Dr. George Karnoutsos ’55, a professor emeritus of philosophy at New Jersey City University whose commitment to his alma mater spans more than five decades and whose $2.5 million gift in celebration of his 50th reunion remains the University’s largest to date, has donated another significant gift: $440,000 to help support scholarships for high-achieving freshmen accepted into the University’s Honors Program.In announcing the gift, NJCU President Sue Henderson thanked Dr. Karnoutsos and said, “Dr. Karnoutsos’ commitment to this University has been unwavering, first as a dedicated and beloved faculty member and, through the years, as one of this University’s most loyal and significant donors. High-achieving students for generations to come will benefit from his unparalleled generosity.”Dr. Karnoutsos, for whom the University’s George Karnoutsos Arts and Sciences Hall is named, taught at his alma mater for 40 years before retiring in 2000. During his four decades at the institution, Dr. Karnoutsos also served as assistant director of graduate services; chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion; and chair and vice chair of the College Senate.
