This website is intended for prospective part-time New York University Study Away Site lecturers, to provide information that may be helpful as you consider becoming part of the NYU community as a part-time faculty member.

Each NYU global site has its own unique identity, informed by local and national history, culture, and other factors. Instructors and courses at each global site have important relationships with the home academic departments at the NYU campuses in New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi. Local instructors at the global sites work closely with home academic departments to host courses that balance the rigor and expectations of home campuses, with an infusion of local culture.

Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging, Equity, and Access at NYU Global Sites

NYU is deeply committed to building and strengthening a university-wide culture of diversity, inclusion, and equity. Our Office of Global Inclusion leads many of these initiatives, including student centers, programming and events, and support and training for our community.  This work is supported by Global Inclusion Officers in every NYU school and unit.  NYU faculty and students create and share knowledge about diversity, equity, and inclusion through our academic programs including at the Study Away sites. 

Learn more about the commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the Office of Global Programs.

LGBTQ+ Community at NYU Global Sites

NYU is home to a robust LGBTQ+ community.  NYU’s LGBTQ+ Center offers programs, events, learning and development, support, and resources virtually to the Study Away sites, in addition to the sites’ own programs and resources.

Faculty, Staff, and Students with Disabilities

NYU prioritizes support for faculty, staff, and students with disabilities. The Disability, Inclusion, and Accessibility Working Group develops new policies to make NYU more accessible to members of the community who have disabilities, working in close coordination with the Office of Global Inclusion. 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 New York University, we embrace our urban identity and our global vision.  NYU is anchored in Greenwich Village in New York City--one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the US.  NYU also has degree-granting campuses in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai as well as 12 academic centers throughout the world.  In fact, NYU has more international students and more students studying abroad than any other US university. 

Mentoring and Leadership Development 

An important goal for NYU Global is to support our global faculty’s teaching. Through the Center for Faculty Advancement, global faculty may participate in TeachTalks, a series of faculty-led conversations about teaching at NYU. We are also proud to connect global faculty with the NYU Digital Studio to support media for teaching and learning. 

Health and Wellness

Your health matters to us. NYU offers resources to support wellness and self-care for our faculty.
