Ron Vogel CHE’01/MCHE’15

Running for: Treasurer

Campaign Statement

As the current CUAA Treasurer, I support the CUAA and its Committees so they operate as nimbly as possible.  Transparency and efficiency have been central as I refine the budgeting process so that the CUAA and the School can work best together in the coming years. 

Sound financial and organizational decisions are even more important in light of the pandemic. In that vein, I led a successful effort to secure pro-bono representation from a top-tier tax attorney to advise the CUAA on decisions related to its non-profit (i.e. 501(c)) status.  

As Treasurer (or an unelected alumnus), I will continue to seek input from inside and out of the CUAA to the serve the School in its Return to Free. 


Ron worked as a financial analyst on Wall Street early in his career, and then as chemist and engineer for several years before attending law school.

He now works as life sciences patent lawyer, where he counsels clients faced with complex legal, financial, and scientific issues.  

Ron has a B.S. in Finance from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a B.E and M.E. in Chemical Engineering from the Cooper Union, and a J.D. from Fordham University School of Law. He has passed the CFA Level I and Level II exams.

Ron is also pursuing a Master’s degree in immunology (expected 2022).

He leverages all of the above in his role as the current CUAA Treasurer.
