Joel, he updated students, faculty, administrators, and staff on campus improvements and an array of issues important to university life during meetings at the Beren and Wilf campuses.

He sat down with YU.edu to discuss his progress and goals.
For Hillel Davis, PhD, exchanging the frenetic pace of corporate life for the challenges of academia is a task he relishes. In both spheres, he has applied the values of commitment, compassion and openness- principles that he hopes will define his tenure as YU’s vice president of university life.
