Medical Director, Dr. George Liakeas, and the team of specialists at Lexington Medical Associates have taken remarkably proactive steps in educating and treating the community while allaying fears and concerns caused by the massive COVID-19 global health crisis of 2020. Learn more about their premier Concierge Medical Practice right here in the heard of NYC. We commend their team and all essential medical workers for their tireless efforts.
At this time, we would like to extend special thanks to Professor Susan Lowes, Director of Research and Evaluation at the Institute for Learning Technologies at Columbia University Teachers College, and CUIT for helping us make the transition to Zoom for our 2020 Spring Symposium.
Assistant Provost for Global Initiatives, Dr. Zoe Petropoulou, together with Dr. Athanasia (Nancy) Biska (Modern Greek Language) and Dr. John Angelidis (International Business Management) have worked diligently to develop a dynamic, sustainable program that combines intensive courses in Modern Greek Language and Culture with principles of International Management in the Greek business sector. The course includes travel to Greece to gain first-hand knowledge of the principles presented by the lead instructors.
On Thursday, May 14, the Center for Executive Education at the Peter J. Tobin College of Business will launch the continuation of their Art at Risk: Fortune, Fame and Fashion conference series, building on the successful fine arts conference held in 2019, incorporating panels and alternating case studies for the 2020 event. Conference topics cover broad implications of collecting from pop culture, particularly as it relates to famous people and events, covering the "lifecycle" of either a single object or a collection, meaning acquisition, retention, and disposition, and what factors come into play in each stage. This and related conferences are designed for new and experienced collectors, insurers, lawyers, conservators, appraisers, and collecting institutions such as museums and libraries.
Congratulations Class of 2020!
As always, we wish our young graduates and professionals all the best in the next steps of your journey! New graduates in attendance at the symposium will be recognized at the conclusion of our awards ceremony. Please let us know at sign-in.
