Dear NYU Community Members,

Welcome to one of our signature university-wide traditions -- NYU Ally Week. This important series of events, headed up by the Center for Multicultural Education and Programs and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Student Center, is now in its sixth year.

We are a vibrant community that values intellectual exchange, and is not afraid to approach complex topics. Indeed, it is through these sometimes difficult dialogues that we can best learn how to engage with people and ideas that are new to us, and to discover what connects us, as well as what distinguishes us.

I hope all of you will join in the opportunities throughout the week to learn and reflect, both individually and with other members of the NYU community. Together, we have the potential to achieve greater inclusion, equity, and justice here at NYU and far beyond.  

Become an NYU Ally.

Andrew Hamilton
