BS ’78, MSW ’79
After receiving a BS and an MSW from NYU School of Social Work, Constance Silver was certified in psychoanalysis, worked in private practice, obtained a PhD, and taught at the School as an adjunct faculty member. She is currently an NYU trustee. She and her husband, Martin, both NYU graduates, recently pledged $50 million to the School, enabling it to strengthen its focus on research-based clinical practice, examine poverty’s causes and solutions, and provide financial aid to a more diverse group of students. In honor of their support, the School was renamed NYU Silver School of Social Work in 2007.
