Our Class of 2020 was truly special. When the pandemic forced all instruction online, our soon-to-be graduates met the challenge of completing their rigorous coursework and Field learning with creativity and grace. Moreover, many of them found ways to serve those most affected by the pandemic. In his own congratulatory message, NYU President Andrew Hamilton observed, “Class of 2020, the same qualities that led you to choose NYU Silver as your academic home will help you make a difference in the world as alumni... The world needs your talents as it begins the task of healing, and I can't wait to see the ways you find to make an impact for the better.”
