The Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies at New York University was created in 1966 to foster the interdisciplinary study of the modern and contemporary Middle East and to enhance public understanding of the region. The Kevorkian Center’s activities focus on the histories, politics, economies, religions, cultures, and languages of the area stretching from North Africa to Central Asia.

The Taub Center for Israel Studies, established in 2003, is one of the few university-based research centers dedicated to the study of modern Israel and its recent history, society, and politics. The Taub Center supports lectures, seminars, scholarly colloquia, and other special programs for students, faculty, and the community. The Center was established with a gift from the Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation.
