Eric Schwarz - 2013 REAL Award

A Livingston Alumni Association board member for more than five years, Eric C. Schwarz (LC'92, SCILS '92,'07) serves as an advocate for Rutgers' Livingston College and its alumni. For his efforts, the Rutgers University Alumni Association (RUAA) honored Schwarz with its Block R Award, part of the Rutgers Excellence in Alumni Leadership Awards presented October 25, 2013, as part of the Alumni Leaders Conference and Homecoming weekend.

Schwarz is 2016-17 president of the LAA and a former secretary and vice president of the organization. He is responsible for maintaining the LAA online presence. Schwarz has maintained the LAA news feeds, website, and Facebook page; manages meeting logistics and communications; and works closely with the executive team to set the group’s direction. Additionally, Schwarz volunteers his time at virtually every LAA event as well as RUAA Homecoming, Reunion, and community service projects.

The Block R Award recognizes service to the alumni body through volunteer involvement in charter organizations, working with university partners in support of Rutgers’ community initiatives, and through other specific volunteer roles.

The other 2013 Block R Award honorees are: Brian Greczyn (SBC'97, ‘00), Cheryl Machleder (RC'02, SMLR'02) and Anik Roy (RBS'01).

Fellow Livingston College graduate Katty Rivera (LC'04, GSE'09) received the Scarlet Oak Meritorious Service Award at the same ceremony.
