Advising is a fundamental element of every student’s experience in Global Liberal Studies. Thus, each GLS student is assigned both a faculty advisor and a professional staff academic advisor. Students are urged to take advantage of the advising opportunities made available by proactively arranging for regular visits with both their faculty advisor and their academic advisor.

Faculty advisors engage students in conversations about the GLS curriculum, its relation to students’ junior year site selection and their total undergraduate experience. They are also interested in pursuing conversations about how those experiences impact lifelong intellectual and professional pursuits, shape interests and aspirations, and inspire dispositions regarding what constitutes a meaningful life. GLS students also enjoy rich interactions with other faculty, such as those who teach in concentration areas or the senior colloquium, and the senior year thesis supervisor.

Academic advisors provide students practical information about the GLS curriculum, the administrative aspects of class selection and registration, and junior year site selection. They offer advice about how to navigate the various administrative offices at NYU and the complexities of NYU policies and procedures. Academic advisors also have current information regarding declaring a cross school minor, and the transition to the junior year abroad. They also can provide comprehensive information about university-wide student support services.
