Our goal as a university is to create a safe and secure environment where students feel comfortable learning, creating, and growing. Even though New York City is one of the safest cities in the country, we are dedicated to providing additional safety and support for our students, faculty, and staff.
Our community is inclusive of race, ethnicity, national origin, culture, language, gender and gender expression, sexuality, religious beliefs, political beliefs, age, and ability. We stand against all forms of discrimination and oppression, whether directed against individuals or groups.
