External Affairs

External Affairs

The External Affairs team fosters relationships with the external community to inspire innovation, advance entrepreneurship, and support the core mission of New York Institute of Technology. External Affairs seeks to represent, engage and promote our university to external stakeholders. Our team also facilitates collaborative relationships with corporate, business, and community leaders; prospective students and parents; regional, state, and federal legislators; peer institutions; K-12 and youth organizations; local residents, alumni, and donors in a number of targeted and strategic activities.

Become a Partner

We invite you to engage with us through corporate sponsorships, joint research projects and publications, entrepreneurial activities, and/or expert consultations that leverage our students’ and faculty’s talents, as well as our lab facilities and other resources. 

We also offer opportunities for external partners to participate in, or co-host, our world-class thought leadership forums and signature events, where experts convene, discuss, and propose solutions for the world’s greatest challenges. These events also highlight our faculty, students and staff achievements, and raise awareness of technology fields among our own community and the public at large.

Corporate Partnerships

External partners can also engage with us through two programs:

Women’s Technology Council (WTC)

The mission of the New York Institute of Technology Women’s Technology Council (WTC) is to support women, including students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends, through mentorship, events, and resources to advance their careers, assume leadership positions and contribute to building an inclusive and diverse workforce. 

The WTC has launched an Endowment Challenge to support women achieve their personal and professional goals.

Events & Conferences

The Events and Conferences Team strategically produces events, conferences, receptions, and VIP experiences. We are also a resource to the broader New York Tech community, providing strategic and tactical advice for events.
