The application period for 2017 is now closed

The 2015 administration of the COACHE faculty satisfaction survey and last year’s pilot of this program (see below) suggest that CUNY Associate Professors want more support for promotion. In response, during the spring 2017 semester, the CUNY Office of Academic Affairs is once again pleased to offer Moving from Associate to Full Professor, a workshop series and funding opportunity for CUNY Associate Professors.

Two workshop series will be offered – one for Associate Professors at CUNY community colleges and one for Associate Professors at CUNY senior colleges. The series will address a broad range of practices that are important for professional success generally and promotion specifically.

Each workshop series will include two five hour (12:00 pm – 5:00 pm) sessions at CUNY Central (205 East 42nd Street) on the following dates:

Workshop Series for Senior College Associate Professors

Friday, March 17, 2017
Friday, April 21, 2017

Workshop Series for Community College Associate Professors

Friday, March 24, 2017
Friday, April 28, 2017

Following the workshop series, participants will have the opportunity to apply for funding aimed at helping them make progress toward promotion.
