Futures Initiative Events

All Spring 2022 Futures Initiative Events:

The Futures Initiative is pleased to partner with HASTAC to offer events, webinars, and Twitter chats designed to tie student-centered, engaged pedagogical practices to institutional change and social justice. We will pay special attention to race, gender, diversity, equity, and inequality—and to rethinking the higher education we so urgently need now. These events connect to a collection of team-taught courses offered at the Graduate Center each year.

Upcoming Futures Initiative Events:

Is Graduate School For Me?

In continuation of The Futures Initiative series that launched during the spring semester, we invite you to join us and learn insightful tips about the graduate school application process from current CUNY graduate students, faculty, and administrators. This event is designed primarily for students who are actively applying or preparing to apply to graduate school. You’ll hear personal experiences about everything to do with the application process, including writing the perfect personal statement, using resources that are publicly available, networking, organizing deadlines, and much more! The application stage does not have to be a solitary process. Join us on December 5th to learn more.​
