Conference Sessions

Keynote Address

Jacques SteinbergThis year’s keynote speaker will be Jacques Steinberg. Steinberg is the author of “The Gatekeepers: Inside the Admissions Process of a Premier College,” a New York Times Best Seller and Times Notable Book first published in 2002. In commemoration of its 20th printing, the book was reissued in Fall 2012 with a new Afterword by the author. Steinberg was a journalist for the New York Times for nearly 25 years, most recently as its Senior Editor for Education Initiatives. He left The Times in 2013 to join the senior leadership team at Say Yes to Education. It is a national non-profit organization based in New York City that seeks to organize and galvanize entire cities around the goals of making higher education accessible and affordable for all public high school graduates, especially those from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented on college and university campuses.
