From: Jennifer Mangels, Chair, Department of Psychology
Alan Pearlman, the Chief CLT of the Psychology Department, a long-time member of the college beloved for his dedication to students, and a fierce defender for the PSC-CUNY community, died in March 2017. The department has set up a memorial fund to honor his contributions to CUNY. Currently we have raised just over $2,500, but hope to bring that to $10,000 by June 30 in order to purchase a bench in his name for the 25th street plaza, or scholarships for deserving students. We appreciate any donations you can provide.
The Baruch College Fund site can be found at www.tinyurl.com/alanpearlman. For those that would like to mail gifts rather than go online, please make a check out to BCF/Alan Pearlman Memorial Fund and mail it to One Bernard Baruch Way, A-1603, New York, NY 10010. Attn: Nicole Souza.
Alan began employment at Baruch College in 1972 and would have received acknowledgement of his 45 years of service at this year’s service awards ceremony. For the past 10 years of that service, he spent his time in the main office of the Psychology Department, where he was its heart and conscience.
When a distraught or confused student came to the office trying to figure out how to navigate the CUNY system, he used his years of expertise to help them find the way. “Another satisfied customer,” he’d say with a big smile across his face, knowing a he’d helped bring a student a little closer to graduation or at least to getting to their class. He also stood up in defense of students, faculty or staff when he saw something that wasn’t working and were attention was needed. As department chair, I knew that if he came to me to alert me of a problem, it was something where I should put some thought. He was on the front lines, from his chair at the front desk. He mattered, and he helped me understand what mattered. For this, I will always be grateful.
Chair, Department of Psychology
