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: Russell Sage Foundation and William T. Grant Foundation
October 26, 2022
Overview of Webinar: This webinar will provide researchers with information on funding opportunities in two philanthropic nonprofit organizations. The Russell Sage Foundation was established for the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States. It dedicates itself to strengthening the methods, data, and theoretical core of the social sciences to better understand societal problems and develop informed responses. The Russell Sage Foundation supports visiting scholars in residence, funds researchers in academic institutions, and supports programs intended to develop a new generation of social scientists. The William T. Grant Foundation focuses its support on projects that use research evidence that contribute to our understanding and improvement of society. Currently, the Foundation funds research that increases our understanding of: (1) the programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality in youth outcomes, and (2) how policymakers and practitioners acquire, interpret, and use research evidence.
