    Since the inception of EOLIS, Wendeen Eolis has been an active leader and supporter of initiatives to give back--first and foremost to her alma mater, NYU. The University's late president,  L. Jay Oliva, was an advisor to Wendeen and a major influence in her decision to go into business. She has served as an advisor on the Dean's counsel at NYU Law School, is a member of NYU's Torch Society, and is a proud donor of additional time, funding, and services to the University.

    EOLIS' award-winning law student intern program--recognized in a Citation by the Reagan White House and the  "Most Distinguished Achievement" award conferred by the International Confederation of Personnel  Services has been in continuous operation since 1969. Since 1969, law students from all around the country and Wendeen’s alma matter, NYU, have been participating in the EOLIS intern program.

    Wendeen has served as a leader in executive search associations in critical growth periods. She has earned numerous industry awards for her contributions to upgraded standards designed to serve and protect consumers. Her longstanding commitment to improving life and welfare for others is also demonstrated in not-for- board directorships, participation on advisory councils, government task forces and commissions.
