NYUAD values diversity, inclusion, belonging, and equity; and such principles are fundamental to the university’s mission. The student body is made up of students from more than 115 countries, with no single one nationality exceeding more than 15 percent of the total student population. Across its four divisions, NYUAD is also home to more than 320 faculty who represent more than 45 different nationalities; and 400 research staff, who are likewise drawn from all over the world.

The Psychology Program at NYUAD is composed of a vibrant group of researchers investigating perception and cognition, as well as social and developmental psychology, and houses cutting edge research facilities, such as a 208-channel MEG system, a 3T MRI facility, as well as EEG, eye-tracking and behavioral testing facilities.
