This semester, more than 300 students have stepped forward to serve as NYU's first Public Health Ambassadors—our very own COVID-safety superheroes. You'll find them on campus answering questions, distributing masks and hand sanitizer, and to visibly modeling the kind of behavior we expect of all members of our community.
