World of Tomorrow

YU and the World of Tomorrow

We live in a rapidly changing world. Science, medicine, and technology are progressing at an unparalleled pace, while shifting notions of personal identity, gender roles, education and family are creating new social realities. This presents daunting challenges, but also extraordinary opportunities for humanity. Armed with a three-thousand-year-old tradition of wisdom, Yeshiva University’s role is to guide our students and broader society in seizing these opportunities and transforming our world of tomorrow for the better. As part of the investiture year, on Sunday, October 22, Yeshiva University will host a conference that will explore four primary areas central to this effort moving forward:
