Jeffrey Engel

Jeffrey B. Engel '84 has come a long way since his student days, when he lived over the Pub, wrote fiction, served on the Student Senate, and challenged Vassar to a football game on Westlands Lawn. He's since gone on to a successful career on Wall Street and recently started a hedge fund that invests in commercial applications of blockchain technology.

Through it all, Sarah Lawrence has remained close to his heart. Jeffrey's taken every opportunity to connect with the College, from serving as president of the Alumni Association to mentoring students.

"I was raised to always give back," Jeffrey says. One way he did so was by including Sarah Lawrence in his estate plan.

"Sarah Lawrence shaped who I am and how I am," he says. For him, securing the long-term success of Sarah Lawrence "is the right thing to do if you care about a place."
