GAFs ensure that these students not only succeed but excel in their academic and personal development. Global Academic Fellows in the Writing Program play an integral role in the development of students written and oral expression throughout the four years of their NYUAD educationfrom the first-year experience to the Capstone project. Writing GAFs help the writing faculty with assessment and course placement; serve as writing and/or speech consultants in the Writing Center; give individualized tutorials as part of Analysis & Expression and writing-intensive classes; may provide writing support in secondary academic assignments; consult with faculty on best writing and speaking practices across the curriculum; provide individual and group support for Capstone projects; and support Writing Program and Writing Center initiatives (such as special workshops, website development, and curricular or extra-curricular events).

In addition to academic support, GAFs frequently partner with various departments to enhance the services provided to students and faculty as well as to develop skill-sets to prepare them for their post-fellowship endeavors. Previous GAFs have been admitted to graduate schools and professional programs at distinguished institutions (NYU, Harvard, Rockefeller, Yale, Columbia, and NYU Polytechnic). Others have been inspired by their GAF work and have chosen to pursue careers in higher education administration, from career development services to special events management, from student life coordination to academic program management.
