Yvette Francis A’93
Running for: Nominating Committee
I absolutely love Cooper Union. It was, is and forever will be apart of the fabric of my being.
I met my lifelong friends (my Cooper core) at this great institution.
As a student, I was an active member of student government. After graduating, I was one of the founding members of the Young Alumni Committee. Our main goal at the time, was an extension of what we strived to achieve in student government: How to get students/alumni from the three schools to interact with each other more. From the Dinner/Dance Cruise around Manhattan to the Art Auction & Casino Night events, the goal was always the same, how to keep young alums sticky.
