Gallatin’s turning 50! NYU Gallatin began in 1972 as the University Without Walls and has grown and changed through the years to reflect and respond to the changes presented to our students and alumni. NYU answered an early need for innovation in higher education by founding the University Without Walls (UWW) in 1972. Four short years later, UWW became the Gallatin Division. The success of the Division led to the establishment of the Gallatin School of Individualized Study in 1995. With each change, Gallatin has become academically dynamic, enabling its bright, self-directed, and highly motivated students to take initiative in designing their own educations. As the School enters its 50th year, join us to honor and celebrate all that Gallatin has made possible during five decades of change and growth.


Only current NYU students, faculty, and staff can attend in person events. All attendees must RSVP. All individuals must show the Daily Screener green pass screen prior to entry to the building.
