On behalf of the GSAPP Alumni Organization Board, it is my pleasure to announce that the Rutgers University Alumni Association (RUAA) selected the GSAPP Alumni Organization (AO) to receive one of its Excellence in Alumni Leadership Awards. The RUAA presents the Rutgers Excellence in Alumni Leadership Awards annually to recognize alumni and other members of the university community who devote their time and talents to further the mission of the alumni association and of Rutgers. The Rutgers Excellence in Alumni Leadership Awards are the highest honor for volunteers within the university.
In particular, the GSAPP AO will receive the Student Engagement Award. This award recognizes a charter group that engages current or incoming students in meaningful connections with alumni that ultimately foster a lifelong connection to Rutgers. The GSAPP AO will be recognized for its mentoring program, which pairs each incoming student with an alumni mentor, as well as for its professional workshops and its social networking events that have occurred throughout the past year. The GSAPP AO will be recognized at an awards reception on October 14, 2016. The GSAPP AO remains committed to fostering strong connections with our students to guide them on their professional journeys. Please join me in thanking and congratulating all of our alumni who have so selflessly volunteered their time and talents to our students.
Peter DeNigris, Psy.D.
