Hofstra Professor Presents Public Integrity Award to Paul Volcker

At the March 2015 American Society for Public Administration’s Annual Conference in Chicago, Dr. Carole L. Jurkiewicz of the Zarb School of Business presented the Annual Public Integrity Award to Paul Volcker, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve under Presidents Carter and Reagan, and founder of the Volcker Alliance (and a past commencement speaker for the Zarb School 🙂 ). 

The Award is presented each year to an organization that represents a domain of public service, local, state, national, international, or nonprofit, that presents evidence of accomplishing significant programs benefiting the general public. Volcker is the founder and chairman of The Volcker Alliance, which seeks to rekindle intellectual, practical, and academic interest in the implementation of policy, and serve as a catalyst for sustained government improvement.

Volcker was presented the Award for his organization’s work towards rebuilding public trust in government and addressing the effective execution of public policies. Volcker has headed two private, non-partisan Commissions on the Public Service, each recommending a sweeping overhaul of the organizational and personnel practices of the U.S. federal government. Volcker was just one of twenty leading practitioners, scholars, and organizations who were honored for their extraordinary commitment to promoting integrity in public service, advancing scholarship over a lifetime, and serving both the American Society for Public Administration and the public in significant ways.

An Infographic Dictionary for Business Founders

Often times, the lingo involved with startups is in a class by itself. So, what terminology is essential for business founders to know?

As Pedro Sanchez de Lozada writes for Udemy, an online educational firm:

“Silicon Valley not only has its share of startups and founders. It has its own lucrative lingo. Outsiders need time to adjust to such new-found words. Though we see this same lingo popping up in places like New York, Boston, Portland and LA, the Valley is home to some of the most outrageously butchered start-up buzzwords.”

“If you are just visiting, here for a long-term stay, or moving all together, I suggest you become familiar with how the left coasters chat. You may need to know this at your next pitch. Oh, and more importantly, don’t take these definitions too seriously.”
