Lead. Participate. Grow.
There's so much to do at NYU College of Dentistry. In addition to the opportunity to participate in over 30 student-driven clubs and organizations that celebrate volunteerism, culture, ethnicity, language, music, activism, art and dance, there are leadership opportunities such as Student Government and Student Peer Review Board.
The Student Government is the overarching student body representation at NYU Dentistry. This group is made up of students from across all four class years, who are elected by their peers to serve as the student voice and liaisons between the student body, faculty, and administration. Under the guidance and support of the Office of Student Affairs & Academic Support Services, the Student Government approves new student clubs and organizations, delegates funds to support student club initiatives and programs, works closely with the senior administration, faculty, and four class councils to assess and develop responses to emerging student needs, and strives to build community and promote a positive, ethical learning environment in partnership with the leadership of the College.
The Peer Review Board (PRB) is a student-led, College-wide organization which gives our students the opportunity to function under their own review panel, learn to identify unethical behaviors within their class, and take responsibility for handling these infractions. At the same time, the PRB fosters an environment that values working relationships and promotes the idea that unethical behavior hurts not only the guilty party but also everyone in a shared profession.

The Office of Student Affairs & Academic Support Services places a high priority on offering students an exceptional co-curricular experience to support their learning and development as exceptional dental professionals. The College offers more than 40 student clubs and organizations to foster an environment that promotes community, professional development, ethical leadership, and creative interests. Below is a listing of our student clubs and organizations. The NYU Dentistry Student Government approves new student clubs and organizations, and delegates funds to support student club initiatives and programs each year. Students interested in starting a new club or organization are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Affairs & Academic Support Services (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn about the "New Club in Development" application and approval process.
