From: David Christy, Provost and Senior Vice President
The following comes from a letter to CUNY provosts from Louise D. Lennihan, Interim Provost and Senior Vice President of the CUNY Graduate Center. It is relevant to tenured members of our faculty:
This is the second year that the Graduate Center, through its newly-established Advanced Research Collaborative, has successfully launched a Distinguished Fellowship Program in which faculty from CUNY colleges were granted course releases to join their colleagues and doctoral students at the Graduate Center. From the start, our goals have been to support the research carried out by CUNY faculty, to foster interdisciplinary dialogue among faculty and students, and to mitigate, the challenges we all face in recruiting and retaining the best faculty. For the 2014-15 academic year, we have ten campus-based Distinguished CUNY Fellows from Queens, Brooklyn, John Jay, Baruch, College of Staten Island and the Borough of Manhattan Community College.
The Graduate Center is now pleased to announce the 2015-2016 round of the Distinguished Fellowship Program and would be very grateful for your assistance in circulating this information to your faculty.
All Distinguished Fellows will be provided with office space, a computer, and access to the Graduate Center’s academic infrastructure. They are expected to participate in our intellectual and academic life, which means making regular use of the Graduate Center’s facility, attending Fellowship events, giving presentations to a seminar and/or public audience, share work in progress with doctoral students and mentoring them in a research praxis seminar and individual sessions organized for this purpose.
Fellowships, which will be awarded to tenured faculty in an annual competition, will be tenable for one or two semesters during the 2015-2016 academic year, which begins on August 25th, 2015 and ends June 30th 2016. The Graduate Center will continue to provide buy-outs for those awarded fellowships, funding each fellow at $6,000 per course release, up to a maximum of 3 releases per semester. We would ask, in those cases where workload exceeds 3 courses per semester, that colleges cover the outstanding course. Application forms for this year’s competition can be found at http://www.gc.cuny.edu/arc/apply
Contact Don Robotham, Director of the Advanced Research Collaborative and Professor of Anthropology if you have any questions. Dr. Robotham can be reached at email@example.com or (212) 817-7544.
