On January 6, 2021, a violent mob breached the U.S. Capitol, disrupting the work of Congress in certifying the election of President-elect Joe Biden. Read President Hamilton’s full response regarding the recent incidents.

In late December, President Hamilton shared his thoughts on the unprecedented events of 2020: NYU’s transition to remote instruction and relocation of day-to-day operations in the spring and summer, our reconvening on campus in the fall, and lessons learned from new ways of working and learning amid the pandemic. The president also highlighted some bright spots, including a record $289 million in research funding for NYU’s research enterprise and a notable increase in Early Decision applications for the Class of 2025. Read President Hamilton's recap, as well as the University’s outlook for the spring 2021 semester.

Much like the fall, the University will continue to emphasize strict adherence to safety and health measures on campus. For further guidance, please refer to the NYU Returns web hub for related messages from NYU leadership and COVID-19 information for community members.
