The Office of Student Activities and Leadership Development (OSALD) is located on the second floor of the Student Activities Building at 1849 Broadway.

Students and staff actively provide and support services and programs that enhance the personal and leadership development of our NYIT community.

Activities in order to create a welcoming, respectful and supportive atmosphere to maintain a positive working environment for all NYIT students and staff.

Leadership is a continuous challenge. Students and staff promote an atmosphere that challenges prejudices and embraces diversity. We encourage the free expression of ideas and expect members of our community to be respectful to the rights of others that hold opposing views.

Development occurs through growth and continuously empowering students and staff by evaluating services and programs. Orientation is a service provided to help retain all new students and engage them in a global community.
