More Than a Dozen at CU Facilities Graduate with Master's Degrees

During the week of May 17, 2010, Morningside campus was marked by a sea of blue and white caps and gowns, as Columbia University celebrated its annual Commencement and subsequent Class Day activities of the 256th academic year. Among the degree recipients--more than a dozen outstanding Facilities team members. The newly crowned masters in their fields completed studies in a variety of disciplines that include: real estate development, construction administration, and negotiation and conflict resolution.

A few of the graduates came together for a celebratory group photo and were joined by Facilities Executive Vice President Joe Ienuso, who happily congratulated the excited group on their achievements and newfound skills.
