NYU is proud to be first university to partner with the March for Science to celebrate and champion rigorous and objective science that is robustly funded and publicly communicated. NYU’s diverse and multidisciplinary researchers undertake science that serves the common good, generate data and analyses that informs evidence-based debate and policy-making, and share their findings with students and the general public in ways that make for educated and better informed citizens.
NYU will be an active and nonpartisan partner in the March. NYU researchers will also take part in the pre-march Teach-In and Rally on the National Mall (we will have a dedicated NYU tent), and a public post-march “Debrief”, hosted at the NYU DC campus.
- To celebrate the contributions of scientific research to societal understanding and progress
- To engage other scientists, educators, policy experts, information users, and the public at large to learn about diverse scientific research areas, tools and approaches, emerging findings and current challenges
- To enable scientific research and contributions from diverse and underrepresented groups, irrespective of religion, race, economic status, identity and orientation, citizenship, place of origin or any other identities
- To champion the role and importance of publicly funded scientific research and development
Main Events (Day of the March)
The following information pertains to NYU's participation in the March and day-of events. For more information, visit the Office of Sustainability March for Science webpage.
Banners, signs, and posters for the march are generally OK to bring in. The March for Science FAQ has more detailed information. In general, bags look like they are allowed, but will be checked. So please tell all your colleagues/friends/family to allow plenty of time for security.
11:30am-12:20pm - Teach-In with NYU Tent on the National Mall (Corner of 17th St. NW and Constitution Ave. NW) - TENT #8
NYU Faculty representing a range of disciplines and departments will provide a “speed science” session, detailing important scientific research questions, pursuits and contributions. Teach-in sessions will begin at 9am, so get there early to avoid crowds!
ES slot is 11:30-12:20 AM. If possible, please plan to assemble at least 5-10 minutes prior so we can kick-off on time! The Teach-In tents will be approximately located on Northwest side of the Washington Monument, adjacent to 17th Street (across from the WWII monument).
10:00 am - March for Science: Rally and March on the National Mall; March starts at 2:00pm
Join science advocates, science educators, scientists, and concerned citizens in a rally and march to support science. Route to be posted on March for Science Website.
4:30 pm - Open Forum “Debrief” at the NYU DC Campus - 1307 L Street, NW Lobby
This Debrief will be a moderated discussion open to public comment about what we have learned as a community from the March for Science and regarding ways to sustain momentum in our pursuit of championing the role of science in society.
There will be food and we will confirm the bus pick-up location shortly (although I believe that pick-up is possible from the NYU DC campus). Please do plan to get there by 5pm if you would like to participate.
