NYU Leadership Week 2018

Building Networks. Mobilizing Communities.

October 22 – 25, 2018

Save the Date! Starting October 22 – 25th, the NYU Leadership Initiative will be offering university-wide events and workshops to explore how to identify, build, and activate a network of developmental relationships. The entire NYU community is invited to engage in interactive workshops and hear from featured guest speakers. Throughout the week, students will examine common networking misconceptions, understand different relationships, and learn how to gain the support needed to advocate for themselves and for others.

Get ready to hear from all-star speakers, grab giveaways, and take your leadership to the next level. See the full schedule and register at bit.ly/LeadershipWeek2018!

And help make the week a success by signing up for a volunteer shift on our website. Volunteers play a critical role in fostering inclusive leadership at NYU, have the opportunity to meet new peers, and take home a swag bag.

Working with TGNC/NB (Transgender/Gender nonconforming/nonbinary) people: When coming out is complex

When working with TGNC/NB people, it is important to consider the multiple identities they hold in order to best support them. This talk, led by Brooke Donatone, Ph.D., LCSW,  NYU Counseling & Wellness Services, will address the complexity of coming out issues when people may have different understandings of what coming out means to them and where/if/how this takes place based on multiple identities.

Date: October 18, 2018

Time: 12:30 – 1:45 pm

Place: Pless Hall 3rd Floor Student Lounge, 82 Washington Square South East

Lunch will be provided.

Description: The Goldwater Scholarships award funding for undergraduate study leading to research careers in mathematics, natural science or engineering. Please see the Goldwater website for information about what areas of study are supported. If you look over the list of past Goldwater scholars, you’ll see that the foundation notes undergraduate majors and career objectives. They also have very specific advice for students who plan to study medicine: “Students who plan to study medicine are eligible for a Goldwater Scholarship only if they plan a research career rather than a career as a practicing physician with emphasis on the clinical practice of medicine and patient care.”

Volunteers Needed for College Connections

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is seeking undergraduate and graduate volunteers with a passion for increasing access to higher education to assist a middle school outreach initiative called College Connections. College Connections provides an engaging information session and brief campus tour, which introduce middle school students to the landscape of higher education. Our goal is to get students excited about college and equip them with tips and resources necessary to prepare for the application process. Volunteers will receive training from the Diversity Initiatives team. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please email Tysha Vulcain-Murrell at tvm242@nyu.edu.
