New York University’s mission is to be a top quality international center of scholarship, teaching and research. NYU seeks to take academic and cultural advantage of its location and to embrace diversity among faculty, staff and students to ensure a wide range of perspectives, including international perspectives, in the educational experience.
NYU students come from nearly every state and 133 countries, and the university draws upon the diverse backgrounds of our faculty, staff, and students, ensuring its scholarship and teaching benefit from a wide range of perspectives. NYU takes seriously its role as an engine of social mobility, and stands out among the top US universities in its representation of low-income and first-generation students within its community.
As part of NYU’s Office of the Provost, The NYU Entrepreneurial Institute is committed to modeling and building a robust culture of diversity, equity and inclusion among the NYU entrepreneurship community and more broadly in New York City. This commitment led to the creation of the Female Founders program in 2017 and the launch of numerous Inclusive Entrepreneurship Initiatives since then. These initiatives provide extensive programming, expert consultation, dedicated resources, and innovative strategies to help guide all of NYU’s uniquely global and diverse student, faculty and researcher community toward startup success and a more inclusive future.
