Strategic Engagement ensures NYU Abu Dhabi’s continued engagement with connections built and opportunities identified locally and internationally.
Our purpose will be to lead the development, alignment, scheduling, production, and delivery of a comprehensive engagement plan that builds on and expands established and ongoing initiatives and activities.
Working with offices across campus, the UAE, and our global partners, we will provide creative input and strategic guidance in planning, tracking, and management of engagement opportunities.
The unit will identify new short and long-term opportunities, provide expertise in the identification and cultivation of strategic engagement opportunities, and lead the development and coordination of event details, logistics, and follow-up. The unit will also be key in the rollout of key messages, announcements, and event coverage.
Through our work with internal groups and external stakeholders, the Strategic Engagement Unit will help foster relationships and position the University as a leading global education institution.
