Looking for Whitman (NEH)

This innovative program brings the life and works of Walt Whitman, quintessential American poet, into the digital age. NEH support has allowed Professor Matthew K. Gold, of the City Tech English Department, and his collaborators to create this experiment in digital pedagogy. More Info

Advance@City Tech (NSF)

City Tech is in the midst of an NSF-funded project to research, reflect upon, and plan a transformational initiative for women STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) faculty that will improve the professional climate and enable women to realize their full professional potential, unimpeded by either structural barriers or more subtle forms of self-limitation that arise from gender stereotyping and societal expectations.

I 3 (NSF)

Through its new I 3 (Innovation through Institutional Integration) program, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has granted City Tech $928,836 for a project titled "The City Tech I3 Incubator: Interdisciplinary Partnerships for Laboratory Integration." "This initiative will change the way that STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) lab courses are taught at the college," according to Provost Bonne August, "by reimagining the lab experience in the College and building outside relationships."

Along the Shore (NEH)

City Tech faculty, under the leadership of project director Richard Hanley, of the English Department, have developed a weeklong NEH Landmarks workshop entitled, Along the Shore: Changing and Preserving the Landmarks of Brooklyn's Industrial Waterfront. City Tech's location across the street from one of the nation's major landmarks, the Brooklyn Bridge, and its advanced multimedia laboratories make the site and the institution an ideal venue for this creative program.
