At NYU Steinhardt we believe that the successful professional -- in education, health, arts, or communication -- is one who has a global view and sees the connections among communities and cultures. Education is an instrument for positive change in our world and the means through which the quality of life for all people can be enhanced.
Our mission is to advance knowledge, creativity and innovation at the critical crossroads of human learning, culture, development and well-being. Through rigorous research and education, both within and across disciplines, our faculty and students evaluate and redefine processes, practices, and policies in their respective fields, and, from a global as well as community perspective, lead in an ever-changing world.
The breadth of professional programs we offer is unusual among schools of education. The innovation and sense of involvement we offer are truly unique.
