The New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG) is a New York State-wide student-directed, non-partisan political organization. It has existed since 1973.
NYPIRG is controlled by a student board of directors. Any issue that NYPIRG works on, or stance it takes, must be approved by its student board of directors.  Aileen Sheil is the current chairperson of NYPIRG's board of directors. NYPIRG is one of the largest of the Public Interest Research Groups, which were inspired by Ralph Nader in the 1970s, and operate at the state level. After leaving Columbia University, current President of the United States Barack Obama worked at NYPIRG.
The focus of NYPIRG's program is the campus chapters. Campus chapters exist at schools in the State University of New York (SUNY) City University of New York (CUNY), and two private colleges (Pratt Institute and Syracuse University). The chapters are funded by activity fees which are voted on by students, and/or determined by student governments.
