RE: Call for Proposals for the 2016-2017 President's Faculty Innovation
I am pleased to announce the criteria and dates for the 2016-2017 President's Faculty
Innovation Awards. A total of $25,000 for the 2016-2017 academic year will be available.
Awards of up to $5,000 will be made to successful applicants. We are especially interested
in the following types of projects:
If you have such a project in mind and would like it to be considered for an award,
please complete the attached Cover Sheet, Proposal Outline, and Chairperson Approval(s)
form and submit the total package to Associate Provost Reza Fakhari (Reza.Fakhari@kbcc.cuny.edu) no later than March 17, 2016.
Full-time faculty can be granted release time upon approval of their Chairperson before submitting the proposal. All applicants are strongly urged to consult with Ms. Wanda
Morales in College Advancement [M243, Ext. 4539] to draw up their budget.
Please note that basic course redesign, as would fall within usual faculty responsibilities,
is ineligible. Course enhancements, as described above, will be considered.
All proposals will be reviewed by the Faculty Awards Committee* and recommendations
made to the President. Awardees will be announced on April 18, 2016.
I strongly encourage all faculty to think creatively and collaboratively, and I look
forward to having our students benefit from the exciting work these awards are designed
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Fakhari at extension 4550. To view
