Campus Partnerships

We are delighted to work with four CUNY colleges as Humanities Alliance partner institutions: Borough of Manhattan Community College, Guttman Community College, Hostos Community College, and LaGuardia Community College. 

Between 2021-2025, 28 Graduate Center doctoral students will have the opportunity to work in educational development roles at these institutions. Working closely with faculty, staff, and administrators, and supported by The Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center and the Futures Initiative, graduate fellows will help plan and support humanities education both in the classroom and beyond it. See below for specifics about the campus partnerships and projects:

Undergraduate Leaders: CUNY Peer Leaders

The CUNY Peer Leaders is a community-based program that supports CUNY undergraduate students’ scholarship and creative work in the Humanities and supports them in developing leadership skills to implement within their communities and colleges. Still in its inaugural year, the CUNY Peer Leaders is a new iteration, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, that combines elements of the CUNY Humanities Alliance LaGuardia Mellon Humanities Scholars program and the Futures Initiative Undergraduate Leadership and Democracy Fellows Program. The new program welcomed nearly 40 CUNY Peer Leaders for 2020-2021 from 11 two- and four-year CUNY colleges.
