Research Centers & Institutes

As the academic heart of NYU, Arts & Science nurtures a thriving community of global scholars whose engagement within and across their disciplines continuously pushes the frontiers of knowledge. Pivotal to this effort are the research centers, institutes, and language and cultural houses across our academic unit. These are sites of scientific, intellectual, cultural, and artistic exchange between the Arts & Science faculty, students, and the broader community in New York City and across the world.
