NYU Leadership Fellows

Explore, Empower and Build Leadership at NYU


Explore and Build Leadership

The NYU Leadership Fellows is a pilot program for 15 students from across the University who are passionate about leadership and have demonstrated a commitment to making a difference on campus, in a particular field, in their communities and in the world.

What do we believe?

We believe that leadership is more than having a formal title. Leadership requires working effectively with others to create a shared vision, build commitment and take action to produce results that make a difference.

NYU students demonstrate leadership in many different ways – moving group projects forward in class or at work; taking a stand for justice; encouraging dialogue across differences; participating in team sports; mentoring, coaching or being an ally to other students; serving as program ambassadors, Welcome Week, orientation or cohort leaders; serving in formal leadership roles or serving the greater community.

The Fellows will:

  • Explore frameworks for ethical and inclusive leadership;
  • Build a strong community of peers across the University who learn from each other’s experiences and share best practices;
  • Apply leadership skills, including active listening and collaboration, to work on a team challenge;
  • Establish and advance personal leadership goals;
  • Develop a reflective practice for continuous learning; and
  • Collaborate with the NYU Leadership Initiative to expand leadership learning and skill building to other students across NYU.
