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.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)-Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Minority Research Grant Program (MRGP)
Overview of Webinar:
MRGP provides funding opportunities to support health equity research conducted at: 1) Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs); 2) Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs); 3) Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISIs); or 4) Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs). Through this funding opportunity, the Minority Research Grant Program will make awards to eligible institutions. The purpose of the MRPG is to support researchers at minority serving institutions that are exploring how HHS can better meet the health care needs of CMS beneficiaries. The MRGP supports research on the discovery and characterization of health processes, practices, behaviors, and burdens or issues related to CMS programs, policies, and operations, that influence health equity. Funded research may comprehensively address the social determinants of health that drive or influence the barriers and opportunities populations described above experience related to CMS-supported benefits, services, and coverage. By focusing on understanding how inequities in communities impact health, Funded research may also employ participatory methods that foster equitable engagement of affected communities in research, such as convening and advisory board with community members, community-based organizations, and service providers. The three goals of the MRGP are to: 1) Develop capacity at minority serving institutions to research health disparities and social determinants of health; 2) Understand the root cause of issues – processes, practices, behaviors, and burdens – that lead to health disparities and identify replicable interventions; and 3) Strengthen CMS programs by disseminating best practices uncovered through funded research.
