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.
Physics Seminar: Charged Lepton Flavor Violation at Fermilab: The Mu2e Experiment
October 12, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr. Kevin Lynch,
York College of CUNY
The Mu2e Experiment at Fermilab will search for the coherent, neutrinoless conversion of a muon to an electron in the field of an atomic nucleus. Such charged lepton flavor violating events have never been observed, but are predicted to occur in many Beyond the Standard Model scenarios at rates accessible to our experiment. I outline the physics and key issues for the experiment, other CLFV signatures accessible to our apparatus, our progress on design and construction to date, and prospects for the future.
