Students of Color Welcome

The Center for Multicultural Education and Programs (CMEP) offers a vast array of educational and social events, programs, and resources that aim to engage, support, empower, and celebrate students of color and those of historically marginalized and excluded groups—throughout NYU’s global network and around the world. Everyone is welcome to join, learn, and connect; to deepen their networks and build bridges across groups. CMEP is part of a broad spectrum of programs and services dedicated to fostering belonging and inclusion. We are committed to helping all community members discover a holistic range of resources at NYU.
