Centers and Institutes

One of New York University's strengths is its vast array of institutes and centers that are not only an important part of the academic setting of the University, but are also a vital part of its cultural setting. From leading international centers for research and education, to one of the most technologically advanced lecture halls and screening facilities in New York City, the varied institutes and centers at NYU serve as critical points of convergence for the University experience.

Throughout the year, many of them offer lectures and seminars that are open to the entire University community allowing for enrichment in many different subjects.
