The Graduate Center seeks a Deputy Director for the Humanities Alliance, a new, Mellon-funded collaboration between the GC and LaGuardia Community College. Based in the Provost’s office, the person in this position will also work closely with the GC’s Teaching and Learning Center (directed by Luke Waltzer), the Futures Initiative (Cathy Davidson and Katina Rogers), and the Center for Teaching and Learning at LaGuardia Community College (Bret Eynon and Howard Wach).

With generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Graduate Center and LaGuardia Community College of the City University of New York (CUNY) will establish the Humanities Teaching and Learning Alliance, an ambitious new partnership dedicated to training Ph.D. students in innovative methods to teach humanities to a predominantly immigrant, low-income, urban, undergraduate population. The goal of the alliance is to support graduate students in mastering the most successful methods for teaching undergraduate general education humanities courses to increasingly diverse student populations while simultaneously broadening and strengthening access to and opportunity in the humanities for those undergraduates.
Based in the Provost’s Office and reporting to the Associate Provost and Dean for Academic Affairs, the Deputy Director will join an institution with strong support for teaching and the humanities and will be part of an enthusiastic and collaborative community of faculty members, graduate students, and staff working together to equip the next generation of students and scholars. This position is funded by a grant and will end on June 30, 2020.
