Collaboration with the UAE community and contribution to the priorities of the UAE are at the heart of New York University Abu Dhabi’s engagement principles. Modelling the NYU traditions of “in and of the city,” NYUAD seeks to contribute to and advance Abu Dhabi's transformation into one of the next great idea capitals, a magnetic center of ideas, education, and talent.
