Global Network Representatives

The NYU School of Professional Studies Global Network Representative Program matches incoming international students with either a current international student from the same country or region, or with a domestic student. The Global Network Representative welcomes the new student and advises him/her on settling in, adjusting to life in New York City, and studying at NYU. This is a great opportunity for students to engage with their peers.

For new international students, a Global Network Representative is someone who can help them to understand the NYU system, life in New York and the United States, as well as make them feel more comfortable far from home. For continuing students, this is an opportunity to meet a fellow countryman, and to give back after benefitting from this program in the past. For domestic students, this is a chance to help someone to learn about another culture and to build connections with the global community.
