As each academic year comes to a close, one of the ways in which we assess the success of our work is by reflecting on the accomplishments and impact we had on students during the year. We are extremely proud of the diverse group of students that graduated from one of our academic programs this past year. A total of 273 students representing 23 countries and several different academic disciplines earned an LLM, master’s degree, or certificate (either graduate or undergraduate) from Straus during this past academic year.
