A Commitment to Diversity, Inclusivity, and Global Understanding

The United States has just been through a contentious election that has raised many issues of concern across the political spectrum for people and communities throughout the nation. To those of you from around the country and the world who are considering coming to New York City to study with us at NYU Steinhardt, I want to reassure you that you will be welcomed as a valued and respected member of our scholarly and artistic community.

Here at NYU we are a community of higher learning that values diversity, inclusivity, and a global perspective. As NYU President Andrew Hamilton has so clearly stated, we proudly embrace our belief in evidence-based, rational discourse, free speech, vigorous debate, and the importance of global understanding and unity.

Equity, diversity, and advocacy are in the Steinhardt School’s DNA; they have been the culture of our school since our founding in 1890. At NYU Steinhardt, so much of our work, individually and together, is about finding creative solutions to our most pressing social problems and bringing about positive change. That work is more important than ever.

Today NYU enrolls the largest number of international students and sends more students to study abroad than any other college or university in the United States. We welcome all students, regardless of ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, disability, religion, ideology, or national origin who seek to further their knowledge and gain the skills they need to be successful in their careers.

I invite you to learn more about NYU Steinhardt and our community, and to contact our Office of Graduate Admissions at 212-998-5030 or steinhardt.gradadmissions@nyu.edu if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Dominic Brewer
Gale and Ira Drukier Dean, NYU Steinhardt
