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 CUNY Career Success Initiative is excited to announce a special Course Innovation grant opportunity specifically for faculty interested in developing, revising, or enhancing courses in cybersecurity and data analytics in partnership with the Business Roundtable, a national business organization (https://www.businessroundtable.org/about-us). Several of the BRT member companies in NY, NJ, and CT have growing workforce needs in cybersecurity and data analytics.
