NYU Shanghai Global Academic Fellows Present Winter Fellowship Projects

Mar 14 2015

On March 13, 2015, NYU Shanghai Global Academic Fellows (GAFs) convened in the University gallery space to present posters on their Winter Fellowship Projects—a personal or professional research opportunity that contributes to the intellectual life or future development of NYU Shanghai and the GAF Program.

Supportive and curious faculty, staff, and students circulated the room with questions and conversation on various projects ranging from art, technology, and writing to research and critical analysis of issues in society and higher education.

The GAF group showcased projects varying from mathematical mobile apps, 3D printing topography, photography darkrooms, athletics, and migrant workers—adding a unique dimension to their contributions to NYU Shanghai.

"The diversity shows how GAFs' individual passions and creativity bring so much to enrich the NYU Shanghai community,” said Director of Academic Resources Diane Geng.

The Winter Fellowship Project provided a distinctive opportunity in experiencing how GAFs are involved in more than their daily academic support roles as mentors, tutors, writing consultants, and study group leaders to students in the Academic Resource Center (ARC).
