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 meets once each semester, co-hosts the President's Reception at Parents Day, and welcomes incoming students at Freshman Send-offs around the world during the summer. At the fall and spring meetings, the Council meets with a senior University administrator to discuss critical topics affecting student life.

Members support their students' schools philanthropically, assist and advise the University in strategies for engaging parents, and play important roles as University volunteers. Council members are also encouraged to host occasional events, identify ways to engage other parents, and provide leadership and support to help increase participation in the Parents' Fund.

If you have any questions about the Parents' Council, please send an email to parents.council@nyu.edu or call 212-992-7625.
