Board of Overseers

As of March 2019

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 ethos. They must pay particularly close attention to the mission and the obligations to society that are unique to the academic enterprise. The board of overseers is responsible for creating policy, setting goals and purpose, strategic planning, and reviewing programs, among other functions. 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 who have come together to make this one of the world's premier engineering schools.
