Faculty Commons, A Center for Teaching, Learning, Scholarship and Service coordinates all professional development, grants and assessment activities of faculty at New York City College of Technology. Faculty Commons adopts a programmatic approach to professional development and operates as a faculty resource and think tank where members collaborate on a variety of projects to shape curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) helps faculty and administrators compete for and win grants that strengthen the intellectual climate and improve the learning environment at City Tech. The office provides notices of grant opportunities and works with faculty and administrators over the life-cycle of a grant – from concept development through close-out.
The Professional Activity Report and Self-Evaluation (PARSE) is the documentation of a faculty member’s accomplishments during each academic year and cumulatively, in the three principal areas of teaching, scholarly and professional growth, and service. The PARSE serves as the basis for the annual evaluation. It is also provides faculty with an instrument to present to departmental and college review committees for reappointment, tenure, and promotion.

Featuring Poet Staceyann Chin & City Tech Students
Join City Tech, CUNY for an evening devoted to community, reflection, and restoration. Since Spring 2020, we have been disconnected from our campuses and each other. This event allows us to reconvene, to speak and to listen, to celebrate creative expression and share experiences from an extraordinarily difficult time. The program will feature a performance by poet Staceyann Chin, in addition to student stories, across medium and genre, from this era: stories of frontline essential and healthcare workers; stories of loss, hardship, and resilience, all enacted while pursuing a college degree in the midst of a pandemic.
Hosts and Organizers: Caroline Chamberlin Hellman, Professor of English; Ngozi Okonkwo, Student Government Association President. Co-sponsored by TLH, the City Tech Student Government Association, and Student Life.
