Call for Proposals: Futures Initiative Spring 2022 Courses
DEADLINE EXTENDED: January 22, 2021

Apply now to teach a team-taught course at the Graduate Center and serve as a Futures Initiative Faculty Fellow! Once again in 2021-2022, the Futures Initiative is pleased to support CUNY faculty at the Graduate Center and other CUNY colleges who are engaged in interdisciplinary team teaching. Selected faculty will be part of a cohort of Futures Initiative Faculty Fellows, and will receive $1,000 in research support.

NOTE: Due to current budgetary constraints, we will only be able to support 1-2 courses in Spring 2022. If you would like to have a preliminary discussion about a course's suitability before submitting an application, please contact Katina Rogers, Futures Initiative Co-Director (krogers at To learn more about current and past course offerings, please visit

ELIGIBILITY: Each faculty pair must include one central line Graduate Center faculty member and one CUNY faculty member based at another college (four-year or two-year). The requirement of including a GC central line faculty member could be flexed if the GC program commits to funding one faculty member's participation. All disciplines are welcome. The Futures Initiative is especially interested in supporting diverse pairs of scholars from the GC and the CUNY campuses, including senior and junior faculty members who have not taught at the GC previously.

Like last year, special consideration will be give to proposals that focus on introductory or required courses. Depending on the program, this could mean gateway courses, required first-year courses, research and methods courses, etc. In addition, a major goal of this program is to support diversity, equity, and inclusion—both in terms of the teaching faculty, and in terms of the course content.

Questions and preliminary inquiries may be addressed to Katina Rogers, Futures Initiative Co-Director (krogers at
