On Friday, April 24, the New York University Alumni Association (NYUAA) will recognize five outstanding graduates from across the University for their exceptional personal and professional achievements and contributions to society. Meet Ted Allen (GSAS ’90) and Martin Cohen (STERN ’76), who are receiving the Distinguished Alumnus Award and Cristi Marie Hegranes (GSAS ’05), who is being honored with the Distinguished Young Alumna Award.
NYU is proud to announce the development of a new health care, education, and research facility in the heart of the NYU health sciences corridor in Manhattan. The building will feature lecture halls, offices, and research facilities for three schools: the NYU College of Nursing, College of Dentistry, and School of Engineering.

Happy Social Work Month! Did you know that the Silver School of Social Work began with a dentist?
The former dentist opened Youth House in 1944 as a temporary residence for children in juvenile detention. Within a few years, the House began offering field instruction to pre-professional social work students from NYU.

Events for NYU alumni take place almost every day at locations in the New York City metro area, across the US, and around the world. This past month, alumni gathered in locations from Katz's Deli in NYC to Abu Dhabi to Seattle, and many places in between.

Can’t recall the punchline? For Albert Podell (LAW ’76) it’s not the setup of a joke, it’s his life journey. Podell’s career has taken him from roles as an editor at Playboy, to creating advertising campaigns for movies, to lobbyist, lawyer, and author; but it’s his most recent achievement that makes a resume you won’t find from anyone else in the world: Al Podell has visited every country in the planet.
The NYU community remembers the amazing life of Jill Claster (WSC ’53, GSAS ’54), a distinguished scholar, teacher, mentor, and the first woman and alumna to serve as dean of NYU’s College of Arts and Science.
