This program will not be offered this year, but the

 Mid-Career Faculty Fellowship Program  for tenured Assistant and Associate Professors will be offered in Spring 2019


The 2015 administration of the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) survey suggested that CUNY faculty want more support for promotion.  In response, during the spring 2016 semester, the Office of Academic Affairs piloted Moving from Associate to Full Professor, a workshop series and funding opportunity for CUNY Associate Professors. The program was offered again in spring 2017.

Program application materials:   2016      2017

Workshop Series

Separate workshop series were offered for Associate Professors at CUNY’s senior and community colleges.  The workshop series addressed a broad range of range of practices that are important for professional success generally and promotion specifically.

Program Evaluation

Program evaluation includes two components.

  1. Participants provide feedback immediately after each workshop session. Slides summarizing this feedback for the 2016 pilot and the 2017 program are available here.
  2. Program outcomes (e.g., progress toward promotion) will be assessed at two points – 2 and 3 years following program participation.
