Presidential Fellowship in University and Community Leadership Gears Up for Third Year

Dec 11, 2005 — Yeshiva University’s Presidential Fellowship in University and Community Leadership provides graduates of Yeshiva College, Stern College for Women and Sy Syms School of Business with an opportunity to give back to their alma mater.

Now preparing for its third year, the Presidential Fellows program is part of a broader effort to train top graduates at the university and expand YU’s service to the Jewish community. The Fellows are chosen after an intense screening process based on their academic performance, campus leadership, and concern for the Jewish community. Each fellow will work with a senior administrator, who will serve as a mentor. Fellows will also participate in a leadership seminar for which they receive graduate credit.

“The program takes our top graduates behind the scenes of the institution they have come to know so well as students,” said President Richard M. Joel, who conceived of the program. “My intention is to inspire these young people to develop leadership skills while drawing on their valuable experience as students.”
