Guttman, BMCC, and SLU Leadership Awarded BT2P’s The Way Forward Grant for CUNY Curricular Excavation Project
As part of its The Way Forward initiative, Bringing Theory to Practice (BT2P) has awarded one of only 15 “Multi-Institutional Grants (MIGs) that bring the core values and best practices of undergraduate education to bear on the need for change” to the CUNY Curricular Excavation Project. This collaboration between CUNY’s Guttman Community College, Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC), and the School of Labor and Urban Studies (SLU) “will employ Culturally Responsive Pedagogy during a summer faculty professional development institute for all three campuses as a way to improve the success of community college students as they move through transfer toward a baccalaureate degree.” Guttman’s Dean of Faculty and Academic Affairs Dr. Nicola Blake and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Dr. Niesha Ziehmke are Co-Principal Investigators of the Project with Dr. Gladys Palma de Schrynemakers, Interim Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at SLU. “BT2P launched The Way Forward initiative in fall 2020 as a response to the current intersecting crises facing American society and higher education – systemic racism, the pandemic, and economic inequality.” As Guttman, BMCC, and SLU are all members of the forthcoming Urban Academy transfer partnership, addressing equity through the Project will have lasting and critical impact on the educational and career trajectories of students historically underserved and underrepresented within higher education.
