The department of Academic Affairs encompasses both the PhD and Visiting Research Scholar programs with the goal of educating new scholars, supporting experienced scholars, and fostering an environment of communication and collaboration between the two groups.
The Administration and Finance department is responsible for both daily operations and long range planning for ISAW.
ISAW’s Digital Programs team uses digital technology to enhance and support the Institute’s infrastructure, resources, and research thus contributing to the advance of scholarship worldwide.
ISAW’s Exhibitions program is driven by its research mission and the fact that it neither has nor plans to acquire an antiquities collection of its own.
Library collection development efforts have focused on acquiring core collections representing the various disciplines within ISAW’s academic scope and in areas that are not yet well represented in other libraries in the NYU library system.
