Faculty Resource Network

Semester Scholar-in-Residence Program

The Semester Scholar-in-Residence program allows Network faculty who are either on leave or sabbatical from their home institution to come to New York University to engage in research, develop curricula, and/or produce manuscripts for publication during the Fall or Spring semester. The program allows Scholars to explore new dimensions in their disciplines, to engage in intellectual exchange and investigate resources not available to them at their home institutions, to broaden their own pedagogical expertise, to enrich existing courses or create new ones, and to expand professional contacts. Participation in the SIR program not only enhances the faculty member’s knowledge and skills, but also significantly contributes to the intellectual environment of their home institutions as they share what they learn with their colleagues and students.

Research Consultants

Throughout their residency at the University, Scholars confer periodically with New York University faculty who serve as Research Consultants and who are both aware of the Scholar’s project and knowledgeable in their field. Each Research Consultant is able to offer collegial discussion, professional and constructive criticism, and information on New York City and NYU resources. The Network identifies each Research Consultant and provides the contact information of the Consultant during the orientation meeting. The ties that develop between Research Consultants and Network Scholars often become the basis of on-going professional relationships that last well beyond the period of direct participation in the Scholar-in-Residence program.
