Each year, the Faculty Resource Network accepts applications from faculty members who are interested in being a University Associate for the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. The application may be completed on our website. Please note the due dates listed on the application. Applications received after the submission deadline for one semester will be held over until the following semester.
Each application must be accompanied by a brief narrative outlining the intent of their scholarly activity or their curricular development plan, along with current curriculum vitae. The proposal must describe the research or curriculum development that would be advanced by the Associate's tenure at NYU. It should also indicate specific ways in which the faculty member would benefit as a scholar and a teacher, and ways which the project would enhance the academic life of the home institution. Once an application is completed online, an email will be sent to your institution's Liaison Officer for approval.
Please note the deadlines on the application form. Applications received after the due date, or not complete by the due date, will be held over until the following semester. For University Associates wishing to renew their participation in this program, a brief outline of project status and university resources used must be sent to the Liaison Officer and copied to the Faculty Resource Network offices before the renewal of privileges can be processed.
The application deadlines for Summer 2015, Fall 2015, and Spring 2016 are:
- Wednesday, April 22, 2015 for the Summer (Monday, May 25, 2015 - Friday, August 14, 2015) and Fall 2015 term (Tuesday, September 1, 2015 - Friday, December 18, 2015); Friday, September 18, 2015 for the Spring 2016 term (Monday, January 25, 2016 - Friday, May 13, 2016).
Applicants may apply for one or more semesters listed. However, continued library and course auditing access will be renewed only upon receipt of the report on the previous semester's activities. (Should your application be received after the deadline for the semester requested, it will be processed for the following semester.
