In June, the Barnard College Board of Trustees elected Cheryl Glicker Milstein ’82, P ’14 as Chair of the Board. First elected to the Board in 1999, Milstein has served as vice-chair since 2010, lending her time, attention, and philanthropic support to the College in many significant ways. She and her husband Philip L. Milstein CC ’71, P ’14 generously supported The Diana Center, whose Black Box Theatre bears her name, and they provided the transformational naming gift for The Cheryl and Philip Milstein Center for Teaching and Learning, which opens this fall.
Milstein succeeds Jolyne Caruso-FitzGerald ’81, who led the Board for eight years and served as a Trustee since 2000. Caruso-FitzGerald presided over many of the College’s most recent significant decisions: the launch of the current capital campaign, the transgender admissions policy, the adoption of the Foundations curriculum, and the decision to build The Milstein Center.
“Both Jolyne and Cheryl deserve our deepest thanks for their devotion and service to Barnard,” says President Sian Leah Beilock. “I have no doubt Cheryl’s leadership will continue to fortify the College in the years to come.” •
