Board of Overseers

As leaders of a school responsible for educating the next generation of scientists and engineers, and for creating new knowledge, board members are the keepers of our mission. Educating qualified individuals from all walks of life to become the leaders of the local, national, and, now, international community. They must pay particularly close attention to the mission and the obligations to society that are unique to the academic enterprise. The board of trustees is responsible for, creating policy, setting mission and purpose, strategic planning, and reviewing programs, among other things. Chief among its roles is fundraising, as well as engaging our alumni, parent, and student communities.

The NYU Tandon School of Engineering's Board of Overseers is composed of great individuals that have come together to make this the world's premier engineering school.
