Jane Acton

Jane is the Associate Director for Faculty and Scholar Services. She leads the Scholar Advising Team, located in the Nash Building, that serves the Morningside and Manhattanville campus schools. They work with academic departments in bringing international faculty and researchers to the university and overseeing their stay.

The scholar team is responsible for the university's compliance with the J-1 Exchange Visitor program for researchers, professors and student interns, and files nonimmigrant petitions with USCIS (Citizenship and Immigration and Services) for other visa types used by our academic community.

They provide orientation programs for J-1 scholars and workshops and one-on-one training for department staff members with whom they work.
