“We’re a tech college and have a lot of engineering technology students. It’s very important to teach ethics as part of the curriculum since students in engineering technology can work to be a part of the solution,” said Nakamura. “For instance, the development of reverse engineering as well as a combination of 3D scanners and printers makes it easier to analyze products. Students who gain skills in reverse engineering and also understand anti-counterfeiting technology can make a difference.”
As this nation’s largest urban university, the City University of New York (CUNY) plays a transformational role in New York City’s sustainable future with an educational footprint that spans 23 academic institutions and over half a million students, faculty and staff. CUNY is dedicated to integrating sustainability into the university and the surrounding metropolitan area through its curriculum, policy work, research, retrofitting, capital projects, workforce development and economic development activities. Sustainable CUNY is leading CUNY’s efforts through three key pillars: the CUNY Sustainability Project, city-wide Sustainable Energy projects and CUNY SustainableWorks, a commercialization program for sustainable and clean technology.
The CUNY Faculty Mentoring Program pairs a senior faculty mentor with a junior faculty member who has a set of specific goals and needs which require a one-on-one mentorship relationship.
The program is offered in cases where a junior faculty member has not identified an appropriate mentor in their own department or college.
