Professor Ted Joyce of the Economics and Finance department has been awarded this year’s Sidney Lirtzman Prize, in recognition of his accomplishments in research, teaching, and service to Baruch College. Joyce will receive his award during the naming ceremony for the new Sidney Lirtzman Financial Seminar Hall on Thursday, April 7. The event is scheduled to begin at 5:00 PM in the Information and Technology Building at 151, East 25th Street. “Ted’s distinguished performance in all three areas of our endeavor made him this year’s choice,” said Robert Ducoffe, associate dean at the Zicklin School.

Both the award and the new hall are named in honor of Dr. Sidney Lirtzman, the popular former dean of the Zicklin School of Business and interim president of the College. Lirtzman came to Baruch as a professor of management in 1967 and served in a range of capacities--from provost to the executive officer of CUNY’s doctoral program in business--until he retired in 2003.

Joyce was one of 10 faculty members nominated for the Prize this year. Other nominees included professors Moshe Banai, Raquel Benbunan-Fich, Lauren Block, Jean Boddewyn, Richard Holowczak, Richard Kopelman, Myung-Soo Lee, Robert Schwartz, and Prakash Sethi, all of whom "individually merit praise for their notable contributions as well," said Ducoffe. The six members of the College’s Executive Committee evaluated each candidate and forwarded their recommendations to Dean John Elliott, who made the final choice.
