Prof. Ted Joyce Awarded 2005 Sidney Lirtzman Prize
Praised for Exemplary Teaching, Research, Service Record
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.
