Faculty Resource Network Summer Seminars

Fairfield University is part of New York University’s Faculty Resource Network (FRN), which serves as an essential interinstitutional partner for college and university campuses fostering connection, collaboration, and collegiality among higher education institutions dedicated to the delivery of innovative and timely professional development opportunities and resources across disciplines. The FRN is committed to advancing undergraduate education and student success.


The FRN’s week-long summer program is currently accepting applications. We encourage faculty to learn more below and consider applying.  


The FRN Network Summer will be delivered in person at NYU in Manhattan, Monday, June 5 through Friday, June 9, 2023. Limited housing options are available for participants who reside more than 50 miles from NYU's campus, see our website's FAQ section for additional details. The FRN follows COVID-19-compliant protocol as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NYU, and New York City guidance. We require all participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including the booster, if eligible, and to agree to follow all posted safety guidelines to ensure the health and protection of all. 

Faculty conveners have curated seminars that explore special topics that emphasize what is relevant to today’s educators and deepen conversations rooted in social justice, the arts, history, literature, and science, among others. The summer seminars are weeklong intensive programs with morning and afternoon sessions from 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. daily. FRN Network Summer is open to colleagues across the Network regardless of school, discipline, or rank.

A complete application will include a statement of intent; one (1) letter of recommendation from your division or department head who is well-acquainted with your research area and teaching; curriculum vitae; and acknowledgment of COVID-19 protocols as outlined by the FRN. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, March 3, 2023.
