Administrative Management Council


The Administrative Management Council (AMC) is the organization through which NYU administrators - management and professional personnel - participate in University governance. Representatives are elected from each school or division.

The AMC initiates, deliberates, and responds to the issues and concerns of its constituents and the University community. The AMC is committed to promoting the professional growth and development of NYU administrators, and it is deeply committed to community service.

Most of the AMC's work is accomplished in its standing and ad hoc committees. Committee membership, which is open to all NYU administrators, offers a wonderful way to become involved in the university community.

NYU Administrators have a rich history of service to the University and our community. All administrators are invited to participate -- whether an elected representative or not, whether returning or new -- at our Council and committee meetings and events throughout the year.
