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.
