NYU Arts & Science depends on the talented administrators and staff who advance our common mission. The goal of ASCEND is to connect and engage administrators and staff across Art & Science, and together, create a community built by us, for us. Through planned events and volunteer opportunities, ASCEND aims to strengthen working relationships, foster belonging, and provide networking opportunities for growth and development.
