New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) seeks to appoint an Assistant Dean, Residential Education and Community Standards reporting to the Associate Dean of Students.
Assistant Dean, Residential Education and Community Standards will be responsible for providing senior level leadership, strategic planning, and implementation of the department of Residential Education's community development programs and housing operations that support an undergraduate residential college structure for 1600+ students that cultivates students' learning and interpersonal growth. In addition, the Assistant Dean will assume leadership of the student conduct and Community Standards process and work closely with the Associate Dean, NYUAD’s Student Conduct Committee, and the Office of Community Standards in New York to identify synergies between residential life and community standards and create a deeper and more holistic sense among students about what it means to live together in community.
The Assistant Dean will oversee a professional staff of nine which includes Assistant Directors, Program Manager, Residential College Directors, Residential College Operations Managers, Faculty Fellows in Residence, and 60+ student leaders including Resident Assistants, UAE Cultural Advisors, and Residential Education Interns who are committed to empowering students by creating valuable programs and opportunities to engage with peers, staff, and faculty within our purposefully designed residential colleges on NYUAD’s campus and beyond. The Assistant Dean will also serve as chair and provide leadership to NYUAD’s student conduct committee, made up primarily of colleagues from within the Division of Campus Life and also some members of the faculty and academic staff.
The Assistant Dean will work to develop a vision of the department of Residential Education that positions it as a platform of access to the residential experience for other departments within and beyond Campus Life and that helps to integrate key student services and resources more holistically into the residential experience. Finally, the Assistant Dean will work with other Assistant and Associate Deans within the division of Campus Life to provide advising outreach and on-going support to individual students when necessary.
The Assistant Dean is also a member of the Campus Life Senior Leadership Team and works closely with key stakeholders at NYUAD and colleagues at NYU New York and Shanghai. This role requires frequent evening and weekend activities throughout the academic year, including serving in a senior, on-call rotation capacity each for a period of time each semester. This position has the option to live on-campus though it is not required.
About NYUAD & Campus Life:
New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) is a central part of NYU's global network, marked by a uniquely international student population (100+ nationalities); a rigorous, liberal arts and science academic program; and a location at the crossroads of the Arab world. We are a highly diverse community that shapes and examines issues of common humanity through multicultural perspectives; recognizes that the breadth of an education here extends far beyond the classroom and the campus; sees students themselves as educators; and recognizes that true engagement with the breadth of our diversity requires curiosity, humility, and engagement with contrasting views and values.
NYUAD's Division of Campus Life brings together multiple functional areas within student affairs – including cultural engagement, spiritual life, student involvement, community outreach, career development, athletics, residential education, fitness, student conduct, health and wellness, accessibility services, and more – to provide students with the structure, resources, and support to maximize their educational experience and reach their full potential. The Division of Campus Life plays a crucial role in shaping the out-of-classroom experience for a highly diverse (the vast majority of students from outside the region) residential population of 1600+ undergraduate students.
