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:

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
