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.

Farmingdale State College is a member of the FRN consortium which offers many fine opportunities for faculty growth, networking, scholarly activity, and publication. Some of the innovative programs provided by the FRN include:

  • The FRN Summer Seminar series provides an opportunity for faculty to participate in a week long seminar on the NYU campus designed to further intellectual growth, sharpen skills, and provide networking opportunities with other scholars in their field.

  • The FRN “Scholar in Residence” program allows faculty members to spend the summer, or who have obtained a sabbatical from their home institution, to spend a semester in residence at New York University and pair-up with a faculty mentor of their choice to complete a research project or other scholarly activity.

  • The FRN January Research and Faculty Growth Seminar is held in a different location every year.

  • The FRN “Faculty Associate” program allows member faculty to access to the massive resources and data bases of the Bobst library for a semester. This is an excellent resource for beginning, pursuing or completing research projects and other scholarly activity. The Faculty Associate program also allows faculty to audit any class offered by NYU faculty during the academic year as well.

  • The FRN Annual Symposium, provides a great opportunity for faculty to share the results of their research or pedagogical activities in a professional scholarly environment.


Above all, the Faculty Resource Network provides an excellent opportunity to network with other scholars in many disciplines, participate in stimulating faculty growth programs, and develop scholarly activity and publications.
