Coordinator, Student Advocacy and Compliance
The student advocate works with students experiencing a variety of problems, and will either help with the resolution of issues or will redirect you to a different office or person. If you have any paperwork, please bring that with you when you come to the office.
Office Location: Dibner Hall Room LC 240C
It is important for instructors to know when you are experiencing an issue that might interfere with your studies. However, it is also important that your personal matters be kept confidential. Therefore, the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs is the office designated to receive documentation regarding private concerns. An official verification notice must be sent to instructors, but this notice does not share personal details.
If illness or an accident causes you to miss a class (or classes) or and an exam, you should do the following:
When you have missed an exam, as in the case of a prolonged absence, please check your paperwork before leaving your doctor’s office, and be sure it includes a diagnosis, and an estimate of the length of your absence. Without proper documentation Ms. Simonsen will not be able to intervene on your behalf.
The School of Engineering’s policy requires students provide Ms. Simonsen with both written notification 15 days in advance of the days to be taken off and with the e-mail contact for your professors, so they can be given notice of the absence.
If you have safety concerns, or witness a disturbance to the campus community, please report the incident to the New York University Department of Public Safety.
