The Sy Syms Board’s Industry Committees

The Sy Syms Board of Overseers includes luminaries from across the major industries into which Sy Syms students are typically hired and several new industries into which they are making inroads. Those luminaries lead committees comprised of other all-stars from their industries. Each committee is tasked with achieving three goals: helping us strengthen the curriculum with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the industry, paving a better path to job opportunities in the industry, and figuring out how to involve YU alumni and friends of YU in these activities.
