Student Life & Services

The Office of Student Life & Services (SLS) supports the School of Engineering's academic mission by enhancing students’ education through a range of programs that build intrapersonal, professional, emotional, and other essential life skills. We work in partnership with academic, support, and service departments to tailor our activities to students’ needs. Our programs work to address emerging issues, develop student leadership excellence, promote and foster campus community citizenship, foster campus-wide diversity awareness, and provide general student advocacy. Additionally, SLS partners with external stakeholders from corporations, not-for-profits, startups, and educational institutions to programmatically enhance the professional development of students and to fulfill diversity pipeline objectives.

Student Leadership and Engagement

The mission of the NYU School of Engineering Office of Student Leadership and Engagement is to support the academic goals of the School by providing services and programs designed to enhance and maximize students’ co-curricular educational opportunities. All programs and services are designed and implemented with the aim of creating a rich educational environment, infused with the core values of community engagement and civic responsibility, diversity, and cultural competency, innovation and creative thinking, interpersonal and leadership development, and connection to the global network university.

Student Life Diversity

Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging and Equity Initiatives

Office of Student Life & Services at Tandon is committed to supporting the diversity mission of New York University “to embrace diversity among faculty, staff and students to ensure a wide range of perspectives.” NYU Tandon students reflect the diversity of the world and we have a responsibility to provide and sustain a safe and affirming environment. Our office seeks to create spaces that promote social justice through open and considerate dialogue and where differences are embraced, valued and celebrated. To that end, students will find a variety of opportunities to participate in activities, programs and trainings that allow them to live, learn and grow as global citizens that contribute to the development of a better world. Our Student Affairs hallmark events, the Diversity in STEM and Women in STEM Summits, each happen once an academic year and provide a hands-on day-long experience for students to engage with these issues through workshops, panels, and keynote events.
