Shiori Taylor Sasaki

Running for: Council

Campaign Statement

I strongly support the return to full tuition scholarships and Peter Cooper’s founding values that quality education should be accessible to all regardless of gender, race, religion or economic status. My experience spans architecture, planning, engineering, and technology, and combined with my deep appreciation for the arts, I am uniquely positioned to communicate and collaborate across disciplines toward a common goal. It would be a privilege to serve the Cooper Union and alumni community as a member of the Alumni Council.
