Dear NYIT Student,

Welcome! Together, the students, faculty, and staff form the campus community, which reflects a variety of backgrounds and cultures.  We are very happy you have chosen NYIT and we look forward to learning about you, assisting you with your transition to college and helping to prepare you for life after graduation. 

Community Respect 

The quality of life on and off campus is best served by courteous and dignified interactions between all individuals.  Accordingly, we expect that the members of the campus community work to develop and maintain a high degree of respect and civility for the wealth of diversity on and around the campus. To ensure that this expectation is met, university policies have been designed to promote respect and civility.  Everyone is expected to conduct themselves in a manner that fosters mutual respect among all members of the campus community. For more information, check out our student handbook.

Developing Leaders

In addition to learning about your chosen academic discipline within the classroom, we encourage all NYIT students to become leaders on campus.   Join a club or organization or start your own!  NYIT students are bright, innovative and leaders in their respective communities.  Future employers want to see more than simply a strong GPA—they want to know that you have invested in your campus and can talk about the skills you developed in the process—consider getting involved today!  

Never Yield, Inspire Transformation 

Recently, we asked students to tell us what they thought the institution meant to them by using the letters “NYIT.”  There were so many creative answers, but one of our favorites is “Never Yield, Inspire Transformation.”  We believe this embodies the student experience at NYIT.  Our students are thoughtful and resilient, and they graduate as socially responsible leaders who are poised to succeed in their chosen field and serve their communities.   

NYIT is a special place and we look forward to welcoming you and family members into our global community. Please stop by our office in the Student Activity Center and say hello.  We are happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

Best wishes for a productive and creative year!

Sincerely,

Dr. Francy Magee, Dean of Campus Life, Old Westbury
