RSH Board Member and English Professor George Guida named City

New York City College of Technology (City Tech) has chosen English Professor George Guida as its 2013 Scholar on Campus for his outstanding work as a poet, fiction writer, critic, editor and teacher. He will deliver his Scholar on Campus lecture, “Creativity, Language and Life,” and read from his poetry, on Monday, April 22, at 5 p.m., in Namm Hall 119, 300 Jay Street (at Tillary Street), in Downtown Brooklyn. Sponsored by City Tech’s Professional Development Advisory Council, the lecture is free and open to the public.

“Creativity is a means, but, more importantly, it is an end in itself,” Dr. Guida says about the subject of his lecture. “For me, the greatest example of creativity as its own goal is the exercise and the pleasure of human language.”

“Professor Guida truly exemplifies the ideals of the Scholar on Campus award,” says Pamela Brown, City Tech’s associate provost. “In addition to his impressive publication record, he serves the community through readings across the region and as co-founder of the College Poetry Slam at the Bowery Poetry Club, a competition where poets can read or recite their work.”

The Scholar on Campus award is made to a member of the faculty who has demonstrated extraordinary scholarship and creative work that has had an important impact at the College and in the larger community.
