January 15, 2016
Sought-After: Here are more reasons we're #VioletProud.
It is believed that in 2015, more students applied to New York University than to any other private college or university in America.

What do you have planned for 2016: Change jobs? Become more involved? Meet new people? Start by joining the NYU Alumni Association's official LinkedIn group.

We invite you to join more than 14,000 of your fellow alumni in this group for networking and career building, offered exclusively to you and your fellow NYU alumni.
Conversations on Racial Diversity & Equity at NYU
Over the past year, racial diversity, equity, and inclusion on college campuses across the United States have been central in the national headlines. As NYU continues to make positive strides in these areas, the alumni community is often left unaware of the ways that the University is supporting its diverse community. This program is meant to be an update for a cross-section of alumni to hear firsthand from administrators, students, and fellow alumni on the many ways the University is supporting its underrepresented communities.
Mahe Dewan (TANDON ’17): For the donors who make my education possible, thank you for ensuring my future and for making sure that I become a helpful part of the global technology community.
