Parent Involvement

Student and Parent

Parents' Council

The NYU Parents' Council is an important facet of the University's ongoing efforts to build and strengthen our relationships with the greater NYU community. The Council is comprised of parents of undergraduate students from each of the undergraduate schools.

The Council meets once each semester and also co-hosts the President's Reception on Parent's Day for freshmen and transfer students, and a number of members host Freshmen Send-offs in their home during the summer. At the fall and spring meetings, the council meets with a senior University administrator and has the opportunity to dialogue about critical topics that impact on student life.

NYU Momentum Campaign

NYU is thankful for our donors’ commitment to our academic mission. We recognize and honor the generosity of faculty, alumni, parents, friends, corporations, and foundations through acknowledgments, annual reporting, naming opportunities, and invitations to special events.

Parents Day

Held annually in the Fall for the parents of new freshmen and transfer students, Parents Day features a variety of academic and extra-curricular activities and programs designed to introduce parents to academic and student life at NYU. It is also a great opportunity to visit with your son or daughter and explore the city. If you prefer, we also invite you to make the day your own, participating in what your schedule will allow.
