Mr. Glenn Marrus Awarded University's Highest Administrative Honor

Mr. Glenn Marrus, director of quality assurance, has received the prestigious 2001-2002 Distinguished Administrator Award presented by New York University in recognition of his outstanding achievements as an administrator and his dedicated service to faculty, students, and staff. The award, which is accompanied by a cash gift of $5,000, is a special acknowledgment of the value NYU places on administrative excellence, and a way of formally honoring the significant contributions of administrative and professional staff. It was presented to Mr. Marrus at a dinner in April hosted by former NYU president L. Jay Oliva, who called him an “exemplary University citizen who has helped advance NYU’s goals.”

A member of the NYU Dentistry community for the past 27 years, Mr. Marrus is responsible for monitoring every aspect of the academic programs, business functions, clinical operations, and infrastructure support of the College, and for developing quality assurance guidelines for review and implementation.

Noting that only six individuals were selected from the University-wide award competition, Dean Alfano said, “The Distinguished Administrator Award brings great honor to NYU Dentistry as well as to Glenn, who is probably the first administrator at a dental school to have such a senior position and such broad responsibilities in the area of quality and compliance. His world is a litany of letters—EPA, OSHA, FDA, HIPAA, FDNY, Article 28 among them—and he manages them all with great technical competence and an even higher level of interpersonal skill.”
