Steven Dupré

Director of Inclusion & Diversity, PGIM


 “As an alumnus, I am particularly excited to join the CUNY SPS Foundation Board and contribute to the ongoing success of the School and its mission to provide a premier educational experience for students across a wide array of degree programs and disciplines.”

“For many CUNY SPS students, a return to academia and the online classroom format represents an opportunity to knock down personal and professional barriers that are both real and imagined. For me, the decision to enroll at CUNY SPS signaled that I had arrived at a significant career inflection point, and the incredible growth I have experienced since graduating can be traced back to this single decision.”
