Announcing a New Derner Ph.D. Alumni Chapter

News, Newsletter

During the months leading up to the April 2012 celebration honoring Professor Patrick L. Ross, alumni and students joined forces to fundraise for the Patrick L. Ross Fellowship Fund.

Their successful joint efforts had a wonderful by-product—the formation of the Derner Ph.D. Alumni Chapter, which will be led by a steering committee comprised of alumnae Sherry Breslau, B.A. ’91, M.A. ’93, Ph.D. ’96; Tanya Cotler, M.A. ’08, Ph.D. ’12; and Allison Rothman, M.A. ’06, Ph.D. ’09.

The committee is already planning for events that encourage friendship and networking among Derner alumni and students. “Alumni have valuable guidance and information to provide students, especially in a tight job market and difficult internship application process,” Dr. Rothman said. She also pointed out that, “We’re in a small and specific field and have the chance to socialize with others of similar interests. There are a lot of social opportunities.” Dr. Rothman called the chapter “a new voice for Derner alumni.”

Chapter leaders welcome input from fellow alumni. For more information or to learn how you can get involved in the Derner Ph.D. Alumni Chapter, contact Erin Gayron at 516.877.3475 or or Jennifer Boglioli at 516.877.3261 or
