Parent Involvement

Parents' Council

The NYU Parents' Council is an important facet of the University's ongoing efforts to build and strengthen our relationships with the greater NYU community. The Council is comprised of parents of undergraduate students from each of the undergraduate schools.

The Council meets once each semester and also co-hosts the President's Reception on Parent's Day for freshmen and transfer students, and a number of members host Freshmen Send-offs in their home during the summer.
