The Center for Faculty Advancement (CFA) provides dedicated resources that support faculty research, finding external resources to support research and opportunities for writing and publishing goals. Please check back often as we continue to add new resources and programming.


The mission of research at NYU is twofold: to educate its students, and to discover new knowledge through scholarship. These two missions enhance and inform one another: students at a research university in many instances are taught by the discoverers of the information being discussed in the course, and the classroom's free exchange of ideas can help sharpen research.

NYU’s faculty are at the forefront of their scholarly disciplines, and their research helps shape the understanding of an enormous range of academic fields: from the mathematical sciences to economics, from philosophy to neural science, from art history to sociology. Learn more about:


The Center for Faculty Advancement offers a number of resources designed to assist faculty as they work to develop and seek external funding for their research, write, publish and distribute their work to many audiences.

Publication and Writing Workshops

Publishing & Writing Workshops provide insight into, and hands on tools for navigating the writing and publishing process, whether that be producing a book manuscript, journal article, textbook or other publishing forms. Our goal is to provide faculty the support needed to advance their writing and publication agendas. Our current publication series focuses on book manuscripts and is led by Dr. Robert DiYanni, Adjunct Professor of Humanities, and Instructional Consultant for the Center for Faculty Advancement. Dr. DiYanni has published 40 books with major publishers including Random House, McGraw-Hill, Prentice-Hall, Pearson, and Princeton University Press.

Links to workshop recordings are available in the drop-down list of each event.
