Faculty Resource Network

The Faculty Resource Network (FRN) at New York University is an award-winning professional development consortium that sponsors programs for faculty and administrators from a nationwide network of over 50 colleges and universities. The FRN hosts lectures, symposia, intensive seminars, and visiting scholar opportunities to improve the quality of teaching and learning at its member and affiliate institutions. Since 1983, the FRN has leveraged the collective experiences and expertise of its constituencies to accomplish a common goal of meeting the professional development needs of faculty and administrators.

The FRN is grounded in effective and practical pedagogical development and believes that sustained collaboration among institutions and their constituents strengthens the holistic growth of educators centering around three pillars:

  • Collaborative and dynamic networking among colleges and university partners
  • Independent research and scholarship
  • Undergraduate-focused program development and supports
