NYU Abu Dhabi

New York University has created a visionary new model for higher education at the crossroads of the world—NYU Abu Dhabi—combining the best of a research university education with the advantages of a liberal arts, sciences, and engineering curriculum. NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai, and NYU's Washington Square campus in New York City form the backbone of a fully interconnected global network university. As a major portal campus of the University, NYU Abu Dhabi establishes a powerful environment for faculty, students, and alumni to access the NYU global network.

The mission of the College is to provide undergraduate students an exceptional education, built on both the traditions of the finest liberal arts colleges and the resources and ideals of a major research university – to nurture in students the analytic and communicative skills, the breadth and depth of intellect, and the international perspective and experience that leadership in our increasingly interconnected world requires; to engage students in active pursuit of knowledge and understanding; to foster in them the readiness and ability to embrace conceptual and ethical complexity; to strengthen students’ confidence and ability as producers of knowledge; and to offer students opportunities, both local and global, that reinforce their development into wise and effective agents of a more united, generous, and responsive world.
