Engaging Virtual Programs Featured at Reunion 2022

Reunion Social
At the end of April 2022, NYU Stern hosted its first hybrid Reunion, a blend of both virtual and traditional in-person events. The weeklong celebration began with an impressive lineup of virtual discussions that featured Stern faculty, administrators, parents, and more. Virtual programs included A Conversation with Professors Scott Galloway and David Yermack and Synthetic Biology and Rewriting the Rules of Life with Professor Amy Webb. Many programs highlighted contemporary themes, such as Transforming “The Great Resignation” into “The Great Reimagination,” hosted by the Stern Women in Business (SWIB) Alumnae Committee. Virtual programs were open to all members of the Stern community and links to all the video content are featured below.  

In addition to the weeklong virtual programs, the School hosted class cocktail receptions on Friday night followed by a celebration at Tavern on the Green on Saturday evening. See highlights from these events.
