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.
Climate Change, Human Health, and Resiliency Forum
February 24, 2023
Moderator: John Tsapogas, RFCUNY Office of Award Pre-Proposal Support (APPS)
The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) is interested in continuing its ties with the City University of New York (CUNY) and we are interested in building opportunities with researchers in Japan in areas related to science, engineering, and health. As part of this relationship, we are organizing a joint forum on a theme of mutual interest. On February 24, 2023, we are convening a forum titled Climate Change, Human Health, and Resiliency. Collaboration opportunities with Japanese colleagues is of course the focus but raising the profile (and attractiveness) of the intersection of these three thematic areas at CUNY is also a desired outcome of the convening. We’re planning on having sessions on US Federal agency (NIH and NSF) funding opportunities, talks about JSPS and Japanese funding opportunities that support this work; a session where Japanese researchers share their perspectives on their research; and a panel made up of CUNY faculty and a graduate student where they also make research presentations.
