Faculty Advancement and Engagement

The Office for Faculty Advancement and Engagement develops and implements strategies and programs so that all faculty can excel as scholars, teachers, and impactful members of the academic community.

We are committed to inclusive excellence as the foundation for innovation.  The faculty at NYUAD come from diverse disciplines, backgrounds, and life experiences, and we aim to be highly inclusive and to create a sense of belonging so that all faculty members can thrive.
