Merck Presents Certificate of Appreciation to City Tech President Hotzler
New York City College of Technology (City Tech) President Russell Hotzler was awarded a certificate of appreciation from Merck & Company for his ongoing support of a partnership between the firm and the College. Implemented in Spring 2012, this partnership is with the City Tech Department of Nursing’s baccalaureate program. The initiative enables students to supplement their coursework by working on a specific aspect of a healthcare research project sponsored by Merck. This provides students with a taste of the industry knowledge and research experience they will face in the increasingly competitive, technologically advanced, business-oriented healthcare environment.
