Bookmark and Share

Baruch College students Sean Chang '11 and Cristina Noboa, ’11 have been selected as part of the latest group of NextGen leaders by the American Humanics Program. Chang, a Zicklin undergraduate, and Noboa, a student of the School of Public Affairs, were selected from an applicant pool of more than 140 students representing 26 affiliated colleges. A third Baruch College student, Jose Sanchez, was also named a NextGen leader last June. As future leaders in the non-profit sector, winners of the NextGen award complete competitive 300-hour internships, for which they receive generous stipends.


The American Humanics program dates back to 1948. It was established to help prepare a racially and ethnically diverse group of students to assume leadership positions in the non-profit sector. Since it was established at Baruch College, several dozen students have taken advantage of the Humanics curriculum.
