ADVANCING EQUITY AND INNOVATION IN HIGHER EDUCATION

WE

STRIVE

to support multiple sectors of learning, research, and mentoring and to help facilitate a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive academic institution and society.

WE

EMPOWER

the leaders of tomorrow through CUNY Peer leaders, our undergraduate leadership fellows program.

WE

CONNECT

with scholars from around the world through our partnership with HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Science and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory).

WE

RESEARCH

topics that reach beyond academia and create a positive impact while engaging the public in creative ways.

WE

TEACH

team-taught, collaborative graduate classes at The Graduate Center

It has been inspiring to witness how FI Fellows and affiliated scholars are centering care in their academic, professional, and political practice.

FI Alum

What if instead of centering self-care — limited to the private spaces of our lives — we actually created collective spaces of care? Many of us do. I think this is one of the most important values of our work at FI.

FI Doctoral Fellow

Working with the FI team has helped me feel confident bringing my whole self, with all its junctions, into everything I do – not just my scholarship or my work at FI.
