One-on-One Student Outreach and Support

Student Success Specialists work one-on-one with students to help them address any academic concerns or barriers to their holistic success, including (but not limited to):

  • Referrals to campus resources that promote their short- and long-term success
  • Finding community and establishing holistic support systems that best support their individualized needs and identities
  • Providing guidance to help navigate social, personal, and professional transitions and conversations
  • Supporting students to develop study skills and strategies
  • Fostering an encouraging and supportive environment to help clarify and reach their educational goals

Students can create an appointment with a Specialist through NYU Connect.

We are also committed to providing access to a variety of financial education resources to help students and families be empowered to make sound financial decisions about college and beyond. NYU students, faculty, staff, and families are welcome to use these tools.

Highly Targeted and Innovative Academic Support

Our Academic Success Texts Program, grounded in behavioral science research, sends incoming first-year students timely nudges via text message to promote NYU resources, learning to learn content, and individualized support throughout the academic year.

Data-Informed Decision Making

We leverage data to inform our work, answer tough questions, and drive targeted action. Our team continuously utilizes student and campus information to develop effective programs, make policy and practice recommendations, and drive outreach that supports our campus community. Additionally, we oversee several surveys, which help us understand the student experience first-hand so we can create efforts to support it.

Collaborating with the NYU Community

Our office leads a number of committees, working groups, and events to collaborate with our university partners and tackle specific University concerns. The Standing Committee on Student Success and its subcommittees are composed of representatives from all corners of the university. We also have a dedicated group of student leaders on the Student Advisory Committee.

In the upcoming year, we will be launching the first Student Success Summit for the NYU Community. Check back for more information.
