The Steinhardt International Programming and Advocacy Committee (IPAC) is an unique leadership opportunity within the Steinhardt  community that draws on the rich experiences of students to share their knowledge, their excitement or experiences of international study, and develop community with other students, with faculty, and the larger Steinhardt and NYU community. The Steinhardt IPAC is for globally minded undergraduate and graduate students to connect around ideas of intercultural exchange, international diversity, and being involved in student activities.

The Steinhardt IPAC is a student-led initiative that works with the Steinhardt Office of Student Affairs in the organization and promotion of activities which celebrate and engage the diversity of countries, cultures, perspectives, traditions, and values within the Steinhardt community. The Committee serves as a forum for communication and recommendation between the Steinhardt student population and the Steinhardt Office of Student Affairs on topics of intercultural exchange, international diversity, and the unique needs of the international student population.


Applications are open to both undergraduate and graduate students and are due by Thursday, April 21, 2016. You can apply online here.

NYU Ally Week: April 11-15

At a large urban institution with hundreds of micro-communities, it is often challenging to foster meaningful cross-cultural interactions. NYU Ally Week creates opportunities for students, faculty, and administrators to deepen their understanding of the experiences of others, and raise awareness of the individual and collective injustices that confront many in our society. Working from an intersectional and intercultural understanding of oppression, the entire campus community will be challenged to examine stereotypes and prejudice through events, a photo campaign, pledge stations, and social media!

Faith Zone Ally Training – Fri. April 15, 2016 10am-1pm

Faith Zone is a training workshop designed to promote spiritual and religious literacy and dialogue. NYU students, faculty, and staff members can participate this training to become Faith Zone certified. Breakfast will be served.

Faith Zone Trainings (FZT) are a resource for students, faculty and staff on campus who desire innovative and participatory training, contextualized resources, and honest dialogue about religion & spirituality. Based upon the Safe Zone model which is used to educate groups about the LGBTQ community, these FZT sessions take a dual approach that integrates theory and practice.

In doing so, FZT engages participants in activities which will increase religious literacy and offer practical tools for learning about religion and spirituality.Topics covered include reflecting on personal experiences with faith and spirituality, examining the global and local context for various religious traditions represented at NYU, as well as discussing tips for creating a safe and welcoming environment in one’s office, residence hall, student group or classroom.

Participants will receive a certificate of completion and placard to display verifying the completion of the training.

Afternoon Tea Chat with President Hamilton

Earlier this month, the Student Senators Council hosted an Afternoon Tea Chat with President Hamilton at which we discussed several items, including Affordability. Since then, much progress has been made in this area, with the most notable being the projected increase in the student hourly wage to $15. The Student Senators Council appreciates and respects the work of President Hamilton and the administration, and our thoughts on the matter of affordability can be found in this letter.

This Thursday, we are hosting a second opportunity for students to hear directly from President Hamilton. At this week’s Afternoon Chat we will be discussing the Undergraduate Academic Experience, and will leave time for open Q+A. Please join us Thursday, 3/31/16, at 4:00 PM in the Hayden Commuter Den for this Afternoon Tea chat. If you are unable to join in person, you may participate virtually by following the live stream and submitting questions online.
