Leadership Development

One of the goals of NYU Tandon is to teach students how to function effectively in teams, both as leaders and as members. Out-of-the-classroom experience plays a crucial part in the development of this skill. Therefore, students are invited and challenged to live out what they are learning in the classroom. Consider the following opportunities to gain real-world leadership and team work experience:

  • CATalyst: Tandon Leadership Lab Summit
  • Tandon Leadership Lab: Fall Series

Leadership Opportunities

NYU Tandon students have the opportunity to take on a variety of leadership roles. Student leaders are instrumental in enhancing the quality of campus life through co-curricular activities such as institutional governance, clubs, organizations, special committees, recreational and cultural endeavors, and the planning and production of special programs.
