What is the Global Engagement Symposium?
The Global Engagement Symposium is a gathering of NYU community members designed to showcase student engagement through international opportunities (international student enrollment in New York; student movement through degree-granting campuses, global academic centers and exchange partner universities).
When is the Global Engagement Symposium?
The 2019-20 Symposium will be held on April 17th, 2020.
Where is the Symposium being held this year?
The Symposium will be held on NYU’s New York campus at 19 Washington Square North. Students at NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai and NYU’s global academic centers will be able to participate in the symposium remotely via digital platforms.
Who is eligible for consideration?
Applicants must be currently matriculated NYU sophomores, juniors or seniors in good academic standing and good judicial standing.
The symposium is open to undergraduate international students, current and former study away participants, and exchange students engaged locally in service opportunities, research, and internships while away from their “home” countries and/or “home” campuses.
Can I still submit a proposal if I won't be studying in New York during the fall semester?
Yes, this is fine. The symposium committee welcomes and encourages a variety of submissions from students across all of NYU’s degree-granting campuses and study away sites.
Is travel to New York required or provided in order to participate in the symposium?
Travel to New York is not required for participation and transportation is not provided. Selected proposals will be featured electronically via the Symposium’s online portal.
When is the deadline to submit a proposal?
The deadline to submit a proposal for in-person or web-based presentations is March 15, 2020.
When will I find out if I am selected?
Notification dates are TBD and will be posted shortly.
Does participation in the symposium automatically excuse me from missed classes or other academic conflicts?
No, it is not an automatic excuse. It is up to the participant to contact faculty members to request any academic accommodations related to participation in the symposium, and to work with professors to make up missed work if possible. We will be happy to provide documentation of your participation to your professors.
