On May 15th, SoMAS celebrated the retirement of Analytical Lab technician David Hirschberg and Sustainability Studies faculty Jim Quigley.
David Hirschberg has been a part of SoMAS for 25 years, starting in the graduate program where he received his Masters in 1979. David has done work with some rather unique instruments over the years and will be hard to replace.
Jim Quigley who joined the Sustainability Studies Program in 2007. He has a Ph.D. in City and Regional planning and prior to coming to SBU worked as a researcher, educator, and administrator focused on issues of waste disposal, renewable energy, energy conservation, and environmental policy. He has been the faculty director for the Environmental Design, Planning, and Policy (EDP) major since its inception. Jim has taught many courses for the EDP and the Sustainability Studies Program. Students and faculty appreciate his outgoing personality and his strong sense of mission.
Both will be greatly missed! Thank you for your years of service!
