NYU alumni clubs are created and run by alumni volunteers who wish to reconnect with New York University and with fellow alumni in their region or through shared interests. In 2003, recently appointed NYU President John Sexton made a special trip to Miami to inaugurate the NYU Alumni Club of South Florida. Ten years later, the club, which represents Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties, is NYU’s oldest—and one of its most active—alumni clubs.
