Diversity and Inclusion at Gallatin

Diversity Council

The Diversity Council of NYU Gallatin is committed to building and supporting a culture of inclusion, diversity, belonging, equity and accessibility (IDBEA). Its members, which consist of students, faculty and administrators, intend to work with key components of the School in order to assess how the community can improve its efforts in IDBEA issues; in order to bring forth recommendations to the Dean; and to create pathways for evaluating the Council's and School's initiatives. The council will strive to create forums where students and other members of the Gallatin community can voice their concerns.

The Diversity Council is open to all Gallatin students, staff, and faculty. We encourage you to join us for any of our upcoming Diversity Council open sessions. If you have any suggestions for the Diversity Council, or IDBEA initiatives you'd like to see exist at Gallatin, please fill out the Gallatin Diversity Council Suggestion Form, which is accessible to the Diversity Council committee members. Additionally, if you have questions, comments, or concerns related to issues pertaining to IDBEA and would like to reach out to the Diversity Council committee members directly, we encourage you to email the Diversity Council at

Amplified Voices Series

The Gallatin Diversity Council is excited to announce The Amplified Voices Series, which seeks to host speakers and events that center the voices and experiences of historically marginalized identities as well as celebrations of cultural heritage. This series prioritizes global inclusion, diversity, belonging, equity, and accessibility (IDBEA) and our aim is to encourage ongoing conversations, workshops, and activities that contribute to an ethos of antiracism and multicultural inclusion.   


Call for Proposals 

We are currently seeking proposals for the 2023-2024 academic year from members of the Gallatin community, including faculty, students, staff, and administrators. At the moment, we are especially interested in proposals for Black History Month in February. Other considerations for heritage months and days of recognition include but are not limited to: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Women’s History Month, Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month, LGBTQ+ Pride and History, International Transgender Day of Visibility, Juneteenth, Indigenous People’s Day, Native American Heritage Month, Latinx Heritage Month, Arab American Heritage Month, and Disability Pride. To submit a proposal, please complete the following Amplified Voices Proposal Form. Submissions are reviewed on a monthly basis. We also welcome inquiries and questions prior to submission.


Identity Spaces

Gallatin identity spaces feature informal and recurring identity-based social meeting spaces for students, faculty, and staff. The goal is for members of the Gallatin community with shared identities to be able to foster sustained connection, mutual support, and potentially offer students additional mentorship opportunities. Meetings will be offered several times throughout the semester and have the possibility to work alongside Gallatin’s Diversity Council and ongoing conversations about inclusivity, diversity, belonging and equity.

See below for the Identity Spaces that are offered at Gallatin. We encourage anybody who shares these identities and are looking for connection to join us at our upcoming meetings. For questions about the meeting times or to propose a new identity-based social space, email

  • Students of Color Identity Space
  • LGBTQ+ Identity Space
  • First-Generation Identity Space
  • Chronic Illness/Disability Identity Space

Pull-Up, Gallatin's Anti-Racist Dialogue Circle

Welcome to Pull-Up: Gallatin’s Anti-Racist Dialogue Circle! Pull-Up is a new initiative at Gallatin where students come together monthly to learn about, center, and practice Anti-Racism (and other Anti-Oppressive practices). Each month, we will focus on a different topic (some topics include, but are not limited to: white fragility, systemic racism, optical allyship, and much more) and will put a call out for people of privileged identities to “Pull Up” to the conversation in order to take the onus of educating about racism and oppression off marginalized people. People of all identities are welcome to join our conversations, but if you hold historically privileged identities, consider this your invitation to join our circle! This first meeting will be an opportunity for people to connect and share what they’d like to see in our coming conversations.
