Founded in 2012, NYU Shanghai is China’s first Sino-US research university and the third degree-granting campus of the NYU Global Network (in addition to New York City and Abu Dhabi). Founded as a joint venture between New York University and East China Normal University with the support of the city of Shanghai and the district of Pudong, NYU Shanghai identifies as a research university with a liberal arts and science undergraduate program at its core. While English is the language used in the classroom, community members converse in myriad languages while residing in one of the world’s great cities with a vibrant, global, and diverse intellectual community. NYU Shanghai recruits from around the world scholars of the highest caliber who are committed to NYU’s global vision of transformative teaching and innovative research and embody the ideals of a cosmopolitan, global society.

Reporting to Provost Joanna Waley-Cohen and working closely with Vice Chancellor Jeffrey Lehman, the next Dean of Arts and Sciences will have the opportunity to build upon the University’s achievements over the past decade while stewarding the University toward its next chapter. The Dean of Arts and Sciences works with the Associate Dean of Arts and Science and alongside the Dean of Business and the Dean of Engineering and Computer Science.
