2016: Round 1

Submission Deadline: CLOSED

 



Over the last decade increasing emphasis has been placed on the important role that community colleges play in America’s higher education system. Prompted by both governmental and University initiatives, momentum has been building to launch new programs and reforms that will increase the effectiveness and impact of community colleges on the success of students who enter the workforce or transfer to a baccalaureate-awarding school. 

In past years the CUNY Community College Collaborative Incentive Research Grant (C3IRG) program has provided faculty with grants to fund research in a wide variety of areas. The C3IRG program is now being replaced with the Community College Research Grant program. Funds from this program will support faculty research at CUNY community colleges through two distinct tracks. Track 1 of the program supports for pedagogical research. Track 2 supports faculty and students who participate in mentored research experiences.

 

Track 1: Collaborative Pedagogical Research Grant

Pedagogical research—also called the scholarship of teaching and learning—is central to improving both the educational experience and graduation rates of our community colleges. By better understanding the pedagogy used to teach community college students we will become better providers of higher education. The program supports collaborative pedagogical research efforts of CUNY Community College faculty. The program also seeks to leverage faculty expertise to promote student success. The primary goal is to seed research that will lead to externally funded grant proposals and scholarly publications.

Track 2: Mentored Undergraduate Research Grant

This program is designed to increase the number of associate degree students who are engaged in faculty mentored research projects. Research by undergraduates is a high impact educational practice, and the program aims to identify and support faculty who can provide outstanding mentored research experiences for students. The Mentored Undergraduate Research Grant program is open to all faculty across disciplines as long as the project involves faculty mentoring of an undergraduate student.
