2021-2022 Faculty Seminar Applications Open

We invite full and part-time faculty from across CUNY’s campuses to apply to become “Andrew W. Mellon Transformative Learning in the Humanities Faculty Fellows” (Mellon TLH Faculty Fellows). Mellon TLH Faculty Fellows will collaborate to develop active, creative, participatory learning practices and pedagogical research. Our goal is to help ensure CUNY students’ success in and beyond the classroom. Mellon TLH Faculty Fellows will receive a $1,500 stipend for their participation as well as formal recognition of their pedagogical work as a significant contribution to CUNY’s mission.

Mellon TLH Faculty Fellows will take part in one remote, half-day summer institute on June 23, 2021, plus three seminar meetings during the semester of their cohort (Fall 2021 or Spring 2022). At this time, we are planning on a fully remote summer institute and a hybrid model for the Fall 2021 seminar meetings.

Call for Co-Sponsored Spring 2021 Events 

In Spring 2021, we dedicate our support specifically to showcasing and broadcasting the great work of our own CUNY faculty. Rather than turn to outside experts, we lead by honoring the practices and vision of CUNY faculty whose commitment to racial justice and equity are central to the mission of TLH. We believe that the inclusion of the insights and expertise of all CUNY faculty, including Asian American, Black, Latinx, nonbinary, people with (dis)abilities, and working classes, is crucial to the transformative practice of higher education.

We offer stipends to honor those organizing events in line with TLH’s mission. TLH would like to partner with and support our faculty who are committed to these goals and who are excited to share innovative ideas and methods among the CUNY community and the general public.
