Since its founding in 1831, NYU has been an innovator in higher education, reaching out to an emerging middle class, embracing an urban identity and professional focus, and promoting a global vision that informs its 21 schools and colleges and centers and institutions. Today, that trailblazing spirit makes NYU one of the most prominent and respected research universities in the world, featuring top-ranked academic programs and accepting fewer than one in eight undergraduates.

Anchored in New York City and with degree-granting campuses in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai as well as 12 study away sites throughout the world, NYU is a leader in global education, with more international students and more students studying abroad than any other U.S. university. NYU takes seriously its role as an engine of social mobility, and stands out among the top U.S. universities in its representation of low-income and first-generation students within its community.

To support this mission, Global and Institutional Engagement (GIE) serves as the central university ambassador to corporate philanthropies, foundations, other non-governmental philanthropic organizations, and international donors. Our Institutional Engagement Officers connect foundation and corporate philanthropies with opportunities to support NYU faculty and initiatives, and the Global Engagement Officers connect international philanthropists with areas of impact at NYU that align with their interests and goals.
