Education Pioneers will be hosting an on-campus information session about its fellowship opportunities for graduate students. The Graduate School Fellowship Program is a full-time, paid, ten-week summer program during which talented graduate students (“Fellows”) work with schools, districts, nonprofits, and other education-focused organizations (“Partners”). Fellows leverage their skills and knowledge to complete a mission-critical consulting project. In addition to their full-time consulting work, Fellows convene in regional cohorts for signature program events including: five full-day workshops on key education reform topics, an end of summer retrospective event, and professional networking opportunities designed to expand Fellows’ knowledge and professional networks. Open to graduate students.
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural event, the 2012 NYU Entrepreneurs Festival is a two-day celebration of startups and entrepreneurship for the NYU community. Over the course of this 2-day celebration, NYU alumni, faculty and student entrepreneurs representing most every school at NYU, will come together to share their startup stories through a series of keynotes, panels, roundtables, workshops, a venture showcase and a big party.
Featured NYU entrepreneur speakers this year include Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter and Square; Herb Kelleher, founder of Southwest Airlines; Rachel Sterne Haot, founder of GroundReport and Chief Digital Officer of NYC; and Alexandre Douzet, co-founder of The Ladders and over 30 other NYU entrepreneurs. The Festival kicks off Friday, November 2 at 1pm and runs through Saturday, November 3. A full agenda, list of speakers and links to purchase tickets can be found at: http://nyue.org/festival.
Whether you are the planner, the post-er, or the performer, there is a role for you as an
NYU Health Leader! In addition to their role as Student Health Center Ambassadors, NYU Health Leaders promote health and wellness through participation in one of the following track teams: The Facilitator Team, our “performers”, loves expressing ideas with frozen body language. In the future, they hope to run for President or headline a Vegas show — all the while maintaining the role of social change agent. Facilitators lead NYU’s bystander intervention training, Step Up! NYU. They not only facilitate, but create and lead interactive theatre! The Media Team, our “post-ers”, secretly hopes their YouTube channel will go viral. In the future, they hope to reach the masses with their state-of-the-art Zombie Apocalypse warning system. The Media Team creates a venue for imparting important health messages. They use their creative talents to reach the masses through video, social media, blogging, and more! The Outreach Team, our “planners”, knows how to create an “experience” and can coax anyone to attend their events with their charm and encyclopedic knowledge. In the future, they hope to beat the Guiness Book of World Records’ record for the largest flash mob.
Outreach collaborates with other offices, develops new programs, and speaks with NYU students on a myriad of health topics, while staffing information tables/events around campus. Apply today to further develop your skills and utilize your talents to create a healthier NYU! Deadline is Thursday, Nov 1, 2012 www.nyu.edu/shc/promotion
