Report An Incident
There are various methods you can use to report incidents.
Critical Incident Response and Resources
Unpredictable events like natural disasters, national/local emergencies, tragic events, and family difficulties (to name a few) can disrupt a student’s life. If you are experiencing such an event, the Office of the Dean of Students is here to help you. We are among the countless offices that stand ready to support our students by identifying campus and local resources and connecting you with incredible campus support services like the Wellness Exchange and the Office of Financial Aid. Students experiencing prolonged housing and food challenges can explore the support services outlined in our Basic Needs page.
Vigils and Community Gatherings
Sometimes, tragic events occur that deeply affect members of the NYU community. Vigils are one way of gathering to mourn or commemorate a tragedy. Any student(s) can request that the Center for Global Spiritual Life organize a vigil and/or a community gathering, using the Vigil and Community Gathering Request form. Learn more about the differences between a vigil and a community gathering:
What is a Vigil?
A vigil refers to an in-person gathering, unless otherwise specified, to mourn or commemorate a tragedy. Vigils take place on the Kimmel steps and are arranged solely through the Center for Global Spiritual Life.
What is a Community Gathering space?
A community gathering is a facilitated virtual gathering space for community members to process tragedies or hard periods through discussion and dedicated silence.
Please note: the University and the Center for Global and Spiritual Life reserve the right to deny a request for a vigil and/or community space. For questions, please email email@example.com.
