“I am excited for the opportunity to realize at GCNYC the unique mission to tie higher education programming to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This position offers something very rare in higher education: the chance to lead and help expand a new college and to do so in support of a mission to improve the future. So many of us struggle to make meaningful changes that live up to our convictions.  At GCNYC and its parent university, we are making those changes a reality.”
