GPH is here to help our teaching faculty with everything from proposing new courses, to staying up-to-date on NYU policies, to taking teaching-intensive workshops.
Syllabus-Specific Resources (including instructions on course proposals)
- Academic Calendar - consult the Academic Calendar for important semester dates, holidays, and schedules.

Deadlines for New Course Proposals: Course proposals are due 2 weeks before each Academic Affairs Committee meeting as outlined below. For example, if you would like your proposal to be reviewed at the March 29th meeting, the documents should be submitted no later than March 15th.
The course proposal form, the draft syllabus, as well as the GPH Guide to Syllabus Preparation & Checklist should be completed and signed, where necessary, and sent to Lisa Kroin, Director, Registration & Academic services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
