Hide Profile

The Office of the President is the top administrative office of New York University and is responsible for the management of the entire University structure. The duties of the President include the development, implementation, and monitoring of University activities, the cultivation of outreach programs, and the promotion of University activities to prospective donors and to the general public. During the years 1951-1965, Acting Chancellor James L. Madden, Chancellor/President Henry T. Heald, President Carroll V. Newsom, and President James M. Hester served as chief administrators of New York University. The title of the position was changed from Chancellor to President in 1956, indicative of the concerns during the 1950's with administrative reorganization. During this period the office went through a number of changes in administrative structure, and NYU as a whole went through changes affecting its educational mission and organizational structure, This was also a period of financial challenges for the University, and extensive building development.
