Support for Research at NYU
In recent years, NYU has invested in six main areas of growth for our research enterprise, spanning the wide array of faculty strengths at the University.
Expand the six areas below for relevant links.
The Tandon School of Engineering houses NYU's Center for Cybersecurity, which is dedicated to training the next generation of cybersecurity professionals and to shaping the public discourse and policy landscape on issues of technology and security.
The College of Arts and Science is now forming its third research center, the Center for Quantum Phenomena. Research in CQP will be focused on condensed matter and atomic, molecular, and optical physics, as well as their applications to material science, atomic and molecular spectroscopy, nonlinear optics, and quantum information technology.
Various schools, centers, and institutes across the University are finding creative ways to educate a diverse generation of STEM scholars.
- STEM at the College of Arts and Science
- K-12 STEM Education at the Tandon School
- Summer Youth STEM (SYSTEM) at the Steinhardt School
- STEM Week at NYU Shanghai
Strategies to Reduce Inequality
In 2020, NYU launched its Cross-Cutting Initiative on Inequality. CCII is developing the next generation of scholars to understand and combat inequality, collaborating with other universities and partners in government, business and nonprofits to foster commitment to social impact.
Resources for Research
NYU continually seeks to strengthen its environment for research, scholarship, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
To stimulate faculty innovation and support their research and scholarship, the University administers a wide range of challenge programs and seed funds that are available on a competitive basis from a variety of institutional sources. Support is available for multi-disciplinary and inter-school projects, curriculum development, research, entrepreneurship, and the development of "mega grant proposals"; a number of funds are additionally reserved for the support of junior faculty.
NYU’s global network offers additional singular opportunities for faculty (and graduate students) through its research institutes of NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai, the Global Research Initiatives program, and the Global Institute for Advanced Study.
Steinhardt's Tara McAllister On the Challenges of the "r" Sound
Like the poet Amanda Gorman, Provost Fleming had her own childhood difficulties with the "r" sound. Recently, the Provost spoke to Tara McAllister and other speech pathology researchers at NYU Steinhardt about ongoing research on this topic.
