Students Graduate from Albert Dorman Honors College at NJIT

Fifteen students have graduated from the Albert Dorman Honors College at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). 

 The Dorman Honors College is one of the most demanding and rigorous colleges in the state. Dorman builds on NJIT’s rigorous curriculum, offering enriched coursework and seminars, as well as real-world projects with outstanding faculty researchers and industry leaders.

Editor’s Note: Below is a list of the Jan. 2005 graduates from the Dorman Honors College. It includes their majors and their hometowns.

Begun as a pilot program in 1985 and launched as a college of the university in 1994, Dorman today enrolls more than 500 of the nation’s brightest students, with SAT scores in the top 10 percent nationally and with math proficiency in the top two percent. The mission of Dorman is to transform students into leaders – be it in the fields of architecture, engineering, science, technology, business, law or medicine. Many students in Dorman are recipients of merit and need-based scholarships. Dorman is in the midst of a national fundraising campaign, headed by the pre-eminent Princeton architect J. Robert Hillier, which hopes to raise $20 million for an endowed scholarship fund. NJIT is developing a website for the fundraising campaign that will be located at www. njit.edu/honorscampaign. 

More than 600 Dorman graduates have moved on to significant careers in industry and government, and to prestigious and professional schools. They credit Dorman as the catalyst that put them on the path to leadership opportunities in their careers.
