Gallatin students have led the way on environmental action and awareness. Gallatin students were the first to create a sustainability task force at New York University, leading to a LEED Gold certified home for Gallatin, wind power for the University, and an innovative recycling program.


The ability of students to chart their own courses of study and the variety of faculty who support this has led to an explosion of green courses, concentrations, and projects at Gallatin.


From our campus-wide recycling program to research on the history of ecological design, environmental action is an important part of Gallatin and NYU.
