Rosalie M. Sabatino Honored with Pillar Award

MADISON, N.J. (Sept. 24, 2010) —Rosalie M. Sabatino, assistant director of career development, was honored by Fairleigh Dickinson University as a "Pillar" of the campus community at the University's annual Academic Convocation on Sept. 22.

The Pillar Award recognizes exceptional individuals within the University who have made extraordinary contributions to the character and quality of the institution, its community and its cultures. Sabatino is a career counselor and internship coordinator at FDU's College at Florham who works closely with its Silberman College of Business and Becton College of Arts and Sciences.

"An FDU employee for 11 years, you have counseled over 600 students in an academic year, supporting them with everything from internships to interviewing, resume writing and comprehensive workshops for a better understanding of their career goals," said Kenneth Greene, provost of FDU's College at Florham, in presenting the award. "Your presentations throughout campus and your personal messages have propelled many students to prominent positions."

As a Freshmen Seminar instructor, Sabatino helps acclimate and educate students about all aspects of university life. She also created a career module that other instructors can use to introduce students to the career exploration process.

A member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers, Sabatino builds relationships with employers around the state to help students with experiential learning during college and to find careers afterward. She is also active in the New Jersey Cooperative Education and Internship Association as a member and on the executive board, and is a member of New York Women in Communications Inc.

Sabatino served on FDU's Professional Administrative Senate as a campus representative and then board secretary for a total of six years. She received a Campus Recognition Award for Exceptional Service in 2005-06.

Sabatino has a B.A. in communication studies from William Paterson University and an M.A. in career counseling from Montclair State University.  She and her husband, Neil, live in Wayne, N.J.
