Why Join the NYU Faculty?
The NYU family is a dynamic, diverse, global network of colleagues who push the boundaries of academia and define what it means to be a truly global institution. We’re excited you’re considering becoming part of the NYU faculty community and hope this information will give you insight into our culture and the benefits of joining us.
Global Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging, Equity and Access (GIDBEA)
NYU is deeply committed to building and strengthening a university-wide culture of global inclusion, diversity, belonging, equity, and access (GIDBEA). Our Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation leads many of these initiatives, including the operation of student centers, programming and events, and support and training for our community. The Global Inclusion Officers Council, composed of appointed officers from every NYU school and unit, supports this work. NYU faculty and students create and share knowledge about GIDBEA through our academic programs and research centers and initiatives.

Support for Families
We recognize that the success of our faculty depends on the well-being of their families. Therefore, the welfare, health, and safety of all our faculty and their families come first. Faculty are encouraged to contact NYU Work Life for information and resources tied to child care and schools and adult care.
LGBTQ+ Community at NYU and in NYC
New York City has one of the country’s largest and most diverse LGBTQ+ communities. NYU is committed to fostering safe, inclusive, and open environments for our entire NYU community, particularly our robust LGBTQ+ community based in New York City and across our international campuses and sites. NYU’s LGBTQ+ Center offers programs, events, learning and development workshops, support, and resources to the university community. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center, located near the NYU Washington Square campus, is a good place to learn more about the city’s wider LGBTQ+ community.
Faculty, Staff, and Students with Disabilities
NYU prioritizes support for faculty, staff, and students with disabilities. Working in close coordination with the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation, the Disabilities, Inclusion and Accessibility Working Group develops new policies to make NYU more accessible to members of the community who have disabilities. NYU’s Office of Equal Opportunity addresses requests for disability accommodations from faculty and staff. And the Moses Center for Student Accessibility provides accommodations and additional programs and resources for students.
Proudly Urban, Truly Global
At NYU, we embrace our urban identity and our global vision. Our dynamic global network fosters rich connections among our truly international community, and encourages the flow of ideas and opportunity. We are anchored in Greenwich Village in New York City—one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the country. NYU also has degree-granting campuses in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai as well as 12 academic centers and programs throughout the world. In fact, NYU hosts more international students and sends more students to study abroad than any other US university. As a faculty member, you can tap into NYU’s global presence to support your research through travel fellowships, global research institutes, and support for international visiting research colleagues.
Mentoring and Leadership Development
Our goal is to help NYU faculty members realize their full potential. The Early Career Faculty Institute offers coaching and support for new faculty members. Additional resources to enhance faculty success include mentoring and professional development programs from the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation and mentoring and leadership opportunities through the Center for Faculty Advancement. Additional initiatives are offered at many NYU schools and departments.
Health and Wellness
We care about the health and wellness of our faculty. NYU offers excellent health benefits, and provides resources to support faculty mental health, wellness and self-care, and the successful integration of work life and personal life. As a faculty member, you can also access NYU’s athletic facilities and receive discounts at local gyms and fitness studios. And, of course, all can enjoy the city’s wonderful parks and green spaces and its many cultural and recreational opportunities.
NYU Libraries is a world-class nexus of information that advances teaching, learning, research, and scholarly inquiry in an environment dedicated to the open exchange of information. Our faculty have direct access to robust in-person and online resources to further the success of their students’ as well as their own professional academic endeavors. Our collections hold 6 million print volumes, more than 2 million e-books, 50,000 journals, and 1,350 research databases. Our collections reflect our mission and values, specifically our formal commitments to diversity and inclusion and anti-racism.
