A Gift from Dr. Francis J. Murphy, ’72, Supports
the Transformations Campaign

Dr. Francis J. Murphy

Dr. Francis J. Murphy, Class of 1972, has made a gift of $100,000 in support of NYUCD’s “Transformations” campaign, which aims to transform the way dentistry is taught, practiced, and advanced.

“NYUCD is the school that launched my career,” said Dr. Murphy. “I feel indebted to NYUCD and I want to do as much as I can to help this great institution advance. I am delighted that I can do this by supporting Dean Alfano’s campaign to strengthen NYUCD’s student and faculty body, upgrade our academic programs and facilities, and globalize our resources. I see my gift both as an investment in NYUCD’s future and in the value of my diploma. There’s no question that NYUCD is a “hot” school today, and I feel privileged to be able to advance its aims.”

“From the time I became Dean in 1998,” said Dean Alfano, “Francis Murphy has been both a leader in the profession and a staunch supporter of his alma mater. By making such a wonderful gift, he has gone far beyond his loyalty of more than 30 years.”
