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.
RF CUNY Brown Bag Research Webinars: NSF Career Grants
December 14, 2022
Overview of Webinar: The Faculty Early Career Development (Career) Program is an NSF-wide activity that offers prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. The Career Program proposal should contain a well-argued set of activities that will, over a 5-year period, build a firm foundation for a lifetime of contributions to research and education in the context of the Principal Investigator’s organization. The proposed project should aim to advance the employee’s career goals and job responsibilities as well as the mission of the department or organization.
Targeted Audience: CUNY faculty who hold a doctoral degree and conduct research in a field supported by NSF. Eligible applicants include untenured faculty members who hold at least a 50% tenure-track (or tenure-track-equivalent) position as an assistant professor (or equivalent title) who have not previously received a Career award.
Presenters: John Tsapogas, Director, RFCUNY-APPS and Megan Owen, Professor of Mathematics, Lehman College
