New York University (NYU), one of the most prominent and respected research universities in the world, invites nominations and applications for the position of Vice President for Recruitment, Admissions and Financial Aid. 

Anchored in New York City and with degree-granting campuses in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai as well as 11 study-away sites throughout the world, NYU is a leader in global education, with more international students and more students studying abroad than any other university in the United States. For the class of 2026, NYU received a record number of applicants for the 15th straight year. With over 105,000 applications, NYU was among the highest universities in the U.S. for number of applications received. NYU students come from nearly every state and 133 countries, and the University draws upon the diverse backgrounds of its faculty, staff and students, ensuring its scholarship and teaching benefit from a wide range of perspectives. NYU takes seriously its role as an engine of social mobility and stands out among the top U.S. universities in its representation of low-income and first-generation students within its community. 

Since its founding in 1831, NYU has been an innovator in higher education, reaching out to an emerging middle class, embracing an urban identity and professional focus and promoting a global vision that informs its 19 schools and colleges. Now among the largest private universities in the United States, NYU provides a rigorous, demanding education to more than 65,000 students and undertakes $1 billion in research annually.

This newly created role is a critical leadership position with significant opportunity to impact the continued enrollment trajectory of a world-class university and the students it serves.
