In City Hall, Albany, and Washington DC, NYU works with lawmakers and government agencies on policy issues surrounding the advancement of higher education. The Office of Government Affairs facilitates many of these interactions.
NYU students, faculty, and administrators are instrumental advocates for higher education policies, including financial aid and expanding research funding. The Office of Government Affairs facilities meetings between NYU constituents and their legislative representatives.
Government Affairs helps secure local, state, and federal funding for NYU initiatives that address real-world needs throughout the city, state, country, and world.
NYU generates billions of dollars in direct and indirect economic activity as one of the City’s largest employers, a nexus for tens of thousands of students and scholars, and a hub for research and innovation.
Government Affairs brings students, faculty, and alumni face-to-face with their representatives in government. Government Affairs also tracks and reports NYU's interactions with elected officials, ensuring compliance with lobbying laws.
