I believe strongly in the importance of partnering with our community to shape the future of the institution we are working to build together. Listening and learning were a key part of my transition prior to formally becoming president of The Cooper Union, and I am continuing that process now that I have officially begun. To that end I invite all students, faculty and staff to participate in sharing ideas and concerns with me both publicly and in private through the below engagement opportunities and others that will arise throughout the year. Additionally, I will be working with the CUAA to create opportunities for sharing ideas and concerns specifically with alumni. I encourage everyone to join in the process of moving The Cooper Union forward.
--Laura Sparks, president of The Cooper Union
