Madoff, Lehman Brothers, Occupy Wall Street, the duration of President Obama’s first term—it happened while Mandelbaum plugged away at earning his Finance degree, all the while hoping his path on the other side would be clear.

Healthcare is inexorably entangled in state and federal politics. Consequently, compassion and dedication to treating underserved populations is only half the battle. The other part involves understanding and getting in between the red tape that determines how resources get distributed to those in need. Dina Kupfer has always grasped this symbiosis implicitly. After graduating from Touro’s Lander College of Arts and Sciences with a psychology degree in 2009, the Brooklyn native coupled that with a Masters in Political Science from Brooklyn College. Today, she splits her time between the classroom—Kupfer is an adjunct professor in LAS’s Poli-Sci department—and legal work and government liaison for Yeled V’yalda, a Brooklyn-based social-services agency that assists children and their families.

One of the keys to academic success is time management, which bodes well for January ’14 LAS grad Chaya Spiegel. By the time this lifelong Brooklynite had graduated high school, she’d already written a historical mystery novel, Search for the Lost Children, and founded the Midwood Jewish Library in her home neighborhood. But she describes those pursuits as “more of a hobby, something I do to enjoy on the side.”
