Sometimes, what goes around does come around—in the best sense of that expression. In 2009, Yosef Brown graduated from Lander College of Arts and Science with a BA in Political Science. His previous concentration had been marketing, and while attending a campus job fair, the St. Louis native-cum-Long Island resident landed an interview with his current employer, online-advertising firm Blue Cherry Group, where he’s a senior manager. So when the time came for Brown to be on the other side of that table at a Touro recruitment event earlier this year, he assisted in the hiring of a fellow TC alum. “I felt like I was sort of doing my due diligence by helping another Touro graduate get a job when Touro helped me do the same,” he explains. “That was an important experience.”

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.
