To welcome everyone back into the semester and celebrate the hopefully imminent coming of better weather, OpenCUNY is throwing a spring party this Friday, February 27, from 5-8pm in Room 5414. There will be drinks, food, and socializing with OpenCUNY participants (i.e. you and your colleagues!) and coordinators. Even if you haven’t yet joined OpenCUNY, you’re welcome to come and talk with us about that personal/group/etc. website that you’ve been meaning to create!
At the party and across the spring semester we’ll be looking towards supporting and building the future of OpenCUNY. Last spring we celebrated OpenCUNY’s 5th birthday, and we’ve been considering how to sustain and develop OpenCUNY for the next five years and beyond. As coordinators, we’ve been tracking changes in technology and updating our platform, including expanding our server space. We need your support and participation to help us direct the future course of OpenCUNY with two initiatives. These initiatives will help shape, protect, and support OpenCUNY in the future.
- Participate in the OpenCUNY Survey: We want to hear what you think of OpenCUNY in order to further develop the platform. This survey will only take you 10-15 minutes! We’ll be closing this survey soon, so share your thoughts. Take the survey here and read more about the survey here!
- Vote on the proposed, new OpenCUNY Terms: The Terms of Participation, the policies that govern OpenCUNY, are in need of updating, in part because technology has changed rapidly in the last five years. The proposed Terms of Participation has been published on our website for review and voting. Review and vote on the proposed Terms here and learn more about the development of these Terms and the ratification process here.
