Dennis Di LorenzoDennis Di Lorenzo

Following an extensive national search, Dennis Di Lorenzo was named dean of the NYU School of Professional Studies (NYUSPS) in September 2013. One year later, his deanship was named in honor of Harvey J. Stedman, a predecessor in that role. Having served as interim and vice dean of NYUSPS, in addition to holding other senior-level positions for nearly 20 years, Dean Di Lorenzo has an in-depth understanding of the School that few can claim. This knowledge is eclipsed only by his enthusiastic passion for and palpable dedication to the School, as evidenced by the key leadership role he has played in its evolution and growth. Dean Di Lorenzo has, among many other initiatives, fostered the development of innovative programming; provided insight and guidance on faculty and student affairs issues; expanded the School’s horizons in the US and abroad; and overseen the renovation of 7 East 12th Street, the flagship home for the NYU School of Professional Studies. The NYU School of Professional Studies serves as the NYU home for study and applied research pertaining to those knowledge-based industries in which the New York region leads globally. Given the current emphasis to bridge the gap between an individual’s practical learning needs and the requirements of industry, the School’s 82-year history and mission in this arena are proving to be of even greater application and import today. The connections between students and the workplace and between the classroom and industry have strengthened significantly under Dean Di Lorenzo’s stewardship. The School serves as a think tank for industry, addressing challenges in business models and anticipating the required skill sets of the future workforce. Recently, Dean Di Lorenzo introduced the nondegree Professional Pathways program, which is comprised of Career Advancement Courses designed for established working professionals, and Diploma Programs for the underemployed and unemployed, to help them acquire skills and job training in fields that are hiring. During his tenure, the dean has cultivated unprecedented and frequent open dialogue with students, faculty members, and administrators. The School is committed to building community and to improving student experience and outcomes—goals that remain consistently at the top of his agenda. These objectives have motivated Dean Di Lorenzo to implement several important initiatives. The International Student Support Center (ISSC) was created to serve a diverse and growing international student population. It offers programs and services to ease the transition for international students—academically and socially—as they adapt to a new culture and learning environment. The NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development at NYUSPS launched in Fall 2012 to support the career development of the School’s graduate and undergraduate students. Consistent with the NYU mission of expanding its global network to prepare students for lives and careers in a diverse world, the School opened the NYUSPS American Language Institute Tokyo Center in 2014, and recently launched the NYUSPS American Language Institute at NYU Shanghai. The dean is developing additional initiatives that will continue to bring the School’s brand of education to locations around the world—enterprises that will respect and accommodate the cultures of the countries with which the School engages. Spearheading the charge for professional education here and abroad, the NYU School of Professional Studies continues to investigate, implement, and nurture programs that elucidate professional requirements and industry trends to prepare the leaders of the future. In addition to his role at NYUSPS, for the last 10 years, Dean Di Lorenzo also has been acting in a public service capacity, building consensus and creating public policy, as a trustee member of the Harrison, New York Board of Education, which serves a multicultural, pre-K through 12th-grade student population. He and his wife Jennifer are the pr

Jonathan M. TischJonathan M. Tisch

Co-Chairman of the Board and Office of the President, Loews Corporation; Chairman, Loews Hotels & Resorts

Jonathan M. Tisch is co-chairman of the board and a member of the Office of the President of Loews Corporation, one of the largest diversified financial holding companies in the U.S., and is chairman of its subsidiary, Loews Hotels & Resorts.

During his tenure as CEO, Tisch engineered the company’s expansion and emergence as a leading luxury hotel brand by infusing the properties with a widely praised corporate culture that places a high value on partnerships that empower employees, satisfy customers, contribute to communities, and improve the bottom line.

Believing you can do well and good at the same time, Tisch is a champion of corporate responsibility and active citizenship. He initiated the Loews Hotels Good Neighbor Policy, a recipient of the U.S. President’s Service Award, 25 years ago. He is the naming benefactor of the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University, where he is also vice chair of the Board of Trustees.

Tisch is the author of three best-selling books: The Power of We: Succeeding through Partnerships; Chocolates on the Pillow Aren’t Enough: Reinventing the Customer Experience; and Citizen You: Doing Your Part to Change the World. He hosted the Emmy-nominated and Gracie Award-winning television series Beyond the Boardroom with Jonathan Tisch, where he spoke with some of America’s preeminent business luminaries.

Nationally recognized as a leader in the multi-billion dollar travel and tourism industry, he founded and served as chairman of the Travel Business Roundtable, and now serves as chairman emeritus of the United States Travel Association. Tisch is committed to a vibrant tourism industry in NYC, where for nearly six years he served as chairman of NYC & Company.  In recognition of his leadership, Crain’s New York Business named him one of the inaugural members of their Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who have transformed the City in both their professional work and in their civic and philanthropic activities. Crain’s had previously named Tisch one of the “Top Ten Most Influential Business Leaders.”

Tisch is a co-owner of the New York Football Giants and was instrumental in bringing the 2014 Super Bowl to the metropolitan area. He served as co-chair of the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee. This is Tisch’s twenty-second year as conference chair.
