On Sunday, October 22, the San Francisco Friends of UCU welcomed guests to a wonderful, inspiring evening. It was the fifth in-person banquet since starting this group in 2017.

Newly installed rector of UCU, Taras Dobko, shared an overview of the past year and his vision for the future. Yossi Feinberg, Professor of Management and Economics at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business introduced an exciting partnership with UCU called Stanford Ignite Ukraine.

Guests were treated to beautiful music from soprano Alina Ilchuk, pianist Peter Grunberg, and saxophonist Andrii Liesnyi. Our thanks to the University of San Francisco for once again providing the venue for this event, and for being great partners and supporters of UCU. Thanks to all who made the evening so special!
