As part of the mission of the ORD, we have developed a series of programming to support our faculty, staff, and administrators. Our signature program, the Faculty Fellowship Development Program has been running for — years. The CUNY Mellon Faculty Diversity Initiative launched in 2017 with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Other programs include the CUNY Faculty Diversity Dialogues, the Leadership —-, the SAGE leadership development program, as well as the DPDF program which ended in 2016. We will continue to develop innovative programming to further support the efforts across CUNY to build an inclusive and dynamic climate for faculty, students, and staff.

CUNY Mellon Faculty Diversity Initiative (CFDI)

In 2017, the ORD launched an exciting initiative to support our diverse faculty at CUNY. With the generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the CUNY Mellon Faculty Diversity Career Enhancement Initiative (CFDI) supports sustained mentorship for junior faculty via research/ writing seminars and a series of professional development workshops. Currently, the initiative works in conjunction with Queens College, Hunter College, Brooklyn College and the City College of New York. Visit the CFDI Mellon website for more details.

CUNY Faculty Diversity Dialogues 2017-2018

Led by experts in the field, CUNY Faculty Diversity Dialogues are forums for CUNY administration, staff, and faculty to build awareness around a range of issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This series will provide a forum for discussion focused on matters of inclusion, implicit bias, intercultural communications, and efforts to increase diversity through faculty and staff recruitment, retention, and advancement in the workplace. These workshops are intended to support and encourage the participation of CUNY Faculty, Chief Diversity Officers, Deans, Search Committee Chairs, Provosts, Administrators, and College Presidents.
