In NYT piece, Malkiel remembers Sotomayor '76 the student

Dean of the College Nancy Malkiel made an appearance in Wednesday's New York Times in an article about Sonia Sotomayor '76, the "Trailblazer and a Dreamer" and her time as a student the University.

Says the article:

"She also readily accepted help. When Ms. Sotomayor arrived in Nancy Weiss Malkiel's history class in the spring of her freshman year, for example, she seemed unprepared, Ms. Malkiel recalled in an e-mail message. But Ms. Malkiel tutored her in how to read sources and write analytically, and by late in the semester, Ms. Sotomayor was flourishing."
