Updates for Faculty & Staff

New Faculty and Students Join NYIT

Sep 04 2013

New faculty members in each of NYIT's seven schools and colleges enjoyed a daylong orientation on Aug. 27 in Old Westbury, N.Y. They conversed with second- and third-year NYIT faculty members, gained insight into applying for internal and external grants, and learned about NYIT's mentoring program. 

In addition, students comprising NYIT's Class of 2017 kicked off the fall 2013 semester with a new student welcome on Sept. 3. View pictures of their activities on NYIT's Facebook page.
