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).

“Here at NJIT we think such ceremonies are serious business,” said Fadi Deek, PhD, dean of the college. “It’s a good way to let special individuals know their worth and to teach others that good deeds do get noticed.”  Students, faculty and staff from throughout New Jersey stepped up to the podium to receive the honors. They included the following individuals.

Three graduate students were presented awards.
