2021-2022

The Steering Committee announces the Edward Kleinert Service Award

The Edward Kleinert Service Award honors the memory of a true leader in the CFSC. Ed, a Clinical Associate Professor in SPS, was a representative on the CFSC from 2017 until the time of his passing in Spring, 2022. A steadfast advocate for the dignity of continuing faculty, Ed was a leader not only through his active engagement on various committees, but through his supportive demeanor within the CFSC itself. Ed believed in our ability to make NYU a better place: better for our students and our faculty – and he mentored, encouraged, supported, and gently pushed so many others toward the same goal. The Edward Kleinert Service Award honors continuing faculty who embody Ed’s particular legacy of committed, optimistic service. Nominations can be sent to the Steering Committee in advance of the final meeting of the year and the Steering Committee will typically announce the honoree at that last meeting. On May 24, 2022, the Steering Committee awarded the first Edward Kleinert Service Award to Senator Leila Jahangiri of the College of Dentistry.
