About the Event

New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) is home to over 850 contracted colleagues, hailing from 36 different countries. While their colleagues serve the institution in different capacities, such as security and cafeteria staff, facilities management, and janitorial staff, they have collectively served as the backbone of the institution. NYUAD’s Office of Social Responsibility offers a comprehensive program of educational opportunities to meet the expressed educational and social needs of our contracted colleagues. Educational programs for NYUAD contracted colleagues began in 2012 with a pilot in English in the Workplace; and over the last eight years, they have expanded their adult education offerings to a full scale program that offers twelve certificate courses in an array of subjects including English in the Workplace, Arabic instruction, computer and financial literacy, public speaking, and professional development.
