For Reinstating Dr. Grazia at New York College of Health Professions
Dr. Grazia is a talented, dedicated and beloved professor and mentor who has had a deep and lasting impact on the lives and future of many New York College of Health Professions' students and is dedicated to their success. In his students own words: “He is a wonderful person and a fabulous teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable and very receptive to any questions. He is a warm spirit who loves to share his wealth of information.” “Dr. Grazia has taken a subject that usually does not get taken with interest. He made learning fun. He was always prepared and had extra videos and music that had the class singing and laughing. No one wanted to miss the class. At the end of the semester, the whole class applauded him” “Dr. Grazia is a wealth of useful information. Great sense of humor and personable with all students. He is very supportive of those with difficulties. By far my favorite Professor in this school.” “Wonderful teacher! Gives out very clear handouts each class and before tests, gives great reviews so you are prepared for his tests...tries to help each and every students everytime. I will definitely take his class in the future!! Strongly recommend! A+” The removal of Dr. Grazia from his longstanding position would be a great loss to future New York College students, denying them the opportunity to benefit from his knowledge and the skills, passion, enthusiasm, humor, and love he brings to teaching. It was unjust to terminate Dr. Grazia based on his inability to handle the position of Dean as well as teacher. Dr. Grazia and New York College are best served by having Dr. Grazia perform the position he is most qualified for and the one that he excels at, being an exceptional, respected and dedicated professor. In light of the extremely large and inexplicable turnover of staff and professors at New York College, Dr. Grazia is precisely the kind of professor New York College cannot afford to lose and who should be back in his classroom where he belongs.
