As the only Governor in Washington, D.C. on 9/11, he led the Fed’s initial response to the terrorist attacks, taking actions that kept the U.S. financial system functioning while reassuring the global financial community that the U.S. economy would not be paralyzed.

Prior to joining TIAA-CREF in April 2008, Mr. Ferguson was head of financial services for Swiss Re, Chairman of Swiss Re America Holding Corporation, and a member of the company’s executive committee. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences and a member of the Academy’s Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Contact:  Morgan Stanley Media Relations - Lauren Bellmare  212-761-5303

Morgan Stanley’s signature pro bono volunteer program brings together some of our
best talent to collaborate on solving nonprofits’ critical issues

NEW YORK, April 8, 2013 – Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) announced today that the following 12 nonprofit organizations will participate in the sixth annual Strategy Challenge, the Firm’s signature skills-based volunteer program providing nonprofits with pro bono strategic consulting.

· American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
· Catholic Guardian Services
· Children of Promise, NYC
· Day One NYC
· Good Shepherd Services
· Greenwich House
· Hamilton Family Center
· International Rescue Committee
· Metropolitan College of New York

The Strategy Challenge pairs each of these nonprofit organizations with a team of four Morgan Stanley employees for eight weeks.

Over the course of the project, employees partner with nonprofits to develop a solution that helps the nonprofits fulfill their missions in more effective and efficient ways.

The 12 nonprofits work on causes ranging from preventing suicide, to reducing domestic violence, to breaking the cycle for children with an incarcerated parent. Participating organizations are based in New York and San Francisco.

“We place the utmost value on the essential support that nonprofits provide in local communities.  These organizations diligently serve their constituents but often have limited expertise or resources to truly maximize their impact and reach scale,” said Joan Steinberg, Head of Morgan Stanley Community Affairs and President of the Morgan Stanley Foundation. “Our employees are equipped with the business and management skills that can help nonprofits overcome strategic 2 challenges and we as a firm appreciate the opportunity to impact the communities where we live and work through this program.”

Since establishing the Strategy Challenge in 2009, Morgan Stanley has delivered 32,500 hours of pro bono services to 61 nonprofits, worth approximately $4.9 million, according to standards developed by the Taproot Foundation. The Strategy Challenge is a joint effort between Morgan Stanley’s offices of Community Affairs and Global Sustainable Finance.

“The Strategy Challenge draws on Morgan Stanley’s expertise in solving complex problems and creating long-term value – in the work we do for our clients and in our communities,” said Audrey Choi, Head of Global Sustainable Finance at Morgan Stanley. “This signature initiative applies the firm’s strength in delivering client-centric solutions and provides participating nonprofits with tailored recommendations that help them more effectively deliver on their missions. “

The Morgan Stanley volunteers will present their recommendations for the nonprofits at a competition in June before experts from the private and nonprofit sectors.  For more information on the Strategy Challenge, please visit

METROPOLITAN COLLEGE OF NEW YORK CELEBRATES 50th ANNIVERSARY YEAR

Year-Long Celebration to Mark Decades of Amplifying Dreams

NEW YORK, NY – March 25, 2014 – This year, Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) celebrates its 50th anniversary and its remarkable transformation from the Women’s Talent Corps into an institution of higher learning.  Themed “Amplify the Dream,” the celebratory activities kicked off during March, Women’s History Month, and will continue throughout the year with a series of special events leading to the 50th Anniversary Gala this fall.

“Launching the 50th anniversary celebration this month was befitting of the college’s early development as a training institution for women,” explains Vinton Thompson, President of the Metropolitan College of New York. “We were founded by educational visionary Audrey Cohen to provide women with an opportunity for personal and professional advancement.”

The schedule of 2014 events at the Manhattan and Bronx campuses includes panel discussions as part of the college’s popular Urban Dialogue Series, the 5th Annual Short Film Festival and MCNY Family Day at Coney Island’s Luna Park.  This milestone year culminates with the “Amplify the Dream” 50th Anniversary Gala, on October 23rd at The Plaza Hotel in New York City.

Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) was founded during the turbulence and idealism of the 1960s, to offer underserved working adults of New York City access to life-changing education.  The College is a leader in tying academics to real world applications and is distinguished by its focus on equipping students to create positive change in their workplace and communities.

With President Lyndon B. Johnson’s declaration of a War on Poverty, in 1964 the U.S. Congress passed the Economic Opportunity Act to administer federal funds targeted against poverty.  The Women’s Talent Corps received funding from the Office of Economic Opportunity to train low-income women to work in their own communities.  In fact, through this funding, students were paid to attend training and to work in the community.

It was in 1970, that the Talent Corps expanded its programs and became the College for Human Services.   Thousands of men and women graduated with degrees in human services and set out with the passion and determination to change the world.  In 1992, recognizing that the term human services had become narrower in focus while the College’s programs had expanded, and in honor of Audrey Cohen’s leadership and innovative approach to education, it became Audrey Cohen College. 

Renamed Metropolitan College of New York in 2002, MCNY offers graduate and undergraduate programs in human services, public administration, business, education, and emergency management.  In addition to the lower Manhattan campus, the college has a Bronx extension serving students in the Bronx, Harlem and lower Westchester.

“We are excited to celebrate this milestone in MCNY history and welcome everyone to join in on the 50th anniversary festivities,” Thompson added.  For a complete list of events please visit www.mcny.edu/amplify. For more information on MCNY, visit www.mcny.edu or call 800.33.THINK.
