President's Global Council

As the world’s first global network university, NYU is spearheading a bold paradigm shift in higher education. The President’s Global Council was created to act as an advisory body to the president of NYU to help the University realize its global vision. The Council’s membership includes world citizens who are experts in international business, finance, law, technology, real estate, media, public service, the arts, and other industries. The Council roster below clearly reflects the diversity and breadth of experience of the participants, whose input and guidance are of enormous benefit as we address the challenges and opportunities that emerge as NYU builds its global presence.

The President’s Global Council meets twice a year—once in New York City and once in another city within NYU’s global network. The inaugural meeting took place in New York City in October 2013, with subsequent meetings in London, Abu Dhabi, and New York. Each meeting demonstrated the enormous potential the Council has in influencing the course of NYU’s global development.
