CALL FOR PROPOSALS
CUNY’s 18th Annual IT Conference
Thursday and Friday, December 5 and 6, 2019

The City University of New York covers a broad array of campuses, programs, and student needs. Recent studies have highlighted the significant role that CUNY plays in providing access to education and opportunities for its students. Digital technologies and online programs can help us bridge gaps to access, reduce commuting stress, provide critical services, and reach new student audiences. But, to work successfully, digital technologies also require development, labor, training, maintenance, and reliable access to devices, data, and time.

The 18th annual CUNY IT Conference on “Bridging Gaps” will explore the disparities that technologies mitigate and how technology can help us overcome barriers to connection and learning. It will also examine the creative and novel approaches in using technology across the University.

The CUNY IT Conference will be held on December 5-6, 2019 at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. It will offer overviews of the University’s key IT initiatives; discussions of how technology can support and advance teaching, scholarship, and administration; and a chance to meet with vendors.

Proposals for presentations are invited from the CUNY community for panels, presentations, workshops, and roundtables. This year, we hope to see an equal number of presentations from academics and administrators; these will be offered in parallel tracks. We invite submissions of proposals in the following format. Each proposal should include a title, an abstract of no more than 200 words, and the name and affiliation of each party to the proposal. Each proposal should also indicate if it is suitable for a full session of one hour, or a half-session of thirty minutes. Proposals for half-sessions will be combined at the Conference Committee’s discretion. Proposals from individuals are welcome, but panel proposals from groups that reflect multiple perspectives on a subject are especially welcome.

In considering the theme of “Bridging Gaps,” proposals should address such questions as:

1. What barriers to success do our students face that technology may address? What emerging technologies have the potential to create new solutions to old problems?

2. What are challenges that our faculty and administrators face in using these technologies to bridge gaps at CUNY? How do we best address these challenges?

3. How can CUNY continue to develop and sustain outstanding digital pedagogy, along with a commitment to access and digital equality for CUNY’s students?

Proposals are due September 15, 2019 at 5:00 pm. Acceptances will be announced by the end of that month.

Proposals may be submitted at cunyitconference.commons.gc.cuny.edu

CUNY at the Crossroads: Diversity and Intersectionality in Action

The City University of New York (CUNY) is pleased to announce its third biennial Faculty Diversity and Inclusion Conference at the CUNY Graduate Center on Friday, March 31, 2017. The theme is CUNY at the Crossroads: Diversity and Intersectionality in Action.

Intersectionality is a timely theme as our global society wrestles with the reality of multiple identities and a range of experiences. To realize the promise of true equity and inclusion, we hope to move to a mindset that builds understanding and respects difference without fear. New knowledge is created through sharing, listening, challenging, and reflecting. The 2017 conference will provide a platform for research and best practices within the University community, research that can be thought provoking, improves our curriculum and offers inspiration as we work to bring out the best in our students. This knowledge helps the University provide a richer learning experience for students, a better teaching and research experience for faculty, and a more productive working experience for faculty and staff as we hold ourselves accountable for change.
