In 1831, NYU’s founders set out to create a new kind of university, one that matched New York City’s growing demands and demographics; a university that was different by design. Today, no other university engages the world like NYU does, with our own campuses, faculty members, students, and staff generating knowledge and discoveries in intellectual hubs around the globe. Continuing a legacy of global engagement and scholarship, we’re proud to foster a university-wide culture of access, equity, and inclusion.

The Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation (OGI) provides expert consultation, resources, and innovative strategies to help guide the university toward a more inclusive future. We are committed to helping students, faculty, staff, and alums discover and engage with a holistic range of resources at NYU. In addition to our centers and communities, OGI is part of a broad spectrum of programs and services that span across the following partners at the university level, with additional resources housed within NYU schools, including:
