Hunter College Mourns the Loss of Friend and Supporter Lois Silberman

Hunter College mourns the loss of Lois Silberman, a visionary philanthropist, who along with her beloved husband Buddy, had a deep commitment to social work education as a catalyst to improve NYC communities.

In the 1960s, Silbermans’ generosity helped Hunter build its renowned School of Social Work on East 79th Street. With their continued financial support and guidance, the School’s reputation flourished. Fifty years later, the Silberman family made possible the transformative relocation of our Social Work School to East Harlem, which we proudly rededicated as the Silberman School of Social Work.
