that he wanted to provide a formal place of honor for NYUCD recipients
of the University’s highest teaching and administrative awards over
the past 10 years, Dean Alfano recently unveiled a 70-inch-high by
24-inch-wide monolith made of stainless steel. The monolith, inscribed
with the awardees’ names and set atop a black marbleized base, is
on permanent display in the Arnold Schwartz Memorial Lobby.

has been provided to them as a group on their home turf,” said Dean
Alfano. With the unveiling of this monolith, we will rectify that
