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.
The deadline for submissions is November 15, 2022. We are open to extending the deadline in cases where essays may come in after this date.
City Tech Writer is a journal of outstanding student writing from ALL disciplines. We’d love to see work in the humanities and STEM alike, representing the full breadth of our students’ stories, research, and ideas.
Last year we were absolutely thrilled to publish a digital issue jam-packed with student interviews, supplementary teaching materials, lovely photographs from students, and a documentary on Asians at City Tech. We’d love to have more talented writers join this issue. This year, we’re excited to introduce a related creative writing contest, Photo Riffs. Please see the attached flyer, the Openlab site and last year’s issue for more information!
