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.
CUNY at the Crossroads: Diversity and Intersectionality in Action
March 31, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
The City University of New York (CUNY) is pleased to announce its third biennial Faculty Diversity and Inclusion Conference at the CUNY Graduate Center on Friday, March 31, 2017. The theme is CUNY at the Crossroads: Diversity and Intersectionality in Action.
Intersectionality is a timely theme as our global society wrestles with the reality of multiple identities and a range of experiences. To realize the promise of true equity and inclusion, we hope to move to a mindset that builds understanding and respects difference without fear. New knowledge is created through sharing, listening, challenging, and reflecting. The 2017 conference will provide a platform for research and best practices within the University community, research that can be thought provoking, improves our curriculum and offers inspiration as we work to bring out the best in our students. This knowledge helps the University provide a richer learning experience for students, a better teaching and research experience for faculty, and a more productive working experience for faculty and staff as we hold ourselves accountable for change.
