I run a monthly-ish discussion group that focuses on possible futures in higher education. We tend to engage with many of the same themes that are the focal point of our class.
Join us this Wednesday, April 5 from 3-4pm EDT for a discussion on activist and coalitional leadership. This session will be led by three scholar-administrator-friends whom I deeply admire:
- Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Director of DH and Professor of English at Michigan State University
- Carrie Smith, Vice-Provost for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at the University of Alberta
- Kendra Sullivan, Associate Director of the Center for the Humanities at CUNY Graduate Center
Kathleen, Carrie, and Kendra all embody the kinds of engaged, feminist leadership that has the potential to transform the academy.
To join us, register here.

Grants in the amount of $500 will be awarded to PhD or master’s students at the Graduate Center to support interdisciplinary research related to equity, health, and learning for CUNY students. In particular, we are looking for research projects that explore the challenges and opportunities that students face outside of the classroom that impact their success inside of the classroom, including but not limited to access to transportation, health care (including mental health), housing, food, living wages, and internet/digital devices.
Deadline: March 15th
Join us Wednesday, March 1 from 2-3pm EST for the second discussion in the ACH Mentorship and Professional Development series, “Making DH Work for Us: Labor, Care, and Careers.” For this special session, Eduard Arriaga and Katina Rogers will be joined by co-facilitators Hannah Alpert-Abrams and Sylvia Fernández Quintanilla.
For more details, see the original post on the ACH website.
The Futures Initiative is pleased to offer three separate grant competitions.
- 6th Annual Dr. Louise Lennihan Arts and Sciences Grant
- 2nd Annual Paul C. Notari Environmental Studies Grants
- This year, the Futures Initiative is also offering the Equity and Social Justice Grant, a new competition that is open to MA or MS students
Projects will be evaluated on the quality and significance of their research, creativity, public value, potential usefulness, relevance, and contribution to equity and social justice. For the Notari and Lennihan grants, preference will be given to late-stage candidates of their PhD programs who are making satisfactory and timely progress towards completing their degrees, and who have not received an award in years past. Students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the academy are warmly encouraged to apply.
Eligibility: Applicants for the Notari and Lennihan grants must be PhD students in good standing, at any stage of their career, and in any field. The Equity & Social Justice Grant is open to MA and MS students. All applicants must be enrolled for the Spring 2023 and Fall 2023 semesters. Award recipients will be asked to participate in a presentation in Fall 2023.
