Last week our New York Board hosted their first-ever event exploring the changing world of higher education and the challenge of access which has become more acute than ever. It was a special night filled with thought-provoking discussion, inspiring stories, and new friends and connections.

We want to thank our generous hosts, Liz Weikes and JPMorgan as well as our special guests John Sexton, President Emeritus of New York University, and Kamal Ahmad, Founder & CEO of AUW for sharing their perspectives on this important topic. And a big thanks as well to Vylyny Chat, AUW Alumna & NYU Doctoral Candidate for sharing her courageous and heart-felt personal story of how AUW helped her achieve her dream of pursuing higher education.
