Surely in Anne’s life and in her teaching,” wrote Ramapo College Vice President Pamela Bischoff, “we saw firsthand the value of experiential learning, of international, intercultural experiences and of the interdisciplinary approach to education we so value here.”
A member of the founding faculty of the College, Anne Glickman taught for more than 25 years in the School of Social Science and Human Services. Anne graduated from New York University Law School at a time when few women entered the profession and founded the Law and Society major at Ramapo College. She was active in the Legal Aid Society.
“She found time to be a voracious and discriminating reader, a tennis player, an experimenting chef, a peripatetic traveler, a pianist and a gardener,” continued Dr. Bischoff. “It is clear that her own professional and personal activities reflected the very mission of the College.”
At Anne’s death in 2000, her husband, Bernard, established this endowed scholarship in his wife’s memory. Colleagues, friends and family contributed to the fund, which recognizes outstanding female students majoring in Law and Society.
