconnect with their friends as well as make new ones. Dean Peter J. Awn spoke to the room, saying the school is currently in great shape, with enrollment at an all time high.

GS students continue to be strong academically and, thanks in large part to the support of alumni, the GS Annual Fund continues to help current students with financial aid.

Marguerite Daniels ’05 of the Recent Alumni Leadership Committee (RALC) also spoke about the upcoming events that RALC is supporting including the Women of GS / Women in Science event scheduled for March 25th to celebrate Women’s History Month. All are welcome to attend and hear a conversation with renowned alumnae Danielle Greenberg ’75, director of Nutrition and Scientific Affairs at PepsiCo; NYU Professor Michele Shedlin ’68GS, ’82GSAS, '75 ’82PH, medical anthropologist in reproductive health and HIV research; and ophthalmologist Rochelle Peck ’76 as they discuss the rewards and challenges of being a woman working in a scientific field with Columbia Professor Liz Miller from Biological Sciences.
