Dear YU Community,

We are excited to share with you the latest edition of the View from YU.

In it you will find stories focused on our University’s four strategic priorities:

Great Jobs and Impactful Careers

  • Drs. Felix and Miriam Glaubach have donated a $10 million gift to advance the work of the YU Career Center, now renamed the Shevet Glaubach Center for Career Strategy and Professional Development. The enhanced Center will guide our students with job placements and arm them with strategies for success for impactful careers in an ever-changing market.

Science and Technology

  • YU has also signed an agreement with Montefiore Medicine to launch a joint Yeshiva University-Albert Einstein College of Medicine B.A./B.S.-M.D. program. Beginning Fall 2022, the program will further the University’s commitment to education in science and technology.

Values and Leadership

  • New educational initiatives from the Fish Center on Holocaust and Genocide Studies demonstrate the Center’s leadership in promoting the Jewish values at the heart of YU.

Entrepreneurship and Innovation

  • The Stock Market Challenge run by Sy Syms students showcases the entrepreneurial creativity of our business-savvy undergraduates.

All these stories and more, in the latest edition of the View from YU, are signs of how we are building for the future while successfully meeting the challenges of today.
