LORI RASSAS, JD, OF MANHATTAN, NY,
RECEIVES BERKELEY COLLEGE FACULTY OF THE YEAR AWARD

 

Lori Rassas, JD, Legal Studies, Berkeley College School of Professional Studies, received the Adjunct Faculty of the Year award. A resident of Manhattan, NY, Ms. Rassas was among 18 Berkeley College faculty members and fellow professionals who were recognized by students and colleagues for their contributions to student-centered learning in exceptional ways. Honorees were announced during a dinner reception held at Battery Gardens on November 3, 2016, in Manhattan, NY.

“These annual awards recognize faculty members who serve as role models in demonstrating commitment to the success of Berkeley College students,” said Beth M. Castiglia, PhD, Provost, Berkeley College. “We know they are successful because of their love of teaching. The feedback from their students and colleagues reflect this.”

“I love hearing from my students long after they take one of my classes, when they tell me they were able to apply something they learned to a real-life situation and it enabled them to achieve a benefit they did not think they would have otherwise been able to secure,” Ms. Rassas said.

Other recipients of the Adjunct Faculty of the Year awards included Edgar Gomez, MD, Medical Assistant program, Berkeley College School of Health Studies; Domenico P. Loschiavo, Management, Larry L. Luing School of Business; and Albert Muzikar, Management, Larry L. Luing School of Business.
