Course Innovation Grant in Data Analytics and Cybersecurity
June 23, 2019
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. As a part of Workforce Partnership Initiative (WPI), BRT regional partners would like to collaborate with CUNY faculty to help educate and prepare young talent in these areas.
As a part of this special grant opportunity, faculty awardees will have the opportunity to collaborate with BRT member companies to develop content and update courses. They will also have the opportunity to engage the member companies’ subject matter experts, as well as explore possibilities for guest lecturing, curriculum review, and other activities.
Companies currently participating and interested in partnering with CUNY faculty include (but not limited to) JP Morgan Chase, Guardian Life, IBM, UPS, Pitney Bowes, and Mastercard.
All RFP responses are due Sunday, June 23, 2019.
