Thomas G. Vinci, Ed.D., UGE ’49, professor emeritus and associate dean emeritus at the Graduate School of Education (GSE), died on Nov. 24 at the age of 93.

“My dad considered Fordham his second home and counted many of his colleagues there among his best friends,” said his son Tom Vinci, FCRH ’73, LAW ’77.

“He cherished his decades-long association with such a wonderful institution.”

Vinci joined the Fordham family as an undergraduate at the School of Education, where he earned a B.S. in 1949. He earned an Ed.D. at Columbia University and began teaching at Fordham’s Graduate School of Education in 1967, first as an assistant professor and then as a full professor. He became associate dean of the school in 1974, serving in that position until his retirement in 1988.
