Academic Affairs and Assessment

The Provost’s Office oversees undergraduate and graduate education and academic policies and priorities throughout the global network.

Undergraduate

Under the leadership of Vice Provost Georgina Dopico, the Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs works closely with the deans of NYU’s twelve undergraduate schools to oversee all aspects of the undergraduate education of NYU’s 29,000+ undergraduate students. The Vice Provost for Undergraduate Academic Affairs and for the Humanities is responsible for the review of all undergraduate academic policies and programs, academic advising, cross-school curricula, multi-school programs, undergraduate research, and for convening the Undergraduate Deans, the Undergraduate Program Committee, and the Undergraduate Academic Affairs Committee.

Associate Vice Provost Ryan Poynter convenes meetings of the Advising Deans and assists the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Academic Affairs in coordinating the activities of the Undergraduate Program Committee, the Undergraduate Academic Affairs Committee, and the ad-hoc Faculty Committee on the Future of Technology-Enhanced Education at NYU.

Graduate

Under the leadership of Deputy Provost Cybele Raver, the Office of the Provost at NYU works closely with the deans of the 15 schools with graduate programs as well as Student Life to ensure a first-class education and academic experience for our 20,000 graduate students. Prospective, new, and returning students can visit the NYU Graduate Student webpage to learn about NYU's extraordinary range of academic programs and to find out how to enrich their lives while in one of the most vibrant cities in the world.

Academic Program Review and Assessment

The Deputy Provost also oversees the Office of Academic Program Review and Assessment, which serves as the liaison to the University’s regional accrediting association, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. It is responsible for the registration of new programs and changes to currently registered programs with the New York State Education Department; seeking necessary approvals from states other than New York for relevant educational activities within those states; and tracking and supporting the NYU student learning outcomes program-level assessment system.
