Student Support Fund Honors Scheinman
An ILR School student support fund honoring the contributions of Martin F. Scheinman '75, MS '76, to the world of work has been established by the Scheinman Institute.
"Marty has passionately and generously committed himself to the goal of creating the next generation of neutrals. And in so many ways, Marty has touched us," said Harry Katz, ILR's Jack Sheinkman Professor and director of the Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution.
"We need your help to accomplish Marty's dream by supporting the Scheinman Institute and its commitment to labor, management and neutrals working together. This would include providing resources for students on the Cornell campus who are engaged in internships, study projects and other learning experiences, as well as enabling the Institute to engage in other programs and initiatives working toward that goal," Katz said.
"Funds also will be used to provide fellowship support to diverse professional students entering our newly launched third cohort labor arbitrator development program. Through this program, we are striving to create a demographically diverse pool of well-trained neutrals who are representative of, and through their life experiences understanding of, those whose workplace conflicts are being resolved through arbitration and mediation," Katz said.
More information about contributing to the fund, established on Scheinman's 70th birthday (contributors are encouraged to make gifts including the digits '70'), is available here.
