Senior Policy Fellows Stamato and Jaffe Fund Research Fellowship at RU-Newark

July 15, 2022

Senior Policy Fellows Sandy Jaffe NCAS’54 and Linda Stamato DC’62, GSNB’77 have teamed up to invest in a program that values student potential and life experience over GPAs: the Honors Living-Learning Community (HLLC). HLLC is a transformational college access program that broadens pathways by identifying and cultivating the untapped talent in our nation’s increasingly diverse new generations. It is focused on providing continued opportunity and prosperity for all, including those who have been systematically disenfranchised by systems of inequality. More than half of the HLLC students are from Newark, and many are children of immigrants and the first in their families to attend college.

Linda and Sandy are co-founders of the Rutgers Center for Negotiation and Conflict Resolution, now housed within the Bloustein School’s New Jersey Policy Lab.
