“NYU in DC” Is Important Step in Creating a Global Network University; Donors Milstein and Abramson to Be Recognized
NYU will today break ground on the Constance Milstein and Family Academic Center, home to NYU in DC and NYU’s first “Study Away” site in the U.S. It will provide classrooms and housing to permit students to study for a semester or more in Washington. In addition, it will provide a base for faculty research, graduate education, student internships, and the Brademas Center for the Study of Congress, among other offices.

The NYU in DC program is NYU’s first “Study Away” (rather than Study Abroad) site in the US; other sites include Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Madrid, Paris, Prague, Shanghai, and Tel Aviv, with programs also under development in Abu Dhabi and Sydney.
NYU--one of the largest private universities in the U.S. and a member of the selective Association of American Universities--sends more students to study abroad than any other U.S. university, and it has one of the largest groups of international scholars and students in the U.S.
NYU--with a major new liberal arts campus in Abu Dhabi, 10 existing “Study Away” centers, and three more (including NYU in DC) under development--is emerging as the world’s first Global Network University.
