Thank you to our fellow alums who have donated to Urban in the 2012-13 school year! We are delighted to share that we reached a NEW RECORD with more than 220 alums making gifts to the Annual Fund, Endowment and Class Funds. This is a wonderful demonstration to our current students and larger community of the value our alums place on an Urban education. Thank you for your support.

If you are interested in making a gift to Urban's 2013-14 Annual Fund please click here. For alums in the Classes of 2009 - 2013, click here to make or renew a gift to your Class Endowment Fund. Thank you!

The New York Times Book Review called it "a triumph of narrative reporting and storytelling, as well as a thorough and nuanced analysis of an American institution deeply in need of reform." To read more about this book and others check out her website.

Erin Berg ('08) and associates have founded Kipper Clothiers, a custom shirting and suiting business in San Francisco. Kipper Clothiers provides premium quality clothing and reliable customer service specifically aimed towards the LGBT community. To find out more go to their website:
