Programs and Events


Faculty Resource Network programs and events are offered year-round, and serve to provide faculty from member institutions with a broad range of faculty development opportunities, including intensive summer seminars, longer research residencies, lunchtime lectures, panel discussions, national symposia, and more.

About Us

The Faculty Resource Network (FRN) at New York University is an award-winning professional development initiative that sponsors programs for faculty members from a consortium of over 50 colleges and universities. The Network hosts lectures, symposia, and intensive seminars, all of which are designed to improve the quality of teaching and learning at its member and affiliate institutions.

Now in our fourth decade in operation, our mission remains clear: to foster connection, collaboration, and collegiality through a partnership of colleges and universities dedicated to faculty development. Our programs and events meet the professional development needs of all faculty at our member institutions.
