New York University (NYU) hosts Dr Birgit Schreiber​


Dr Birgit Schreiber, Director of the Centre for Student Support Services, was invited to visit New York University in February 2014 to share her insights on the professional development of Student Affairs from a South African perspective. During her visit, Dr Schreiber addressed both staff and students on best practices to create enabling learning environments which are supportive and developmental for the range of students’ potentials.

Prof Teboho Moja, who extended the invitation  to Dr Schreiber indicated that New York University was keenly interested to not only expand students’ international experience abroad, but to also to internationalise their student life locally at NYU Manhattan and at their portal sites in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai.

According to Dr Schreiber, South Africa is at the cutting edge of synthesising the artificial and historical gap between student and academic affairs. The articulated integration of these domains contributes significantly to the promotion of institutional and student goals.

Dr Birgit Schreiber and Prof Teboho Moja  have established  a collaborative research initiative  to continue to explore the  ambit,  role and function  of Student Affairs higher education  globally.​
