Featured are three young Baruchians who have set up shop as a clothing designer, the CEO of a gluten-free baked goods company, and a jewelry maker.

Read about School of Public Affairs Associate Professor Jennifer Goldstein, who secured a prestigious multiyear grant to collaborate with scholars and teachers throughout New York City to uncover factors that influence teacher turnover and its impact on school functioning and effectiveness.
