Graduate Center Interim President Joy Connolly (formerly provost and senior vice president) describes a new Mellon Foundation-supported initiative to transform doctoral education for the public good.
A doctoral education in the humanities can and should serve not just academia but the world beyond. That is the premise of an ambitious project by The Graduate Center of the City University of New York to transform doctoral education for the public good. At the heart of this work is the launch of PublicsLab at The Graduate Center.
The mission of the Stone Center is to build and disseminate knowledge related to the causes, nature, and consequences of multiple forms of socio-economic inequality. Although the Stone Center’s associated faculty and students have diverse interests and utilize a range of methods, they share a commitment to scholarship that is quantitative, data-driven, and policy-oriented, and that addresses questions that are cross-nationally comparative and/or global in scope.
