Excellence through Commitment

The diverse, multicultural community at NYU—the largest private university in the United States and one of the 10 largest employers in New York City—includes more than 12,000 faculty, administrators, and staff from all over the world and over 50,000 students from all 50 states and more than 140 foreign countries.

The commitment of this community to improve the University is extraordinary and can be clearly seen in recent accomplishments and undertakings. As you look around NYU, you will see an astonishing array of programs, with new international centers of study and research institutes supported by brand new facilities, including new classrooms, laboratories, computer centers, sports centers, student housing, and dining facilities.

NYU is composed of 14 schools and colleges, which are: Arts & Science; College of Dentistry; College of Nursing; Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences; Gallatin School of Individualized Study; Institute of Fine Arts; Institute for the Study of the Ancient World; Leonard N. Stern School of Business; Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service; School of Continuing and Professional Studies; School of Law; Silver School of Social Work; The Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development; and Tisch School of the Arts. Although overall the University is large, the divisions are small- to moderate-sized units—each with its own traditions, programs, and faculty.

NYU has expanded from New York, the world's largest capital city, by establishing significant New York University Centers in cities around the world, including Abu Dhabi, Accra (Ghana), Berlin, Buenos Aires (under development), Florence, London, Madrid, Paris, Prague, Shanghai, and Tel Aviv (under development). By locating new campuses in "idea capitals" worldwide, NYU is creating opportunities to have an impact on a truly global level.

NYU's talented, creative, and innovative workforce is dedicated to advancing the University's position as one of the finest global research institutions in the world. Faculty members secure important grants for research and win top scholarly honors and awards from within the University and at the national and international levels.

The faculty and alumni of NYU count among them 32 Nobel Prize winners; 9 National Medal of Science recipients; 12 Pulitzer Prize winners; 171 Guggenheim Fellow awardees; 18 MacArthur Foundation awardees; numerous Emmy, Grammy, and Tony award winners; and more Academy Award winners than any other school in the country.


Excellence through an Enriching Environment

NYU is a place to grow and excel in your career while being part of a dynamic and stimulating intellectual community. From seminars and lectures to theatre productions, films, musical performances, sporting events, and gallery openings, there are many diverse opportunities to participate in the cultural life of the University.

The keystone of this enriching environment is NYU's Washington Square campus in New York City's Greenwich Village, a legendary urban neighborhood rich in cultural offerings, with a delightful small-town character quite unlike any other. Generations of writers, artists, musicians, and scholars, from Henry James to Jack Kerouac, have called Greenwich Village home. It's also a place where you can find sidewalk cafés, world-class galleries, and off-Broadway theatres—all of which add up to the energy and creativity of the village.


Excellence through Diverse Resources

As an employee, you will enjoy access to NYU's many facilities (art galleries, bookstores, health clinics, libraries, and sports centers), employee privileges and discounts (dining facilities, tickets to on- and off-campus events, and neighborhood businesses), and LiveSmart initiatives, NYU's wellness program.


Excellence through Learning and Development

NYU offers outstanding professional development and career-related programs. The Office of Talent, Learning, and Organizational Development provides opportunities for NYU employees to improve their skills through timely and relevant skill-building programs to improve organizational performance and promote professional growth. Additionally, employees are able to take advantage of tuition benefits to further their educational growth.


Excellence through Benefits and Compensation

NYU strives to provide a work environment that promotes innovation and rewards performance. To accomplish this goal, the University provides a comprehensive benefits and compensation program that is designed to meet the diverse needs of our employees and compares very favorably with those of other top-ranking research universities.
