NYU’s commitment to building and strengthening a university-wide culture of diversity, inclusion, and equity has led to the creation of the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation. As part of the Office of the President, the Office of Global Inclusion provides expert consultation, resources, and innovative strategies to help guide the University—and its uniquely global and diverse student, faculty, staff, administration, and alumni communities—toward a more inclusive future.

A Statement from Dr. Lisa M. Coleman on Protests and Anti-Black Racism

Dear NYU Community Members, 
We hope everyone is continuing to take good care of themselves, colleagues, and loved ones during these challenging times. We are all very aware of the ongoing media coverage highlighting the recent deaths and violence rooted in racism and anti-Blackness that have reemerged during the COVID-19 pandemic; and we also know that such oppression is not new, nor surprising; it is ongoing, deeply rooted historically, and woven into many of our collective systems and practices. The violence, degradation, and genocide faced by Black people is simply a fact of daily life for so many of us, and is epitomized in the tragic deaths of individuals including, but not limited to:

Tony McDade, Nina Pop, Breonna Taylor, Botham Shem Jean, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Philando Castile, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Akai Gurley, Oscar Grant, Laquan McDonald, Tulsa 1921, Sean Bell, Amadou Diallo, Jordan Davis, Walter Scott, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Alton Sterling, Stephon Clark, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, David McAtee, Emmett Till and countless others.

In community,
