The Graduate Center Digital Initiatives project of the Provost’s Office supports innovative digital projects designed, created, programmed, or administered by matriculated doctoral students in good academic standing at the Graduate Center. Winning proposals from the 2012-2013 competition may be found here.
The Graduate Center Digital Fellows Program places doctoral students with advanced technological skills in strategic positions throughout the Graduate Center. The GC Digital Fellows work with faculty members on digital scholarly projects, design websites for special initiatives, facilitate training workshops, and, more broadly, explore new ways for Graduate Center faculty, students, and staff to share their academic work through new technological platforms and social media tools. Their reflections on this process can be found on their blog, Tagging the Tower.
The Program Social Media Fellows are PhD students who work within their respective departments on digital scholarly projects, design websites for special initiatives, and explore ways for faculty and students in departments to share their academic work through new social media tools. Find examples of their work here.
The Videography Fellows Program is a pilot project of the Provost’s Digital Initiatives Program, and is designed “to promote the center’s scholarly activities online, making them more available and accessible to public audiences.” The focus of the program is to produce “high quality videos for a very small number of Ph.D. programs, centers, and the three Mellon committees.” For more information on current Videography Fellows or to submit a project proposal, click here.
