Student Activities & Community Engagement

At NYU Shanghai, we believe that active participation in student government, joining diverse student clubs and organizations, or volunteering for meaningful service projects are vital avenues for exploring new ideas and cultures, nurturing your passions and hobbies, honing valuable leadership and skills, and making valuable contributions not only to the NYU Shanghai community but also to the wider Shanghai community.

We strongly encourage all students to become part of at least one club or extracurricular activity during their time at NYU Shanghai. Currently, NYU Shanghai Student Government funds and supports over 25 vibrant student clubs and organizations, providing students with the perfect platform to take on leadership roles, develop teamwork abilities, and acquire critical organizational and communication skills.

Furthermore, the Center for Student Involvement extends opportunities for community engagement, allowing students to connect with Shanghai's residents and communities throughout China. These engagement opportunities span educational initiatives, environmental conservation efforts, and more, enabling students to apply and further develop their leadership and skills while making a positive impact on society.

If you're eager to get involved in enriching activities beyond the classroom, feel free to reach out to the NYU Shanghai Center for Student Involvement Team at for more information.
