The New School 2019 Commencement Ceremony (newschool.edu/commencement) took place on Friday, May 17 in the Arthur Ashe Stadium, at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, in Flushing Meadows―Corona Park, Queens.
Robert Mundheim feels a deep connection to The New School's University in Exile through his experience as a refugee from Nazi Europe in the early 20th century. He has served in the U.S. Air Force; as general counsel in the U.S. Treasury Department, where, in 1981, he played a substantial role in negotiating the release of U.S. hostages in Iran; and as dean of the School of Law at the University of Pennsylvania from 1982 to 1989. Since 1999, he has been of counsel to Shearman & Sterling, where he began his career in the late 1950s. He continues to make invaluable contributions to the university as a trustee and member of the Board of Governors of The New School for Social Research.
Use #NewSchoolGrad to congratulate the class of 2019.
