The Rifkind Center for the Humanities and the Arts announces a new Rifkind Divisional Teaching Award, commencing in Spring 2018. The award is open to all full time faculty members in the Division of Humanities & the Arts. The primary purpose of the award is to reward excellence in and commitment to teaching, with a secondary goal of supporting faculty research or creative activity. Two awards in the amount of $2,000 will be given, to be used for expenses such as travel, equipment, and subvention of costs for publication, production or creation during the Spring semester.
Applicants must submit the following materials by November 1, 2017:
CV (in CCNY format)
Teaching Statement (in which you list courses you have taught and share your teaching philosophy and methods; no more than 2 pages)
Two course syllabi and related teaching materials such as exams, in-class assignments, websites, Blackboard materials, etc. (no more than 20 pages)
A letter of support from one faculty member who has recently observed your class
Decisions will be announced by Dec 1, 2017. The decision making body consists of the Rifkind Center Advisory Committee. The award is made possible by the generosity of the Rifkind family and the Winston Foundation, which for many years have supported the Simon H. Rifkind Center for the Humanities. The Rifkind Teaching Award will be awarded on an annual basis.
