The Edward L. Kleinert Faculty Service Award

The Kleinert Faculty Service Award, established in 2022 in honor of Clinical Associate Professor Edward L. Kleinert, recognizes one SPS faculty member each year who has exhibited the dedication and exemplary service to SPS and NYU that were hallmarks of Edward's long career at the School of Professional Studies. The award will go to a faculty member who, like Ed, went above and beyond the call of duty in prioritizing service not only to his students but also to his colleagues, to SPS, and, as a faculty senator and member of university-wide committees, to New York University.
