NYU’s commitment to building and strengthening a university-wide culture of diversity, inclusion, and equity led to the creation of the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation. As part of the Office of the President, the Office of Global Inclusion provides expert consultation, resources, and innovative strategies to help guide the University—and its uniquely global and diverse student, faculty, staff, administration, and alumni communities—toward a more inclusive future.

Addressing Surges in Anti-Asian Racism - a message from OGI

Dear NYU Community,

Given recent occurrences and instances of ongoing xenophobia and racism directed toward members of Asian & Pacific Islander (API) communities, we are writing to ensure you and members of your NYU communities are aware of some upcoming programming, resources, and updates, as well as some recent legislation.

Before sharing more, in case you are not aware, February 12, 2021, was the beginning of the Lunar New Year - the Year of the Ox; we hope everyone continues to take good care as this new cycle begins. Please take a moment to review this celebration that took place at NYU Shanghai to celebrate the Lunar New Year, along with this video message from NYU-Shanghai.

Reflections on NYU MLK Week and the Start of Black History Month from Dr. Lisa Coleman (02/01/2021)

Dear Members of the NYU Community,

I am wishing you a successful start to the Spring 2021 Semester, and as always, I hope that you and your loved ones continue to take care as we navigate today, and what lies ahead. February 1st, 2021 is the start of NYU’s 16th Annual MLK Week commemoration during which we hope you will join us for some unique events and collective learning opportunities. It is also the beginning of what has been designated as Black History Month. As I prepared for this week and month, I have been reflecting deeply on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this year’s MLK Week theme, “Chaos or Community?,” and all that we have and continue to confront across the globe. As we enter into these commemorations, I wanted to take some time to share thoughts about the chaos we have experienced, but also about community and our future together.
