NYU's global network consists of three degree-granting Portal campuses - New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai - and 11 Global Sites - Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Madrid, Paris, Prague, Sydney, Tel Aviv, and Washington DC. The global network offers NYU faculty an unparalleled range of international and multi-disciplinary opportunities for research, teaching, and scholarly collaboration.
As the global network continues to evolve and play an important role in contributing to NYU's academic mission, and in response to suggestions from two key faculty committees, the University created part-time faculty leadership roles related to global academic and faculty planning and conducted open searches to fill them. Coming out of that process, senior faculty members from five schools have taken on these roles.
Gbenga and Marianne bring a strong faculty perspective to academic planning for study away programs across the global network. Gbenga is focused on graduate program development and research at the global sites, while Marianne is focused on undergraduate academic development and programming at the sites.
