By her own admission, Ann E. Shinnar is a tough professor. She even sees it as a “badge of honor,” because in her mind, that means her students are well prepared for a life in science and “understanding how they can take observation and make conclusions.” As a Lander College for Men associate professor of chemistry and deputy chair of the chemistry department, Dr. Shinnar’s main goal is to show those in her lab “what kind of mastery they need to accomplish” to find order amid the universe’s randomness, in the hopes of their doing groundbreaking work. That’s why Dr. Shinnar takes such pride and responsibility in her job. “The mark of a teacher is someone who not only knows the material, but can explain it in detail and convey the important and beauty and excitement of that particular discipline.”

Her father was a professional baseball player in the days before superstar agents and big unions, and his career suffered from subpar representation. Gray still wishes she could have been there to protect her dad’s rights, and has redirected that sense of purpose to individuals ensnared in the justice system or accused of misconduct.

Prior to enrolling with Touro’s Graduate School of Business, Daphne Theodore was working at an H&M retail store in Manhattan. She encountered a deaf man looking for employment, and rather than see his impediment as a liability, she saw past the applicant’s hearing and sensed he’d be a committed, reliable colleague. She was right. The man still works at that H&M, and the experience continues to inspire Daphne as she studies toward a career in human resources. "I\'ll show that HR’s not just about hiring and firing and benefits," she says. "It\'s important for me to see each person as an individual." The way Theodore sees it—and the way Touro’s Graduate School of Business feels in kind—if we can create opportunities for others, it’s the most enriching thing we can do for ourselves.
