Faculty members engage with every Student Affairs office, spanning a variety of mentorship, teaching, and advisory roles. Some highlights from 2014-2015 include:  

  • The Student Health Center partnered with NYU’s Institute of Global Public Health on undergraduate public health course addressing tobacco use at NYU.
  • 100 faculty representing all NYU schools are embedded into our residential life program to create intimate "learning communities" for our students by integrating their academic experiences with their residential lives.
