Penn Law Announces Silverman-Rodin Scholars and Silverman Professor of Law  1 - 2

Henry Silverman

Mr. Silverman, chairman, CEO and president of Cendant Corporation, made a $15 million commitment to Penn Law School in 1998. Eight million dollars financed a major restoration and renovation of the Law School’s original building, now known as Silverman Hall. Another $2 million established the Silverman Professorship, and $5 million will now fund a scholarship program.

Mr. Silverman, who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1964, is a trustee of the University of Pennsylvania and its healthcare affiliate Penn Medicine. He is also a Commissioner of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and a member of JP Morgan’s National Advisory Board. In addition, he is a trustee of New York University and its School of Medicine and Medical Center, and a director of the NYU Child Study Center.

Dr. Judith Rodin

In 1998, Mr. Silverman received the American Heritage Award from the Anti-Defamation League for lifetime achievement in fighting discrimination. He has been honored twice for his efforts to promote diversity in the workplace: in 2001 by the Jackie Robinson Foundation and in 2003 by the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
