More than 100 people recently gathered at an annual awards luncheon to honor the exceptional work and commitment of more than a dozen individuals associated with the College of Science and Liberal Arts at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).

They included the following individuals.
Three graduate students were presented awards.
