New York Life & The American College

New York Life and The American College both share the same commitment and dedication to the education and development of professionals in our industry. The American College is constantly working to enhance its curriculum so that its course work provides the most up-to-date thinking in terms of best practices, incorporates new legislation and regulations, and ensures that the highest standards of integrity are instilled in those studying at the College.

The College and New York Life partnered to create the New York Life Center for Retirement Income and a PhD program in financial and retirement planning, the only degree of its kind — anywhere. These initiatives will prepare successful financial practitioners to move beyond the practice of retirement planning and financial decision–making to the research and theory behind those decisions.

The President's Circle Campaign

For the College to continue to fulfill its mission, it needs the help of all of us. The President's Circle campaign is vital to The College's vision for educating financial advisors in the 21st century. Our gifts help The College:

  • Deliver high quality education to financial professionals; and
  • Keep us current with new legislation and regulations;

The total commitment to join the President's Circle is $1,500. However, the New York Life Foundation's matching gift program makes it possible to become a President's Circle member with a personal contribution of $750. Subject to the guidelines of the program, the matching gift provides the additional $750 necessary to reach the total giving level required.

Please consider joining the President's Circle and help ensure that The American College continues to provide the educational programs that help us serve our clients' financial needs. To make giving even easier, you can click on this Secure Link to make your donation.
