CUNY Conference on Undergraduate Education: The Professoriat at the Global University

The CUNY conference on The Professoriat at the Global University will be held on April 1st, 2017 at Hunter College (68th Street campus). The conference theme asks how instructors across the CUNY system can connect their teaching and research to CUNY’s global student population.

Individual and interdepartmental panel presentations will address a range of sub-topics related to the overall theme of diversity and global perspectives in our classrooms.

Presentations will come from 2- and 4-year colleges as well as other CUNY instructional contexts such as CLIP and CUNY Start. The conference is supported and organized by the ESL Discipline Council and the CUNY Office for Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA). Conference co-chairs are:  Camilla Groth (Associate Professor of English, Bronx Community College) and Paul McPherron (Associate Professor of English, Hunter College).
