The NYU Parents' Council is an important facet of the School's ongoing efforts to build and strengthen our relationships within the Stern community and the greater University community.

The Council meets once each semester, co-hosts the Dean's Reception at Parents Day, and welcomes incoming students at Freshman Send-offs around the world during the summer.

Members support the School philanthropically, provide guidance on engaging parents, and play important roles as Stern volunteers. Council members are also encouraged to host occasional events, identify ways to engage other parents, and provide leadership and support to help increase participation in the Parents' Fund.

If you have any questions about the Council, please contact Natalie Kresen at (212) 998-0496 or
