The Faculty Fellowship Publication Program (FFPP) is sponsored by the Office of the Dean for Recruitment and Diversity in order to advance CUNY’s institutional commitment to diversity. This University-wide initiative assists full-time untenured CUNY faculty (assistant professors) in the design and execution of writing projects essential to progress toward tenure. These projects may include research-based scholarly articles for juried journals, books for academic presses and creative writing projects. This program provides three credit hours of course release for the spring semester, a writing group, and the guidance of a senior faculty member.
“It was the best experience I have had at CUNY so far.”
“I am extremely grateful to have participated in this program. There was also valuable feedback on advancing through the tenure track process that I wish I have heard before, but I am so happy I had this opportunity.”
“My writing group was amazing! I intend to stay in contact with my mentor and all of them.”
“This was such a great experience for me. At first I was not sure whether a multidisciplinary writing group would be very fruitful, but I received such amazing feedback and perspective from each member of my group and from my mentor, despite our varied research interests. All the events that I attended were very productive and worthwhile as well.”
“FFPP has made me so proud to be part of the CUNY community. It has improved my scholarship, but it has also made me more likely to participate in other CUNY initiatives. I pray that CUNY continues to fund FFPP.”
