Welcome Letter from Dean Rosner

Aug 25, 2023

Dean Victoria Rosner

Dear Gallatin students,

I am delighted to welcome you to the Fall 2023 term – and to extend a warm greeting to the more than 500 students joining us for the first time this semester.

It has been a tremendous pleasure for me to serve as Gallatin’s dean, a position I took on last year. I have loved the opportunity to get acquainted with such an extraordinary student community, and I look forward to connecting with you all in the coming academic year.

I am eager to share with you some Gallatin events happening this fall:

  • Friday, September 1: Welcome to Gallatin Brunch at the Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts, the cap off to Orientation Week and a chance to meet your classmates for a nosh before classes begin.
  • Friday, September 8: Apple Picking at Apple Ridge Orchards in Warwick, New York. This student-only event is an annual highlight of the Fall semester.
  • Monday, September 11: Chile: Memory and the Future at our own Gallatin Galleries, featuring the work of contemporary Chilean artists who offer us a glimpse into their world 50 years post-coup d'état.
  • Monday, September 18: African Grove Theatre Symposium, a discussion of OUR VERSE IN TIME TO COME, a play that uses hip hop lingo combined with Shakespearean plot lines to show the fluidity of language through the ages.
  • Saturday, October 21: The Big Walkat Hunts Point in the Bronx, a signature Gallatin event led by Professor Louise Harpman, that brings together our academic community to “walk and talk” about our city and discover it from new angles. 

As these events approach, you can read about them and other Gallatin news in The Weekly, our newsletter that will arrive in your email inbox each Tuesday. In the meantime, please follow us on our social channels @nyugallatin and continue to tag us and share your stories – we love hearing from you.

On behalf of the entire NYU Gallatin community, I wish you all a great start to the academic year and look forward to seeing you soon at One Washington Place.

All my best,

Professor Victoria Rosner
Dean, NYU Gallatin
