The New York University Alumni Association

The NYU Alumni Association (NYUAA) is the umbrella organization for all University alumni. Its purpose is to build and sustain a lifelong relationship between the University and its alumni through the following activities:

  • Supporting the Fund for NYU (annual giving)
  • Fostering leadership among alumni from all schools, regions and constituencies
  • Engaging students as future alumni
  • Providing opportunities for lifelong learning for alumni
  • Recognizing alumni for accomplishments and service
  • Providing social and career networking for alumni
  • Supporting alumni organizations, regional groups, constituency groups and students
  • Encouraging participation of schools in NYU Alumni Association activities
  • Facilitating the sharing of ideas between school associations
  • Providing an avenue for feedback to the administration

The NYUAA's various committees allow alumni to focus their energy in areas that are helpful to the University. Through these committees, alumni actively work with the University on higher education issues related to city and state government and on community service. They work to link students and alumni through events like Freshman Orientation, the annual Student Leaders Dinner, and student-alumni mentoring events. Alumni also help to raise crucial fundraising dollars through the Fund for NYU. Recent alumni who remain in the New York area have opportunities to participate in social, cultural, career-related and community service activities through the Recent Alumni Network. For those alumni residing outside the metro area, NYU holds a series of regional events bringing NYU's president or faculty members to meet with alumni in other areas of the country.

To find out more about the NYU Alumni Association, please contact Amanda Putzer, Assistant Director, Alumni Affinity Programs, at or call the Office of Alumni Relations at (212) 998-6912.
