A supportive, dynamic environment
GSAS's long-term commitment to students begins with their acceptance into one of our graduate programs. The Office of Academic and Student Life plays a central role in coordinating the services and support graduate students may need. Services include internal and external funding opportunities, dissertation support, and graduate student educational development. The office is also the liaison for counseling, issues of concern to students of color, international student services, academic computing and technology issues, healthcare and insurance, and career development.
The office is a source of information and support for GSAS dissertations through the publication of formatting, checklists, and guidelines, and is responsible for the final deposit of dissertations. Other publications include On the Square, a bimonthly update of GSAS news and events, Bobst and Beyond: A Guide to Graduate Research in New York City, and, with the Vice Dean's Office, the GSAS Student Handbook.
