Academic Affairs

The Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs provides leadership to ensure academic excellence throughout the University. The Senior Vice Provost has responsibility for leading undergraduate curriculum development for the Global Network University, particularly for NYU Shanghai, as well as NYU Madrid, and for University-wide educational initiatives that include teaching technology, cross-school curricula, and multi-school programs. At Washington Square, the Senior Vice Provost chairs the Faculty Committee on the Future of Technology-Enhanced Education at NYU, the Undergraduate Program Committee, the Undergraduate Academic Affairs Committee, and the Faculty Fellows in Residence Committee. He also convenes regular meetings of the Undergraduate Deans.

Under the leadership of the Vice Provost for Faculty, Arts, Humanities and Diversity, the Office of the Provost at NYU works closely with the deans of the 14 schools with graduate programs as well as the Office of Student Life to ensure a first-class education and academic experience for our 20,000 graduate students. Prospective, new, and returning students can visit the NYU Graduate Student website to learn about NYU's extraordinary range of academic programs and to find out how to enrich their lives while in one of the most vibrant cities in the world. 

The Senior Vice Provost for Global Faculty Development is responsible for academic planning and faculty hiring strategies, particularly at NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai. The Senior Vice Provost also oversees the Office of Faculty Resources - including The Center for Advancement in Teaching and Faculty Resource Network - the Curricular Development Challenge Fund, and the Distinguished Teaching Awards program.
