Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at New York Tech

At New York Institute of Technology, diversity is represented by a mosaic of unique individuals from a variety of racial, ethnic, religious, gender, gender presentation, sexuality, geographic, cultural, age, abilities, and socioeconomic groups. Each individual brings unique intellectual, artistic, and creative gifts to create a rich, vibrant campus community. New York Institute of Technology recognizes the strength that stems from a diversity of perspectives, values, ideas, backgrounds, styles, approaches, experiences, and beliefs. We aspire to continue to grow as a place that always welcomes and encourages individuals of all backgrounds to contribute to and be part of the university culture.

In support of these principles and goals, New York Tech established the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity (DEI) Task Force in February 2018 with a mission to develop strategies that advance the institution’s efforts to welcome diversity, foster equity, and promote a culture of inclusion that offers all community members access to a meaningful teaching, learning, and working environment. In October 2022, the DEI Task Force was replaced by a staffed Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEI&B) and an additional DEI Advisory Group and DEI Committee.

Our university’s signature strengths lie in the diversity of our student body and our dynamic mix of academic and professional staff members who provide community members from all walks of life and an inclusive teaching, learning, and working environment with equal access to professional and personal success throughout their lives.

Feedback from the university community is encouraged. Email with questions, comments, issues, concerns, or problems regarding diversity at New York Tech or the work of the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging. Your correspondence will be confidential and receive a prompt reply.
