Campaign Statement

As a proud graduate of Cooper Union I am grateful and indebted to the school for the knowledge, relationships, and experiences I gained as a student here. I have always supported Cooper Union while finding different ways to further my involvement with the school. I hope that by being an active and engaged member of the Alumni Council I can promote and preserve the school’s legacy and continue to give back to the institution. My goal as an Alumni Council member is to draw in more alumni that may not have been active in the past and to find new ways to create an inclusive, friendly environment for all alumni to build a better future for the entire Cooper community.
