Academic advising is integral to NYU Shanghai’s teaching and learning mission as well as student success. As a developmental process, academic advising is an intentional, ongoing dialogue and partnership between students and advisors regarding their personal, educational, and professional goals. At NYU Shanghai, advisors help students enhance themselves and develop into members of an academic and professional community that values diversity, inclusiveness, and global awareness.
Courses offered at different sites would follow the academic calendar from that site.
The NYU Shanghai Advising Office celebrates, recognizes, and upholds standards for inclusion, diversity, belonging, equity, and accessibility (IDBEA) by incorporating its principles into our advising practice and culture; engaging in ongoing training, reflection, and activism related to IDBEA; and modeling professional culture that is consistent with an inclusive, equitable, diverse, accessible, and anti-racist environment.
Examples of our commitment to an IDBEA advising practice include: ensuring our materials, events, and activities are ADA compliant; reviewing materials for inclusive language; engaging in ongoing professional development practice (e.g.: SafeZone, Justice Zone, Disability Zone trainings); addressing the needs of systemically or historically marginalized populations through targeted events, workshops, and mentoring opportunities; and partnering with colleagues across the university (e.g.: BeTogether Ambassadors, LEAD facilitators) in service of a deeply embedded, inclusive mission.
