Expanding Diverse Perspectives

The Fred Renwick Visiting Faculty Fellows Program


NYU Stern School of Business is pleased to invite applications from interested and qualified candidates of all backgrounds for the Fred Renwick Visiting Faculty Fellows Program for the 2023-24 academic year. The program annually welcomes four visiting faculty fellows, two in the fall and two in the spring semester. In doing so, it seeks to initiate and deepen research relationships, to build and expand institutional networks, and enrich Stern’s culture and classroom experience with professors with a commitment to focus on uplifting voices, values, and perspectives of Black/African-American and other underrepresented or indigenous groups in our community to promote inclusivity, equity, and belonging.

Initially developed and piloted in 2021 in collaboration with Clark Atlanta University (CAU), the program is aimed at expanding diverse perspectives and collaborations and centering equity, inclusion, and belonging in the Stern academic experience. In 2023, the School is delighted to expand its outreach to the broader academic community.

This fellowship program is inspired by the memory of, and is named for, Fred Renwick (MBA ’65, PhD ’66), a beloved former Professor of Finance at Stern, a great champion of diversity, and an alumnus of both Morehouse College and NYU Stern. It has been made possible through an anonymous, endowed gift to NYU Stern.

About Stern

Stern is home to a total of 14 centers and institutes, each of which serves a different mission and engages stakeholders that range from industry leaders and policymakers, to academic partners, to students and alumni. Some focus on traditional business school topics (e.g., finance, economics, and real estate, etc.), and others elevate innovative areas that distinguish Stern from peer programs (e.g., business and human rights, sustainable business, and technology, etc.). Centers generally engage in activity in one or more of three foci: 1) research; 2) student engagement; and 3) industry engagement.


Applicants are asked to: provide a CV; explain their interest in participating and what they hope to achieve through participation; and describe what types of courses they would be interested in teaching. The application is available on Interfolio with a rolling deadline.


NYU Stern invites candidates to apply by September 8, 2023, for the spring 2024 fellowship by February 1, 2024, for the fall 2024 fellowship, and by June 30, 2024 for the spring 2025 fellowship.
