The Leadership Initiative helps students discover and develop their superpowers.

By reflecting on their experiences, building a network of feedback and support, and engaging deeply in activities that matter to them, our students discover how their strengths and story have the power to inspire action.


Our Vision

Founded in 2013, the NYU Leadership Initiative prepares students to embrace challenges as opportunities to become active changemakers in their careers and communities.

Who We Serve

We serve all NYU students, in particular those who desire to serve others by engaging with communities both within and outside the university.

Our times call for a new approach to leadership, one that embraces the strengths and perspectives of all kinds of people- including those who do not conform to
traditional leadership models. We need all voices at the table from across
disciplines, lived experiences and backgrounds. This is why inclusive leadership is
fundamental to everything we do.
