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.


The next activities of the Faculty Resource Network (FRN) of New York University (NYU) are presented below. The participation of the faculty in these activities is of great intellectual and professional benefit for our professors and also helps the University in its function of providing professional development opportunities to our faculty. Professors who wish to stay informed about the FRN can subscribe to the Listserver at http://www.nyu.edu/frn.
