About the Event
The annual President’s Forum, held in the fall on the college’s beautiful campus in Valhalla, NY, focuses on important public issues such as the media, foreign affairs, the economy, and education. We are proud to have had prominent guests such as President Clinton, Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and Madeleine Albright, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Paul Volcker, journalists Paul Krugman and Paul Gigot, in addition to many others. The funds raised support the Foundation’s Scholarship and Program Fund.
