SCHINKE--Steven P. The entire Columbia School of Social Work community notes with deep sadness the death of Professor Steven P. Schinke, the D'Elbert and Selma Keenan Professor of Social Work. A proud veteran of the United States Air Force, Dr. Schinke was a professor at Columbia for over 30 years. Over the years, he served as chair of numerous faculty committees and, most recently, was faculty director of the CSSW online program. In his pursuit of evidence-based interventions, he conducted clinical trials testing prevention programs aimed at improving the lives of America's youth. The recipient of many awards and honors, Dr. Schinke will long be remembered as a scholar, a teacher, a scientist, and a mentor. Sincerest condolences are extended to Dr. Schinke's wife, Mary, their family, and friends. Dr. Irwin Garfinkel, Interim Dean
