Faculty Fellowship Publications Program 2006

Program for the Design and Execution of a Scholarly Publication




In keeping with the University’s commitment to diversity, the University Office of Compliance and Diversity Programs, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Faculty and Staff Relations, will sponsor the Faculty Fellowship Publications Program (FFPP).  This is a University-wide initiative designed to assist full-time untenured CUNY junior faculty in the design and execution of scholarly writing projects.  These writing projects may include articles for juried journals as well as books for scholarly presses.         


This year's program is limited to faculty from the following disciplines: Area and Ethnic Studies, Fine, Applied Arts and Media, Humanities, Education, Social Sciences, and Business/Management.


The applicant must satisfy the following requirements:


  • Must be an untenured Assistant Professor hired on or before September, 2003; 
  • Must be employed full-time for at least one academic year (faculty in substitute appointments are not eligible);
  • Must have an earned doctorate.
  • Must have a letter of endorsement from the College Provost/Dean of Faculty or by the Department Chairperson supporting the reassigned time.



Each selected faculty member's work will be discussed and reviewed at regularly scheduled seminar-type meetings, led by a senior-level faculty mentor. The program requires participants to support each other in all phases of publication preparation through constructive commentary.  The group mentor is also available for individual consultation. 

The program is expected to begin in January 2006 throughout the spring semester.  Three (3) credit hours of reassigned time will be given to the selected participants.

Selected faculty will participate in an intensive orientation in December 2005. During the spring semester, group meetings and subsequent one-on-one meetings with the mentor will provide continued support for the writing projects.


Note:  Past participants of the program will not be considered.
