Our faculty are a highly diverse group of dedicated teachers, innovative and creative researchers, and inspired scholars. We welcome back those who have been with us before and those who are joining us for the first time. Those of us in university administration, your fellow faculty, and the NYUAD students are all looking forward to meeting you.
The Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement and Engagement and the Office of Academic Appointments collaborate to create an inclusive, informative, and thorough orientation to being a faculty member at NYUAD. Through a bespoke Faculty Orientation Session, we provide all the material needed in a paced fashion to be sure all new faculty are fully prepared for starting the semester.
A series of live orientation sessions before the start of the semester to provide key information and answer questions about onboarding and preparing for teaching and launching research. During the first semester on board, there are sessions that help new faculty learn the skills and information needed to thrive at NYUAD. In addition, the Hilary Ballon Center for Teaching and Learning hosts a series of workshops each semester to advance excellent and inclusive pedagogy.
The schedule, details, and materials related to each stage of the orientation journey are found on the Faculty Orientation Page on the faculty and staff intranet.
