The Center for Faculty Advancement
The Center for Faculty Advancement connects and collaborates with the NYU community to recruit, retain, develop, and advance faculty whose scholarship, teaching and community engagement will positively impact the world. We accomplish this by providing knowledge, resources, mentoring, and engagement opportunities that prepare faculty to pursue their scholarly aspirations and meet key career milestones such as tenure, promotion and contract renewal. Through these and other services, we support the development of academic leaders and enable faculty to connect their work with communities across the globe. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In support of this mission, the Center for Faculty Advancement is partnering with Teaching, Learning & Technology (TLT) to offer a variety of resources to foster Learning Communities among NYU faculty and to support them in their teaching. We invite you to learn more about our programs and services below.
Teaching Consultations: Teaching a new class? Concerned about student participation? Eager to incorporate active learning or technology into your course? Whatever your pedagogical challenge or interest in enhancing your teaching practice, we offer all NYU instructors individual teaching consultations. We can help you clarify your learning goals to better design your course, identify effective strategies for student engagement, and ensure an inclusive environment in your classroom.
Consultants are available throughout the year to meet with faculty in-person or online. For individual teaching and design consultations, you can reach us at email@example.com
TeachTalks: The Office of the Provost and NYU IT are producing a series of pedagogy videos, or "TeachTalks," for global instructors. Each TeachTalk features an NYU instructor discussing topics such as active learning, teaching with technology, and incorporating local resources into courses.

The Center for Faculty Advancement has developed a series of Publishing Workshops where participants have had the opportunity to learn how to publish an academic book or a college textbook. This new initiative evolved in response to past participants’ feedback and their needs. Our goal is to provide NYU & FRN faculty members the support needed to advance their professional and pedagogical publication agendas. This particular workshop was 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.
