NYU has never thought of itself as a gated community. It has always encouraged its students to think of themselves as participants in and shapers of a complex and changing environment. Indeed, part of NYU’s teaching mission consists in preparing students for lives in a diverse world, and faculty at NYU believe that such preparation is most effective when the outside world is not held at bay. This same principle holds true as we create a Global Network University that is both “in and of the city” and “in and of the world.”
Our locations beyond the main portal campus in New York City include NYU Abu Dhabi, TischAsia in Singapore, NYU Law in Singapore, and 10 academic sites in Accra, Ghana; Berlin, Germany, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Florence, Italy; London, England; Madrid, Spain; Paris, France; Prague, the Czech Republic; Shanghai, China; and Tel Aviv, Israel.
Direct exchange programs with 12 distinguished partner institutions, 27 summer session locations, an ever-changing roster of intersession programming offered by NYU’s various schools, colleges, and programs, and curriculum-driven initiatives expand the global network—from Beijing to Johannesburg, Santiago to Vienna.
Around the world, students work closely with faculty and with their peers on shared commitments. They apply what they learn and develop the skills and qualities—both needed and expected in this increasingly integrated, global climate—to make a real difference in the world.
Educating students as international citizens is part of New York University's global mission, and the University has established a wide range of initiatives both in the United States and abroad to facilitate the exchange of knowledge across international boundaries.
NYU offers fully-staffed academic centers in 10 countries, exchange partnerships with some of the world's most prestigious universities in 18 countries, short-term summer programs in 17 countries, and specialized learning programs like film directing and nursing. NYU currently operates nine programs during the academic year in Accra, Ghana; Berlin, Germany; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Florence, Italy; London, England; Madrid, Spain; Paris, France; Prague, the Czech Republic; Shanghai, China; and Tel Aviv, Israel.

The academic priorities and direction of NYU's Global Programs are overseen by faculty with related research interests that offer advice and counsel to the Provost and Vice Provost.
Faculty with research interests or affinities to a particular region are invited to serve on a Global Faculty Affinity Group. These committees guide the development of new program initiatives and propose enhancements to existing course offerings at the NYU Global Sites. Affinity Groups offer the NYU faculty significant involvement in the management and direction of the NYU programs abroad, ensuring that the Sites meet their research needs and those of their students. Additionally, the Affinity Groups offer advice on the creation of new programs and sites, assist with curriculum review and assessment, and actively participate in the planning process for new campuses abroad.
Each year, the Fulbright Scholar Program looks for a wide range of scholars and professionals to represent the United States abroad.
