The Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement and Engagement designs programs and initiatives to enhance skills important for success as a faculty member and to promote connections between members of our community. Programs range from workshops focused on specific skills, such as grant applications, to inclusive approaches to leadership, mentoring, awards to develop professional skills and networks and writing & productivity initiatives. Programs are open to all with an NYUAD faculty appointment.
NYUAD faculty are world class researchers and scholars, devoted teachers and mentors, and are extraordinarily dedicated to the service of the institution and their disciplines. We are proud to announce the inaugural NYUAD Faculty Awards. These awards honor distinction in teaching, university service, and research.
Faculty excellence in scholarship, teaching, and service is a core value of NYUAD. To enhance the capacity of our faculty in these areas, the NYUAD Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement and Engagement solicits applications from all standing NYUAD faculty for the Summer Scholar Awards.
This award will provide financial support for faculty seeking professional development opportunities at high-impact programs offered through a select number of institutes during the summer months.
Do you know what 3rd year review entails? Have questions about the timeline for contract renewal or tenure? Do you know what a faculty review committee is? In this session, you will learn about how faculty advance at NYUAD and will hear from fellow faculty who can provide their own perspective and experience with this process. Separate sessions will be held for continuing contract faculty and tenured/tenure track faculty. All standing faculty for whom these are relevant are added to the calendar invites for these events.
This monthly lunchtime series is geared for faculty members. The topics are related to career development and the interactive sessions are intended to provide information, skills, and guidance on a range of issues that impact faculty career advancement. Sessions also provide an opportunity for faculty to engage with campus leadership, administrators, and peers on topics relevant to thriving as a faculty member at NYUAD
We have launched a series of Virtual Workshops to accommodate remote working. These are a series of short videos from experts in each of the topics as well as useful resources relevant to NYUAD faculty members. Topics include “Publishing and Article: The Editor’s Viewpoint”, “Teaching at NYUAD: The Student’s Perspective” and “Get Together! Strategies for Successful Collaborations”
Advice, feedback and support is key to faculty development at all stages. This program is intended to provide a structure for informal guidance on career development, with the aim of enhancing success and achievement of academic excellence for the entire NYUAD faculty.
