At each of NYU's Global Academic Centers a staff member is selected to assist with all things related to identity, diversity, belonging, equity, inclusion, and accessibility at that site. Liaisons create programming, provide support to students, and connect them with appropriate local resources. Liaisons are engaged in ongoing training and dialogue with colleagues in NYU’s Office of Global Inclusion and the Division of Student Affairs to learn and understand how best to support students who are navigating their identities in a new culture. Students can contact liaisons to discuss IDBEA-related issues and receive information on how to get involved with IDBEA topics or student groups. Student who study away at one of the NYU degree campuses will find resources provided by on-site DEI offices/centers.
NYU ACCRA - Marian Ansa-Otu
IDBEA is important because it helps people feel a sense of belonging and makes things more accessible, helps to break stereotypes and builds a more inclusive society which is beneficial to everyone.

Practicing the important values of IDBEA in all aspects of our lives will ensure that we can find more just and sustainable solutions even to the toughest global challenges of our times.
NYU BUENOS AIRES - Paula Di Marzo
Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging and Equity is important because it is (or at least should be considered) a fundamental need in the daily life of every single person. When IDBEA is assured, people have the opportunity to give the best of themselves.
NYU FLORENCE - Mary Barbera & Nicoletta Peluffo
MARY BARBERA-- IDBEA is important for so many reasons but to summarize, IDBEA empowers people who have been historically disempowered; it forces all of us to become aware, empathic, reflective, and proactive but also continuously examine our own identities, position, privilege, and unconscious biases; and it draws people into spaces/communities that they may have otherwise avoided due to fear, hostility, or inaccessiblity; and it promotes/demands mutual respect, brave dialogue, and pro-action.
NICOLE PELUFFO -- IDBEA is empowering. It draws people into spaces/communities that they may have otherwise avoided due to fear, hostility, or inaccessiblity; and it promotes/demands mutual respect, brave dialogue, and pro-action.

NYU LOS ANGELES - Robin Gonsalves
Individuals are able to grow and develop to their greatest potential when cultivated in a community of acceptance, understanding, and ultimately belonging. Recognizing and embracing the various aspects of one's identity and how they contribute to the team member's unique perspective and power is vital to creating that culture of belonging.
NYU Madrid - Alejandro Pérez
NYU PARIS - Ahmed Nasri
IDBEA brings visibility to marginalized individuals, giving a voice to those who have long been disadvantaged, ensuring that everyone's perspectives and experiences are acknowledged, and granting self-advocacy to those who've been silenced.
NYU PRAGUE - Thea Favaloro
IDBEA is important for social justice and equity. Better outcomes come from more diverse, inclusive workplaces where people feel well treated. Universities should have staffing which is reflective of the students it serves.

IDBEA is fundamental to ensuring more equitable access to opportunities and representation. By championing diversity and belonging within our distinct learning environments we each have the opportunity to grow together and celebrate the success of our peers.
