To help NYU community members better understand  our evolving public health guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NYU established the Public Health Ambassadors program.  This cohort of trained and dedicated students shares information and dispenses face coverings at NYU locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn to help keep our campus safe.

NYU’s Public Health Ambassadors are committed to doing the following:

  • Encourage behavior by being visible and positive role models
  • Answer questions about public health guidelines and share resources when appropriate
  • Offer masks to community members
  • Notice needs and patterns on campus so NYU staff members can better understand (and respond to) public health needs
