Stefania & Mark Magidson, Parents' Council Co-Chiars

Welcome to NYU Tisch School of the Arts!

On behalf of the Tisch Parents’ Council, we want to welcome your family to the School. We are confident you will find Tisch to be every bit the vibrant and stellar artistic community you hoped it would be. Our son is starting his junior year in the Film and Television program and we’ve been thrilled to witness his passion and continuous progress in a field Tisch is revered for. The Parents’ Council is a way for you to stay involved with your daughter or son’s Tisch experience and to make new and meaningful relationships with other parents as well as to meet the amazing educators Tisch exposes its students to. We look forward to meeting you and feel assured you will find your engagement with the Parents’ Council rewarding.  

What is the Tisch Parents' Council?

The Tisch Parents’ Council is a group of more than 90 philanthropic families from around the world who wish to be involved with their child’s school. These members may attend meetings, social gatherings, and special events where they have opportunities to provide feedback and exchange perspectives with the Dean, the faculty and administrative leadership of the school. 

Giving

A minimum gift of $7,500 to any program or fund within the Tisch School qualifies for 12-month membership from the date of the gift. Parents may support the Tisch Parents fund, scholarships, or an aspect of their child's department -- such as production funds for the Drama or Film & TV departments. 

In the past three years, Tisch parents have donated over $7M to funds such as scholarships, pipeline programs, production funds, funded internships, alumni mentor programs, and unrestricted funds at the discretion of the school’s leadership. All this to say that parents' philanthropic support is critical to the education we offer at Tisch.
