'Swipe it forward' and 'temporary visas' arrangements for international students
During its meeting, the NYU Student Government discussed its swipe it forward programme for free meals and temporary visas.

Swipe it forward, a food donation initiative that enables students to request a free meal swipe at chosen dining halls has received 470 donations since its launch this semester, of which the students have used 457 as of this time. An online donation option may also be added to this swipe it forward, an NYU programme, as was mentioned at a recent meeting of the student government assembly.

The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs was also discussed further by the student government, with some participants arguing that the bureau lacks the capacity to focus more on student visas. The letter was to be sent to the bureau regarding extensions and renewals of temporary visas for international students. It was intended to alleviate wait times of up to 400 days for non-immigrant student visas, however, the letter was ultimately not passed.

Further, The Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors and Science Act of 2022, which allots $280 billion over ten years for scientific research, received support from another resolution. The statement lauded the law’s support for science and technology education and its acknowledgement of graduate researchers.
