New York University’s Marron Institute Joins us as Academic Member

We are thrilled to add another top institution to our international academic members – New York University’s Marron Institute.

New York University’s Marron Institute on Cities and the Urban Environment is an interdisciplinary and international effort to advance vital new research and teaching on cities and the urban environment.

“The Marron Institute is committed to applying NYU’s diverse research on the urban environment to help make cities around the world become more livable, sustainable, and equitable. We are excited to work with the New Cities Foundation and its impressive network to engage new global partners and develop new approaches for applying our research to the challenges cities face,” said Richard L. Revesz, Director of the Marron Institute.

The Marron Institute is a University-wide effort, bringing together the expertise of NYU’s internationally distinguished scholars and research centers in the social sciences, natural sciences, humanities, and professional schools. Based in New York City, the Institute is a new base for cross-cutting research, teaching, and practical engagement on policy issues facing cities and the urban environment around the world.
