Remarks by President Sexton Highlight Event

The College of Dentistry held its annual Donor Recognition event at the New York Stock Exchange on June 30, 2010. The event paid tribute to alumni and friends who made gifts of $1,000 or more to the College over the past year.

More than 100 guests were delighted by the uniqueness of the venue and by remarks from NYU President John Sexton, who praised Dean Bertolami, the NYUCD faculty, and the generosity of benefactors who have made NYUCD a magnet for outstanding students and new faculty, including Dr. Brian Schmidt, Director of the Bluestone Center, who was formally introduced at the gala.

"You are an overwhelmingly gifted and dedicated group of people," said President Sexton. "The role that the College of Dentistry plays in the life of New York University cannot be overestimated," he added.
