The Business Council strongly believes that a talented and educated workforce is vital to our region’s economic development. Westchester County is fortunate to have its share of excellent colleges and universities. One of the county’s prized institutions is Fordham Westchester, which celebrated its 40th anniversary this week with a reception at its West Harrison campus. This week Fordham Westchester also celebrated Fordham University’s 175th anniversary and the 100th anniversary of its Graduate Schools of Social Service and Education. Among the guests were alumnus Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino and BCW president and CEO Marsha Gordon.
