You belong here. You are NYU Stern.


The Undergraduate, Graduate & Administrative communities are committed to creating an environment that thrives on open dialogue and welcomes all identities, voices and views.

We support each other and foster a community where everyone can grow and excel. Building a community that embraces Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging, and Equity (IDBE) is a top priority at NYU Stern.

We have identified three key areas for our continued focus:
(1) Educating and updating our community
(2) Providing support to and ensuring representation within our community
(3) Monitoring policies and processes.

Our ongoing efforts are the result of collaborations across offices, groups, faculty, staff, and students throughout our community, including NYU’s Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation.
