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 PARSE serves as the basis for the annual evaluation.

Humanities Seminar: Works in the Works – Professor David Sanchez Jimenez presents 400 Years: Cervantes in the Spanish Language and the Spanish Language in Cervantes
September 8, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Professor David Sanchez Jimenez writes:
In 2016 we celebrate the death anniversaries of Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare, two of the most influential authors of all time in Spanish and English literature. Both of them are well known for their contributions to spreading language in a universal way, much as Homer, Virgil or Ovid did in their time. In this presentation I will talk about how Cervantes’ writings contributed to the international dissemination of Spanish.
