Welcome to NYU College of Global Public Health!

We are very proud to count you as members of our community and are looking forward to meeting you and working closely together over the next few years!

My name is Julie Avina and I am your Senior Associate Dean for Student and Alumni Affairs. Together with my amazing student affairs colleagues Donald Brown, Andrea Muraca and Angelica Anderson, we will work with you as you progress through your studies at NYU Global Public Health (GPH). We invite you to see us as resources for you – we are partners in your educational experience at GPH.

Please be sure to read each communication carefully as it will assist you in you transition to NYU's Global Public Health and note the dates and tasks outlined.

As always, feel free to reach out with any questions/concerns at cgph.incomingstudents@nyu.edu

See you soon!

 

 

 

 

1. GPH Student Affairs Survival Video (required, fun and new)

To provide you with a range of information that will guide you in your transition to NYU/GPH/NYC and maybe even the USA - our talented and creative Andrea Muraca created a video that contains vital information about the city, the university and the college.

We also created a GPH Student Affairs Survival Guide - linked below - providing you with all of the information in document format so that you can watch the video without having to write down the information as it is delivered.

Enjoy the video and let us know if it raises any additional questions for you!
