Futures Initiative

The Futures Initiative aims to advance greater equity and innovation in higher education. Housed at the Graduate Center and reaching throughout the CUNY community, the Futures Initiative empowers the next generation of intellectual leaders with bold, public, and engaged teaching and learning. The Futures Initiative fosters greater understanding of the complexities of the higher education landscape by spearheading qualitative and quantitative research in areas such as academic labor practices and reward systems, open-access multimedia publishing, data visualization and interpretation, and institutional change. Through HASTAC@CUNY (a hub of the online network Humanities, Arts, Science and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory), the Futures Initiative extends its collaborative peer-to-peer practices across institutions, disciplines, national boundaries, and economic and social disparities, promoting reinvestment in higher education as a public good.

\”What is GCDI\” Guide to Resources

  • Dear Digital GC,

    Check out the new Digital Fellows blog post outlining the offerings of the GC Digital Initiatives. This post reviews information about the GC Digital Initiatives, upcoming workshops, and useful online resources. The start of any semester can be a struggle as we try to get our feet back underneath us and our work done efficiently. The spring term can feel like a bit of an avalanche and it’s hard to know what else is available and where. The GC Digital Initiatives are here for you! Join the GCDI Group on the Commons for regular updates, follow us on Twitter (@Digital_Fellows@cunygcdi), tune in to your department listservs, check the workshop calendar, and visit GCDI on the Academic Commons. It’s always good to know what’s going on with the GCDI, because you, yes you, are the digital GC.

    The GCDI offers different types of support for digital scholarship from the weeklong skill introduction at the GC Digital Research Institute to evening workshops to afternoon skill share lunch conversations, to one-on-on consultation for faculty and students. Whether you have participated in our workshops before or your idea of the perfect software is a paperback edition, there is something for you! Our offerings are open to scholars at all levels of digital experience and at all stages of graduate research. Whether you are digitally driven, curious, or defiant, we are prepared to help.

    Thanks!
