Today, NYIT campuses are now akin to “idea centers” around the globe where commerce, culture, intellectualism, and academics come together. These locations function as a unified - but heterogeneous - whole, offering shared experiences and educational opportunities to all students and faculty. This redefining of the global university is at the core of NYIT’s mission. A global, private institution of higher education, NYIT has 14,000 students on campuses in North America, China, the Middle East, and online.
