NYU in Congress


The NYU Washington, DC alumni community and the Office of Government and Community Affairs held a holiday reception honoring alum Representative Rush Holt (PhD '81) for his dedicated career to public service.  Congressman Holt, who retired in 2014 from Congress, had assumed office in 1999, and has been a strong voice for his constituents and the nation.

Throughout his career, he has helped to develop a long-term strategy to decrease the nation's dependence on fossil fuels and to protect the environment for future generations. He has also worked to strengthen oversight of the intelligence community by ensuring that policymakers receive accurate assessments, civil liberties are safeguarded, and the intelligence community is protecting Americans.
