Through Service We Remember & Honor

The events of 9/11 and the subsequent aftermath have significantly impacted individuals and communities on a local and global scale, the members of the NYU community included. Just as we came together on 9/11 in the spirit of service and reflection, NYU seeks to commemorate the event’s global impact through a series of service programs involving our New York City campus, under the theme “We Stand Together.”
