The Columbia School of Social Work community is deeply saddened by the death of Barbara Grodd. A 1979 MS graduate of the School, Barbara was a devoted social worker committed to the ideals of the profession and to the clients for whom she advocated. An active alumna, Barbara served as co-chair of the School's Development Committee, as a member of the Dean's Advisory Board, and as a member of countless other alumni committees. She founded the Barbara and Clifford Grodd Scholarship and was honored by CSSW for her generosity, which helped make possible the School's state-of-the-art facility on Amsterdam Avenue. In honor of her leadership role at CSSW, Barbara was a recipient of the prestigious Columbia University Alumni Medal in 2002. CSSW is proud to have called Barbara an alumna. She will be missed by all who knew her. Our heartfelt condolences are extended to Barbara's family, friends, and colleagues. Irwin Garfinkel, Interim Dean
