Step 7: UNDERSTAND THE ADVISEMENT PROCESS
NYU Wagner encourages you to seek guidance from multiple sources throughout your academic career. Just as no single mentor can fulfill all of a developing professional's needs, you will receive richer and more valuable advice from multiple advisors.
Advisement begins with the online Curricular and Academic Policies Webinar on July 14.
During the summer, you will be assigned to a Peer Advisor, who will be a guide for you and a group of your classmates. Your Peer Advisor will contact you by email.
Your assigned Faculty Advisor is the EMPA Faculty Director, Professor Gordon Campbell. He will offer advice about making the most of the academic programs here at Wagner. You will have the opportunity to meet him at the EMPA Welcome Reception and at the Student/Faculty Reception at the beginning of the semester. While Gordon Campbell will serve as your primary advisor, you should seek advisement from a range of professors throughout your time at NYU Wagner, depending on your interests.
