In July of 2019, Dr. Arlene “Lu” Steinberg ’86F took over the chairmanship of the Ferkauf Board of Overseers from Dr. Carol Bravmann, who had served as chair for ten years.
“During my tenure,” said Dr. Bravmann, “our board was instrumental in obtaining scholarships as well as funding for facility improvement. My decision to step down as chair was a very difficult one. However, I have enormous confidence in Dr. Steinberg, who is an intelligent and highly committed individual who will undoubtedly help the school continue to grow and flourish and lead it to new heights.”
Dr. Vincent Alfonso, interim dean, noted that “Dr. Steinberg and I are working tenaciously on moving Ferkauf forward in all ways including: raising the academic and community profiles, improving working conditions for all employees and students, and planning for the future or sustainability of academic programs, scholarly productivity and clinical services to the community.”
