Leadership Alliance Mellon Initiative & Undergraduate Summer Research Program
at the NYU Center for the Humanities
Taking advantage of NYU’s position as a world-class interdisciplinary research university, the NYU Center for the Humanities hosts the Leadership Alliance Mellon Initiative (LAMI) and Undergraduate Summer Research Program (USRP) for a small cohort of students from various institutions and NYU. During this summer program, students conduct original research within the humanities under the supervision of NYU faculty mentors in their fields of study. The program prepares students to pursue PhDs in the humanities.
The Center is proud to collaborate with the Leadership Alliance, a higher education consortium comprised of over 30 institutions that are committed to improving the level of diversity in academia. NYU participates in LAMI as part of this collaboration. LAMI & USRP are primarily focused on developing research experience for undergraduates from historically underrepresented groups.
