The Office of University Events is charged with planning and implementing all major university events. Its primary responsibilities are the All-University Commencement Exercises, Grad Alley, and NYU Welcome Day, organized annually in partnership with other University offices. University Events also plans academic convocations and unique-in-time events such as dedications of new facilities, presidential installations, academic symposia, and visits by dignitaries, at university campus locations in New York and abroad. In doing so, the office seeks to build community spirit and convey the university’s message, agenda, and image to both the internal and external audiences in the United States and around the world.
A University-wide partner, University Events provides logistical and event planning support to NYU schools and divisions. The office also manages an internal property rental system.
