University Initiatives

New York University has grown into one of the nation's leading institutions of higher education, a dynamic and prominent research university that is "in and of the city" with an academic presence that spans the globe.

Universities are among the most enduring of human institutions.  They owe their longevity, in part, to their ability to reflect upon long range goals and their tradition of carefully and successfully balancing present considerations with future concerns. These initiatives will shape the University in ways that will permit following generations of scholars, students, administrators, and staff to carry the University further still.
