Parents Council

THE NYU PARENTS COUNCIL is an important part of the University's efforts to build and strengthen relationships across the entire NYU community. The Council meets with the University administration to discuss critical topics that impact student life. Members also have opportunities to socialize and network with fellow parents, alumni, and University leaders.

Our Mission

  • To increase philanthropic support for NYU
  • To offer feedback and inform University leadership from a parent's perspective
  • To welcome new parents to the University through New Student Send-offs, the President's Reception, Parents Council events, and regional events

Members Support the University at a Leadership Level

  • Serve as ambassadors for the University
  • Assist the University in building partnerships
  • Participate in meetings and other NYU activities

Giving

A minimum gift of $5,000 to any program or fund at NYU qualifies for a 12-month membership from the date of the gift.

Just because our children have gone off to College, it does not mean we need to completely lose the type of connection we had to their schools back home. By joining the Parents Council, we get to interact with other parents, faculty, and administrators. As members of the Council, we can channel our passion and enthusiasm for the University in a way that truly benefits all students at NYU.
