The NYU Alumni Association (NYUAA) is the umbrella organization for all University alumni from every NYU school. With a network of more than 600,000 NYU alumni worldwide, membership in the NYUAA begins upon graduation, is free for life, and includes an array of alumni benefits.

  • Supporting the Fund for NYU (annual giving)
  • Leading the NYUAA Debra LaMorte Scholarship Fund, the first-ever all-alumni effort to endow a permanent scholarship for future NYU alumni
  • Fostering leadership among alumni from all schools, regions, and constituencies
  • Engaging students as future alumni
  • Providing opportunities for lifelong learning for alumni
  • Recognizing alumni for accomplishments and service
  • Providing social and career networking for alumni
  • Supporting alumni organizations, regional groups, constituency groups, and students
  • Encouraging University-wide participation in NYU Alumni Association activities and events
  • Facilitating the sharing of ideas between school associations
  • Providing an avenue for feedback to the administration

The NYUAA is led by a volunteer Board of Directors, which includes representatives from all NYU schools. The NYUAA works collaboratively with the Office of Alumni Relations to advise and develop strategies towards the organizational mission and advancement of NYU and its alumni.
