OpenCUNY would like to welcome you to the Fall 2016 semester! We would also like to welcome Paul Hebert as our new Coordinator for Education and Support. This past year Maggie Galvan completed her PhD (Congrats, Maggie!) and has moved on to new and exciting opportunities. Over the summer, Paul transitioned into his role and will be working with the other Coordinators to develop an exciting series of events throughout the 2016-2017 year!
This year OpenCUNY will host an event series around the theme, “OPEN”. These events will include panels, workshops, and discussions about open source culture and tools, open access publishing, open/universal design, the future of OpenCUNY, and more. Check back soon for more information.
As usual, we will continue to support graduate student work on the OpenCUNY platform. Remember that you can reach out to the Coordinators at any time for support, one-on-one consultations, or to request a theme or plugin. We have also been piloting an initiative to offer small grants to programs, chartered organizations, or informal student groups that would like to host events focused on website development on OpenCUNY. If you’d like to host an event to set up a new site or build out an existing site on OpenCUNY, get in touch with us!
As your semester gets underway, we look forward to what you will create on OpenCUNY. The Coordinators’ role is to make sure that OpenCUNY runs seamlessly. We always want to know what’s going on throughout the network so please reach out to us if you ever have an issue, big or small. You can reach all the Coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to reach out to us personally.
