This is our Vision Statement in Practice. It’s a collection of concrete examples of how the NYU-Poly Vision Statement (the driving force behind the curriculum decisions we make, the large-scale projects we undertake, the partnerships we forge) is more than just words. Explore how our student, faculty, and Institute activities make us who we are.
We educate, discover, and invent.
We engage students seeking education achievement and opportunity, faculty seeking excellence and relevance, and organizations seeking solutions and talent.
We creatively bring intellectual rigor, technological innovation, and a passion for science to the communities where we work and live and to the citizens of the world.
We innovatively extend the benefits of science, engineering, management and liberal studies to critical real-world opportunities and challenges, especially those linked to urban systems, health and wellness, and the global information economy.
Our Vision Statement and the activities we engage in to execute it have their origins in the Polytechnic Strategic Plan (PDF), the roadmap to our future.
