Composition

Syracuse University, Cornell University, and the University of Rochester are represented by the Principal Investigator/Director at each campus. In addition, two members are selected from each of the CNY Humanities Corridor’s founding institutions. Other partner institutions are represented by one member [in addition to any ex-officio administrative member(s)].

Selection

Representatives are invited to serve from each campus. Criteria for representative eligibility are adaptive to interest and participation. Representatives are appointed to a term of three years. The initial slate of representatives was represented in the 2017-18 academic year during the March 2018 planning meeting.

Function

At the annual CNY Humanities Corridor fall conferences, the Advisory Board receives reports on the previous year’s activities, programming, and budget. Based on these reports, the Advisory Board makes recommendations to the Directors for the purpose of the following year’s review and award process conducted by the Directors. The Advisory Board may also recommend larger program changes (e.g. changes to the current research cluster configuration).

A Platform for Future Collaborations

The Corridor holds annual conferences each fall at rotating locations to:

  • Gather Advisory Board members to make programmatic recommendations for the coming year to the Principal Investigator/Directors;
  • Highlight the CNY Humanities Corridor’s activities over the course of the year; and
  • Provide faculty and academic staff with enhanced opportunities to network with colleagues from across the Corridor.
