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.
Call for Proposals: Community College and the Future of the Humanities
March 31, 2018
A National Conference Convened by LaGuardia Community College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York October 18 and 19, 2018
Community colleges are redefining the importance and centrality of the humanities to the lives of the “new majority” of students, both during their academic careers and after graduation. To explore and celebrate the role of humanities within community colleges and across the broader landscape of higher education, the CUNY Humanities Alliance invites proposals from college students, graduate students, faculty, and administrators for interactive sessions at “Community College and the Future of Humanities” conference. We seek a wide diversity of voices, perspectives and positions, and strongly encourage applications from scholars of color, people with backgrounds historically underrepresented in the academy, and people with direct experience in community colleges.
Please fill out the proposal form (bit.ly/conferenceproposal), which includes information for each of the presenters, a 200-word description of your proposed topic, and a 100-word description of
your proposed format. Proposals are due by March 31, 2018.
