19 UP Safety
To access 19UP you must upload proof of vaccination, complete the daily screener, and swipe your id card at the door. Please be sure to wear a mask at all times except for behind the closed doors of your office. As per university guidance, eating and drinking are not permitted in any common areas on campus. Faculty may eat behind closed doors of their individual office.
In-Person Staff Hours
NYU has adjusted its policy on telecommuting for the upcoming academic year. As such, the department's full time staff has transitioned to a blended in-person/telework schedule. A.M. Wild will be in-office Monday through Wednesday and Deirdre Collins will be in-office Wednesday through Friday.
Faculty Office Hours
Faculty may hold in-person office hours at their discretion if 7 feet of space can be maintained between attendees. However, we recommend that office hours be held remotely through the Fall semester.
As a reminder, our department uses google appointments, a method that allows students to book open appointments during specific times set by you via your google calendar. Any booked appointments appear immediately and can be edited or adjusted as needed. For directions and tips on how to use this easy feature, please watch the tutorial and/or visit the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJ97hx8-mdA.

Undergraduate Office Assistant
We have one new student office assistant for this academic year, Mathew Reyes Lee, a current CL major. As a reminder, please reach out to either Deirdre or me if you have specific tasks for our student office assistant. This will help us track their day to day workload. Matt will be available in-office on Thursdays from 12:30pm to 3:000pm and on Friday's from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
Graduate Student Assistants
We have two returning Graduate Assistants this academic year. Santiago Ospina-Celis will be returning as the Poetics & Theory Program Assistant and Michael Ernst will resume his role as Graduate Student Events Coordinator and Newsletter Coordinator Extraordinaire.
