In addition to the Steinhardt Dean’s Council, Drukier is also a member of the NYU Board of Trustees, where she is on the Academic Affairs Committee after serving as committee chair for several years. Much of Drukier’s philanthropy centers on University programs, medicine, and the arts. At NYU Steinhardt, she has endowed the Gale and Ira Drukier Dean and the Gale and Ira Drukier Scholarship for Flute Players.
“We are honored to have the Gale Drukier Flute once again bringing the joy of music to NYU Steinhardt,” said Jack H. Knott, Gale and Ira Drukier Dean. “We are deeply grateful to Gale for this special gift which will be treasured by generations of woodwind students in the years to come.”
Meghan Bennett, music assistant professor and the new director of woodwind studies, performed with the Gale Drukier Flute at a special instrumental performance at the Paulson Center on October 26.
