Institutional Statement


"Following a thorough, five-month review process, and in line with the guidance of NYU’s collaborative Recommendation Committee (which included students, faculty, and staff representatives), the University is set to begin negotiations with Chartwells, a division of Compass Group, to become NYU's new dining services provider.

"As we still have to negotiate the contract, we will limit our comments. However, among the priorities that we will be looking to address during the course of the negotiations will be continuity of dining staff, affordability issues, responding to issues of food insecurity, and reducing food waste and improving sustainability.

"If the negotiations are successful, our expectation is that Chartwells would take over as NYU's food service provider as of July 1, 2019."
