NYU Abu Dhabi
NYU's agreement with the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to create NYU Abu Dhabi is the outcome of a shared understanding of the essential roles and challenges of higher education in the 21st century: a common belief in the value of a liberal arts education, concurrence on the benefits a research university brings to the society that sustains it, a conviction that interaction with new ideas and people who are different is valuable and necessary, and a commitment to educating students who are true citizens of the world. NYU AD is the first comprehensive liberal arts and science campus in the Middle East to be operated abroad by a major American research university.
NYU Abu Dhabi is a highly selective liberal arts college, and a world center for advanced research and scholarship — all fully integrated with each other and connected to NYU in New York. Together, NYU New York and NYU Abu Dhabi form the backbone of a unique Global Network University, with faculty and students from New York and Abu Dhabi spending "semesters away" at one or more of NYU's study abroad sites on five continents.
