Fairleigh Dickinson University Honors Neal Sturm
Teaneck, NJ (October 8, 2001) — At Fairleigh Dickinson University’s annual Academic Convocation, held October 3, the university community honored distinguished faculty and staff.
A special Presidential Citation was presented to Associate Vice President for Information Resources and Technology Neal Sturm.
Presidential Citations are awarded to those who have successfully initiated an innovative program or process — a program that upholds the academic excellence of the University and provides students with new opportunities to achieve a global education.
Sturm, an FDU alumnus and a member of the University community for 23 years, was honored for his contributions to the University’s electronic and digital services.
In presenting the Citation, President J. Michael Adams said, "In the service of your alma mater you have crafted the pathways and provided the mechanisms that allow our students to explore the world from their dormitory rooms and their classrooms.
"You have empowered our faculty to reach the corners of the earth in their commitment to academic excellence. And you have supported the staff and administration in their efforts to provide both students and faculty with new tools and opportunities."
The academic convocation also included three Distinguished Faculty Awards and four "Pillars of FDU" Awards to staff.
