The budget discussion that follows focuses on the parts of New York University other than NYU Langone Health. The annual budget for the University apart from the NYU Langone Health totals $3.378 billion and includes all academic, auxiliary, and administrative units at NYU New York, NYU Abu Dhabi, the New York-based budget of NYU Shanghai, and all global program sites.

The University budget provides the financial framework for the University’s mission of teaching and research by balancing resources with needs and aspirations. The budget for fiscal 2019 includes funding for several major initiatives, some of which are a continuation from prior years: (1) Affordability – the third consecutive year of reductions to the rate of increase in tuition, fees, room, and board charges for entering freshmen; (2) Student Success – programs aimed at improving student retention and graduation rates; and (3) Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Work-Life, and Sustainability – continued investments in these key institutional priorities.. Operating budgets of the schools provide for several new academic initiatives, including a focus on Chemical Biology – an interdisciplinary field that seeks to identify molecular solutions to challenges in biology and medicine; start-up funding for new on-campus and online master’s and certificates programs; and continued growth in the College of Global Public Health and at the NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai portal campuses. Budgets for University-wide services will also provide for additional investments in campus safety and IT security, digital accessibility and compliance.

The fiscal 2019 capital budget incorporates funding for multiple projects, including the continued development of a new building at 181 Mercer Street (the site of the former Coles Sports and Recreation Center) – when completed, the new building will provide modern, high-quality space designed specifically to meet the University’s long-term academic, residential, and athletic needs; completion of a fully renovated building at 370 Jay Street (Brooklyn) – the new centerpiece of NYU’s applied science initiative at the intersection of media, technology, and the arts; and full renovation of a building located at 404 Lafayette/708 Broadway – the first permanent home of the College of Global Public Health.

NYU will continue to be vigilant to ensure the proper financial balance between needs and resources and to maintain academic excellence as our highest priority.
