Anthony A. Gabb
M.A., Ph.D., New School for Social Research
Dr. Gabb has been a professor of economics since 1979. He has been at St. John’s University since 1988. During his tenure at St. John’s he has served as Division Chair and Associate Dean. He believes that teaching is not a one-size-fits-all proposition, but a student-centered mission that sees each student as a unique individual who needs a cooperative, caring, and stimulating environment in which to grow and mature both individually and collectively. His mission is to help students meet their fullest potential by providing an engaging, collaborative and safe space that invites a sharing of ideas and to understand that we all have the ability to not know everything and that knowledge humbles us to be open to want to know more. He has published and delivered more than 24 papers, including peer-reviewed articles, book chapters and book reviews; chaired several panels at professional associations; his work has appeared in the New York Times and the world-renown Italian newspaper, Corrierre della Sera, and he has been quoted many times; he has appeared on NY Chanel 1 NY; and was a Fulbright (CIES) Scholar to South Africa. Before coming to St. John’s Dr. Gabb was Director of Budget and Administration for two NYC mayoral agencies and a non-profit child welfare organization (responsible for budgets of up to $500,000,000), and adjunct professor at CUNY and Manhattan College.
