By Katina|December 9, 2015|Announcements|0 comments

We are delighted to announce three job opportunities at the Graduate Center, CUNY. These positions are part of the Humanities Teaching and Learning Alliance, a new, Mellon-funded collaboration between the GC and LaGuardia Community College. Please share this announcement widely.

With generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Graduate Center and LaGuardia Community College of the City University of New York (CUNY) will establish the Humanities Teaching and Learning Alliance, an ambitious new partnership dedicated to training Ph.D. students in innovative methods to teach humanities to a predominantly immigrant, low-income, urban, undergraduate population. The goal of the alliance is to support graduate students in mastering the most successful methods for teaching undergraduate general education humanities courses to increasingly diverse student populations while simultaneously broadening and strengthening access to and opportunity in the humanities for those undergraduates.

The Mellon Humanities Scholar will also work with the director to broaden the programming and the institutional presence of the Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center, now in its initial year. The position has an end date of June 30, 2020.
