We at NYU are grateful to have a community of administrators and staff who have been willing to adapt to the rapidly changing and genuinely challenging circumstances of the COVID-19 epidemic. It has demanded that we alter the way we conduct our academic and business operations at NYU in an incredibly short period of time.

In our response to the coronavius, NYU is committed to mitigating those impacts as well as ensuring no one in our community is ostracized, bullied, or mistreated due to ignorance about this disease.

If any member of our community believes they have experienced harassment or discrimination, we encourage them to report concerns to the Bias Response Line.
