New York University Shanghai (NYU Shanghai) is jointly established by New York University and East China Normal University of Shanghai. It was the first American college to receive independent registration status from China's Ministry of Education.[1] While classes are in English, some proficiency in Chinese is required for graduation.[2]

History

The school opened to students in September 2013.[3] Of the class of 294 students, 51% came from The People's Republic of China, with the remaining 49% coming from other countries around the world.[4] During the 2013–2014 academic year, NYU Shanghai students studied at East China Normal University while the official NYU campus in Pudong was built.[5] The Pudong campus was completed in the summer of 2014. Students moved into the new building at the start of the fall 2014 semester. Currently, the NYU Shanghai campus in Pudong serves NYU Shanghai students, study abroad students from New York, Abu Dhabi, and non-NYU affiliated colleges in other countries, as well as a number of NYU law students.

In 2018, the university introduced a "civic education” course at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party.[6] The annual two-week course, executed during the University's Christmas break every year, is required for all Chinese passport holders attending NYU Shanghai.[6]

NYU Shanghai's logo is adapted from NYU's torch logo, using the top half of the torch to form the petals of a magnolia flower, the official flower of Shanghai. The logo is meant to represent NYU's footing in Shanghai.[7]

Administration

Yu Lizhong, former president of the East China Normal University (ECNU), was named Chancellor of NYU Shanghai. Jeffrey S. Lehman, former president of Cornell University and dean of the University of Michigan Law School, was named Vice Chancellor.[8][9] Yu Lizhong also served as Party Committee Secretary of the university.[10]

Since late summer of 2014, NYU Shanghai has been based in Pudong, Shanghai, at 1555 Century Ave. The main campus is contained in a single building, the Academic Center, a new 15-story building with two underground floors.[11] On May 30, 2019, the groundbreaking ceremony was held for the new campus building in Qiantan. The Qiantan campus building will also be located in Pudong, and is being designed and built by architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF). The design features four buildings arranged in a pinwheel shape reminiscent of NYU Shanghai's logo, that are connected as one building above the fifth floor. The university hopes to move up to 4,000 undergraduate and graduate students into the new campus by 2022.[12]

NYU Shanghai has three dormitories, two of which are in Shanghai's Jinqiao, and one in Aidongcun neighborhood, which are north and south of the campus respectively. Both are also located within Pudong. Students travel between the Academic Center and the dorms via the subway or on NYU shuttle buses.[13] There is also an academic library that offers virtual and in-person reference services.
