Advancement and Philanthropy

The Development and Alumni Relations Office (DARO) is dedicated to working globally to identify strategic partners to solicit additional philanthropic support to supplement and support the strategic goals of NYUAD in teaching, learning, and research.

The staff of DARO work in collaboration with our partners across the University to discover, motivate, cultivate, solicit, and steward alumni, parents, faculty, and friends for immediate, long-range, and future support, through gifts and pledges to NYU, for critical operations such as faculty support, academic and research program development, and facilities and infrastructure. DARO’s endeavors raise additional funds to support the long-term vision and priorities of the school.

DARO is the NYUAD division of University Development and Alumni Relations (UDAR) at NYU New York.
