• Faculty Scholarship

    LaGuardia faculty demands more of themselves and their students, both inside and outside the classroom. Our faculty have raised the bar for their peers at two-year institutions: fifty-four percent of LaGuardia faculty hold Ph.D.s, twice that of community college faculty across the nation.

    Their vision and leadership extends beyond the classroom, into a wide range of subjects, from literary theory to medical entomology, increasing the knowledge base in their fields of expertise with their scholarly publications and research.

    Faculty Scholarship & Creative Activity Collection for CUNY

    Full-time professorial faculty who were active in both the spring and fall of 2019 (i.e. calendar year 2019) are designated as “mandatory” and are required to report, even if it’s just to indicate “No Work to Report.” Full-time professorial faculty who were active one semester, but not both, and other kinds of full-time faculty are not required to report, but may report their scholarship. Please note that the mandatory/optional designations are based on data available from the CUNYfirst system at the time the list was generated.
