Adrienne Henry Headshot

Adrienne N. Henry is the Program Administrator for the Tisch Initiative for Creative Research. Her work facilitates inter-disciplinary and collaborative research led by Tisch students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Her previous role in Dean Allyson Green’s office allowed her to support special projects such as University-wide voter engagement efforts, Tisch’s IDBEA Commitments, Dean’s Faculty Grants, and the *This is Not a Drill* climate fellows. 

A New York University alumna, Adrienne earned her Master of Arts in Cinema Studies from Tisch in 2013. Raised in South Florida, she graduated summa cum laude from Florida Atlantic University with a bachelor's degree in Film, Video, and New Media, and a minor in Theatre Arts. As a first-generation Cuban-American, daughter of a single mother with disabilities, and the first in her family to receive a graduate degree, Adrienne prides herself on centering students subjected to intersecting oppressions in all that she does. This advocacy can be seen most prominently in her work co-authoring the HEAR US Awards program. 

She is a glutinous consumer of narrative in all forms, a plant mom, an intermittent yogi, and is probably listening to a political podcast right now.
