The NYU Office of Alumni Relations and NYU Alumni Association are postponing, converting to online programming, or cancelling all in-person events scheduled between now and April 19. While in-person events and programming are important ways to keep our network strong and active, we feel it prudent to exercise an abundance of caution at this time. The safety of our alumni, parents, students, and friends remains a top priority for the University.
See below for more information about online events, webinars, and ways to stay connected with your fellow alumni digitally during this time; and update your preferences to hear about more digital programming as it’s announced in the coming weeks.
Just because you graduated, doesn't mean you stopped learning. As part of the NYU alumni community, you have exclusive access to a range of webinars and online events. Upcoming webinars include Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, Humor that Works: The Missing Skill for Success and Happiness at Work, and Couples That Work: How Dual-Career Couples Can Thrive in Love and Work.
The NYU Alumni Club in Shanghai has kicked off a new series of online events with their Online Distinguished Alumni Speaker Series, and other NYU Alumni Clubs are actively working on online events and webinars to connect and engage their local communities.
If you haven’t yet, join the official NYU Alumni Association group on LinkedIn. Exclusive to NYU alumni, this is your go-to online resource for NYU news, career events, and opportunities to connect with thousands of alumni across industries.
