In Memoriam: Dr. Carmen Ortiz-Hendricks

The staff and board at Northern Manhattan Improvement Corporation are deeply saddened by the passing of Dr. Carmen Ortiz-Hendricks.

Dr. Ortiz-Hendricks was a passionate and disciplined thinker in her role as a Board member, and contributed to the thoroughness, conviction, and leadership of our work at NMIC. Her engagement challenged all of us to think more deeply and broadly about issues, and to be an organization that is continually learning.

Dr. Ortiz-Hendricks was a beloved social worker who made many contributions to the field. She joined Wurzweiler School of Social Work as Associate Dean in 2005, and in July 2012, was named the Dorothy and David I. Schachne Dean, becoming the first Latina female Dean of Social Work in New York City.

We will forever remember Dr. Ortiz-Hendricks for her generosity, integrity and passion for the Social Work profession. Our condolences to Dr. Ortiz-Hendrick’s family and loved ones.
