The Student Engagement and Services team is integral to the School's educational mission of human development. To assist students in their personal growth and in achieving their educational objectives, we collaborate with faculty, administrators, and students to provide programs, services, and opportunities that are responsive to the dynamic nature of the educational process; enrich the educational experience for the School’s diverse undergraduate and graduate student population; and embody the School's support for all phases of a student’s development and the diversity of student needs. If you would like to meet with a member of our team, you can reach out to us directly or visit us during our virtual walk-in hours; no appointments are necessary.
Contact or visit the Student Engagement and Services team for information on student activities including:
- Conversations of Color: Brings together faculty and students for timely discussions covering the spectrum of diversity.
- Check In Chat: Informal, monthly check-ins with us to discuss how you’re adjusting to remote learning, any challenges you may be experiencing, or any other topic you wish to chat about.
- Tea Time: Enjoy a cup of tea (or your favorite afternoon beverage) and an hour of down time.
- Let's Talk International: Discussion group and safe space for study abroad returnees, international students, third culture kids, and anybody interested in international/intercultural experiences to explore a variety of topics.

The Student Engagement and Services team provides a wide range of support and assistance for NYU Steinhardt students. These include the New International Graduate Student Seminar (SAHS-GE 2003), University-Wide Student Services, Leave of Absence/Exit Interviews. If you are not sure where to start, visit the Student Engagement team during drop-in hours or at any of our events.
Staff members are available to assist students upon request of the individual, referral by faculty, or if academic work has fallen below School standards for satisfactory academic progress.
As a pre-professional school, Steinhardt's career counseling is often facilitated by our faculty, but students can also receive assistance from a representative from the Wasserman Center for Career Development three afternoons each week.
A professional staff is available to listen, to provide free confidential counseling to help you define the issues you are facing, and to develop strategies to help.
