Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging and Equity Initiatives

The Office of Student Affairs at Tandon is committed to supporting the diversity mission of New York University “to embrace diversity among faculty, staff and students to ensure a wide range of perspectives.” NYU Tandon students reflect the diversity of the world and we have a responsibility to provide and sustain a safe and affirming environment. Our office seeks to create spaces that promote social justice through open and considerate dialogue and where differences are embraced, valued and celebrated. To that end, students will find a variety of opportunities to participate in activities, programs and trainings that allow them to live, learn and grow as global citizens that contribute to the development of a better world.
