Mrs. Sheila Worthington-Lirtzman

Sidney Lirtzman began his career at Baruch in 1967 as a professor of management specializing in organizational behavior and went on to hold various academic and administrative posts, including executive officer of the Doctoral Program in Business, provost, and vice president and dean of the Zicklin School of Business before assuming the position of interim president of Baruch, which he held from 1999 to 2000. Sid retired in 2003, after more than 35 years of service to this institution, with the title dean emeritus, Zicklin School of Business. Among countless programs and initiatives he led and supported, Sid Lirtzman is probably best known for spearheading the original plan to bring a world-class, simulated trading floor and financial center to Baruch. To make that plan a reality, he and the College partnered with alumni patrons Bert (’54) and Sandra (’55) Wasserman and Stuart Subotnick (’62, LLD [Hon.] ’97). He died on April 2, 2017 at the age of 86.
