Education at YU is collaborative. Students learn a great deal from each other as well as from their professors, who provide careful guidance and maintain the highest ethical standards in the classrooms.

Centers & Institutes

Through University-wide faculty seminars, scholar-in-residence programs, student events and activities, and public programs, our centers and institute engage in interdisciplinary, collaborative research across the University as well as establish YU as a catalyst for informed, thoughtful public discussions of issues across a wide spectrum. Led by distinguished scholars and faculty members, our centers and institutes also serve as resources to the community, especially the Jewish community, in addressing relevant issues both contemporary and old.
