The NYU Steinhardt Office of Global Affairs provides leadership and strategic planning to ensure that appropriate administrative infrastructure and services are in place to optimally support faculty, international programs, students, scholars, and initiatives.
We are responsible for the following areas for NYU Steinhardt:
- Support for faculty global research and opportunities for international teaching and professional development
- Oversight of international partnerships and agreements for exchange, research, training, joint degrees, and executive education
- Graduate-level study abroad and global research support
- Undergraduate curriculum development at NYU's global academic centers and support of study abroad opportunities, including the Dean's global honors seminars
- Internationalization of Steinhardt in New York City, including support for curriculum development, on-campus events, and international collaborations
The Steinhardt strategic plan has identified the following goal for our global engagement: "Steinhardt leads the University in integrating global experiences and cosmopolitan perspectives in research, teaching, and the arts."
- Design strategic global programs of study and work that are intentionally aligned with the foci of the various departments of the school
- Foster research on the global learning experience and support global partnerships and collaborations that will lead to the generation of new knowledge
- Increase students’ understanding of and participation in global learning experiences, both in New York City and abroad
- Facilitate collaboration among faculty and students with shared global interests, including bi-directional exchange
- Increase awareness and disseminate initiatives and activities of global work, research, and curriculum
- Lead the University in the integration and use of technology, including online communities – to co-teach across the University; to keep students better connected to NYU in New York when they are abroad, and connect faculty at NYU to study away sites; and to reach outside of the University into the field, taking research into practice at the global sites
