I will possibly find myself involved in various programs outside the classroom which may include arts, media, cooking, culture, religion, recreation, technology, sports and athletics. I can even get the opportunity to join the student clubs and as a fact there are more than 50 clubs at NYU-AD. Or I could even create my own club to go out into the community and find myself involved in various service oriented activities. NYU-AD is also home for multidisciplinary labs and research centers. NYU can prepare me for the challenges and opportunities of this interconnected world. In addition to that, it creates a unique capacity for student to access the facilities at the entire university
With headlines of the nation’s press predicting the new academic year to be one of greater turmoil than 1967-1968, with the intelligence activities of college administrations indicating that the press is not crying “wolf,” I think that all of us concerned with the educational enterprise must pause for a sobering view of the academic year…
What informs the decisions trustees make? What public purposes guide the president, faculty and staff in their daily activities? How would the trustees and the public know that the institution’s resources are strategically arrayed to achieve the goals? Colleges and faculty can too easily be accused of being knee-jerk protectors of the status quo. A robust, shared, operating vision for the college helps to make clear how the public interest, not personal interests, determine the steps that the college
In the organization that I work at, the Academic Enhancement Center, which is part of Saint Francis College. The center was created in 2003 is to provide academic and skills tutoring to undergraduates at the college. The core objectives of the AEC are to help students gained confidence in themselves, enhance their skills, help them succeed in their studies and retain current students. However, the academic enhancement center must complete with other organizations within the college for financial resources and other assets to run efficiently. In part four of Artistry Choice, & Leadership Reframing Organizations, states that power is crucial in central political thinking. In St. Francis College, power is centralized in the office of the president, then distributed down to the provost of the college, which is subsequently divided by the deans. In the academic enhancement center, assistant dean Monica Michalski is in charge of the Academic Enhancement Center. Dean Michalski however, supervises the Office of Freshman Studies that assists first year undergraduate students making the transition to college as smoothly
The plan outlines five goals that we have found for our school district. These goals show our commitment to provide the highest possible standards of education for all students in our district and to ensure the fair and equitable treatment of all members of our community. We consider understanding individual differences in each student and teacher so that we can adopt the appropriate programs of study for them of the utmost importance.
The diversity at Hofstra is commendable as people from all walks of life contribute to the intricate community at Union, which invariably is a learning curve for the student as the student is exposed to a dynamic environment. I am inspiring to apply to the Frank G. Zarb school of business. One of the main reasons why I am applying to Hofstra is the fact that very few schools offer the major of my choice – Accounting. Hofstra has one of the most renowned Accounting programs which are accredited from the AACSB as well, which attests to how well Hofstra prepares its graduates for today’s global business environment. The Frank G. Zarb business school has won many accolades and having award winning teachers under Hofstra’s belt, no doubt, Hofstra provides world class education. Having one of the largest and most technologically advanced academic facilities in the country, Hofstra provides its graduates with the most top notch education. Over 30,000 successful Zarb alumni, bestow invaluable connections leading to prestigious internships and full time positions. Moreover, when you are living in New York, a thousand opportunities are waiting for graduates just around the corner. Hofstra offers a vibrant campus with hundreds of social, academic, and cultural events per year. Offering dynamic programs with up to 200 student run organizations to provide a diverse college experience, Hofstra University enriches the student’s college experience beyond the classroom as well. With so much to offer, I envision myself at studying in
As I type these words there are only 20 days until October 1st, AKA, ICD-10 transition day. Most people in the healthcare industry are wondering what that day will be like. What will happen? What will they have to do?
“You are at the #1 public university in the world,” are the words implanted into the University of California, Berkeley. UC Berkeley is defined as #1 for its programs, history, faculty, environment, and prospective influences but ultimately, what defines UC Berkeley are its students. Through the impact its students make and the legacies they leave, a high level of prestige has been established when discussing the university. Another aspect of the university that engenders prestige is the admission process, which is set in place to assess who would best “fit” the university. A project done in 1999 that produced a film called “Making the Grade,” observes two students from two different school dynamics in San Francisco that both want to attend

In the article, “Colleges Adapt to New Kinds of Students from Abroad,” Karin Fischer (2011) explains the increase of foreign students in U.S. universities leads to make more problems in campus and how universities are trying to overcome those problems and help foreign students to adapt to campus. Fischer explains the increase of the foreign undergraduate students due to the support from foreign governments. Fischer quotes Wesley Young, the director of services for international students and scholars at the University of California at Davis, to discuss that the increase of foreign undergraduate students especially requires more care and help than graduate students. While older students know what they need to do and what to do in U.S. university,

Syracuse University is an outstanding place of higher education. It provides a diverse, stimulating, and exciting classroom, and one that truly teaches its students how to live a life of value. Syracuse’s level of diversity promotes understanding and tolerance in all, helping to eliminate racism and religious intolerance in its student body. Its stimulation helps to encourage its students to “always seek the light of truth,” as the words of the High School National Honor Society pledge echo. Students are always encouraged by the university to expand their knowledge, and to never stop learning. The feeling of enthusiasm on campus, provided not only in the classroom, but also through Syracuse’s wide selection of on-campus activities, such as Division I athletics, clubs, and service organizations, teaches students to seek opportunities to live a full and meaningful life. This is what I truly hope for my life, and Syracuse University can help me become
Faculty and administration coming together on one accord in support of an agreed upon mission is key to success. The article speaks about how the university of UNC worked together to come up with a classroom space problem they were having trying to accommodate the growing student population. The faculty worked on a schedule and the administration was able to provide funding needed to pay for technology upgrades rather than spending it on a new building, which resulted in saving the university $800,000 (Denneen, 2012). In addition, keeping in mind that each faculty member and administrator must share accountability and understand his or her role in this process or it can ultimately fall
