Professor Jane Schuyler, Fine Arts Educator, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Higher Education.
Dr. Schuyler has been professor emeritus of fine arts at York College since 1996, after a prolific career going back to 1970. She was with the City University of New York (CUNY) and York College since 1973, and is recognized as a scholar on Michelangelo and the art of the Italian Renaissance. Dr. Schuyler is most proud of having her books published, and of her two articles featured in William E. Wallace’s “Michelangelo: Selected Studies in English.” She is a recipient of an Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, and has appeared in Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Education, Who’s Who in the East, Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who of American Women, and the 1987 to 1988 first edition of Who’s Who of Emerging Leaders in America.
Born to Frank James and Helen Schuyler in Flushing, New York, Dr. Schuyler’s mother encouraged her to pursue art and inspired her work ethic by being the first in the family to graduate from college. Dr. Schuyler in turn became the first PhD in the family, earning it in 1972 from Columbia University. She is also an alumna of Queens College and Hunter College, which is part of the CUNY system. In 1970, Dr. Schuyler entered teaching as an assistant professor of art history at Montclair State College, and went on to C.W. Post College at Long Island University before rejoining CUNY. She has been an adjunct associate of Long Island University, and was also involved in numerous positions with the Hampton Court Cooperative.
In the coming years, Dr. Schuyler will be healthy and vigorous after surviving ovarian cancer. She has lent her strength to others as a twice-elected delegate of the Democratic Judicial Convention and an elected female member of the Democratic County Committee three times. Dr. Schuyler’s published works include “Michelangelo’s Serpent with Two Tails” and “The Female Holy Spirit (Shekhinah) in Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam,” as well as work on contemporary pieces such as “Tiffany” and “Briggs Publishes Book on Tiffany Glass.” She has supported numerous fine arts and historical societies, and has been granted a number of awards and funding for her work.
