|New York University Shanghai (NYUSH)|
New York University Shanghai (NYU Shanghai) is the third degree-granting campus established by New York University, after New York City and Abu Dhabi, in partnership with East China Normal University of Shanghai. It is the first American university to receive independent registration status from China's Ministry of Education.
Yu Lizhong, former president of the East China Normal University (ECNU), was named Chancellor of NYU Shanghai. Jeffrey Lehman, former president of Cornell University and dean of the University of Michigan Law School, was named Vice Chancellor.
The inaugural class of 2017 moved in on August 11, 2013, and classes began in September of 2013. Of the class of 294 students, 51% came from The People's Republic, while 49% came internationally. During the 2013-2014 academic year the inaugural class, and any students studying abroad at NYU Shanghai, will be staying at East China Normal University while the official campus in Pudong is being built. The Pudong campus is to be completed in the Summer of 2014. Students will move into the new building for the start of the fall 2014 semester.
Starting in the late summer of 2014, NYU Shanghai will be based in Pudong, Shanghai, at 111 Century Ave. The Academic Center, a new 15 story building with three underground floors, is set to be completed in Summer 2014. The dorms will be renovated from purchased apartment blocks approximately a fifteen minute walk away from the academic building, but with NYU-specific shuttles running in between.
