Board of Trustees
For over 20 years, ASA has been proud to support and promote the importance of education to the NYC community, with a special focus on historically under-served students (single mothers, working students, etc.). ASA strongly believes that higher education should be possible for everyone. By providing students with flexible schedules, strong academic and student support, and lifetime job placement assistance, we help ensure that their futures will be successful.
ASA's Department of Government and Community Relations, plays a major role in building lasting relationships with various community organizations, as well as elected officials to help reach communities that can grow through higher education. The department also works closely with the Board of Trustees.
