The Outreach Pre-College Program is profoundly grateful to the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Foundation for its major support. We gratefully acknowledge our other generous donors: The Altman Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, and The Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation.

Outreach is happy to welcome back Ava's Smile for a special post-Outreach web design project with guest artist Wendy Qi.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
