Global Virtual Faculty

Mission Statement

At Fairleigh Dickinson University, students are able to travel on an educational odyssey throughout the globe without leaving their computers. Our unique Global Virtual Faculty™ Program (GVF) opens our students' eyes to how others in the world may approach an issue in ways very different from their own. The GVF program allows us to bring the world to our students and offers them the opportunity gain a global perspective.


Program Description 

The GVF program consists of a cadre of distinguished scholars and practitioners from around the world who serve as Global Virtual Faculty members in partnership with the FDU faculty in the teaching of our courses. Since many courses at FDU incorporate distance learning technologies, it is only natural to bring together these resources and our commitment to global education by engaging GVF. What makes the GVF Program unique and the GVF members different from traditional only instructors is our mission to bring a global dimension to the learning experience.
