Research at CCNY
CCNY leads the senior colleges in the City University system in external research funding. The general areas of research and scholarship have traditionally focused on disciplines in the sciences, engineering, biomedical education, social science, humanities, arts, and education.
With a major investment of more than a quarter billion dollars from the State of New York, the construction of world-class science research facilities is underway at the CCNY campus. Two new science research buildings - one for The City College of New York science research program and a CUNY-wide Advanced Science Research Center that will serve scientists from throughout the City University system - will yield nearly 400,000 square feet for state-of-the-art laboratories and offices, imaging facilities, an electron microscopy vivarium, as well as a café and lecture hall. Together with the adjacent New York Structural Biology Center, the buildings will form a research hub that will provide outstanding opportunities for faculty and science students.
The Associate Provost For Research is responsible for promoting, developing, and reviewing research and scholarship throughout the College. He contributes to the development of strategies and programs to support and expand CCNY's comprehensive research agenda. This entails working closely with faculty and administrators to encourage and facilitate research and scholarly activities in all academic areas and developing new College-wide research programs.The Associate Provost for Research has overall responsibility for the administration of grants and sponsored programs, research compliance and other research resources on campus.
