NYU Steinhardt
New Undergraduate Experience
A Special Note from Dean Patricia Carey

On behalf of the Office of Student Affairs, I welcome you to the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. We want you to use the following information as your “roadmap” to get connected, be involved, and stay informed as you begin your academic journey here.

Online Orientation
By now, you have completed your Online Orientation, having met many important people along the way – virtually. Keep this site bookmarked for use as a resource in the future

New Student Seminar (SAHS-UE 1)
Along with your classmates, peer mentors, and instructors, you will discuss our theme and reading in your required New Student Seminar as you make meaning of your transition to scholarly life at NYU. We use the New Student Reading as a guide to explore your role in our diverse, inclusive, and global community.

This year we are reading Ta-Nehisi Coates Between the World and Me. As you read and discuss the book, we will ask you to think about how your life experiences have shaped the person you are today. How might you think about who you are and where you feel you belong as you proceed into your academic future? We will examine how family, community, and cultural values have shaped how you see and experience other people. How have your friends and families prepared you for adulthood?

You will be hearing from your peer mentor in the next couple of weeks.

Statement on Academic Integrity – ACTION REQUIRED
The relationship between students and faculty is the keystone of the educational experience at New York University. Mutual trust, respect and responsibility are foundational requirements. Thus, how you learn is as important as what you learn. A university education aims not only to produce high quality scholars, but to also cultivate honorable citizens.

Please complete the Academic Integrity Tutorial. Once you complete this tutorial your Departmental Academic Adviser will be notified.

Steinhardt Office of Student Affairs
The Steinhardt Student Affairs staff, along with your departmental and/or program academic advisers, will help you identify and use student resources important for academic success, self-empowerment and engagement, including extracurricular activities, community service, and self-advocacy. Take advantage of these offerings that are available to you.

The Steinhardt Student Guide
Know your student rights and responsibilities. And, as a first step, review the Steinhardt Student Guide, which is a document that contains important policies and procedures that guide undergraduate study.

Undergraduate Student Government
Let your voice be heard with your participation in Undergraduate Student Government (USG). In fact, think about running for Freshman Class President, or another position – elections will be held in early September.

In joining our academic community, I hope that you will, indeed, "get connected, be involved, and stay informed." Ask questions, read deeply, and remain curious.

I look forward to meeting you at the Dean’s Welcome during Welcome Week.

Have a safe and enjoyable summer! And, remember to complete your tutorial on Academic Integrity.

With all best wishes,

Patricia M. Carey, PhD
