Feb 21 | Careers in Nonprofit Development

Careers in Nonprofit Development

As you look beyond the GC, why should you consider taking a job–and starting a career–in fundraising? Because, in fundraising (a.k.a. “advancement” and “development”), you

  • Powerfully advance the mission of a non-profit
  • Engage donors with a cause
  • Focus the aims of a purpose-driven organization by sharpening its pitch
  • Employ the research, writing, communication, interpersonal, and even teaching skills that you honed at the GC
  • Enter into a field meant to grow 15% in the next ten years–much faster than the average occupation
  • Work in one of the best-compensated areas of the non-profit world

At our Careers in Nonprofit Development event, a panel of GC alumni will discuss both how they moved from the Graduate Center into careers in fundraising and the field’s benefits. Our panelists include

  • Katya Ilina (PhD, German), Director of Development Operations, Yale School of Management
  • Brooke Bryant (PhD, Musicology), Director of Development, Kaufman Music Center
  • Timothy Wilson [carnegiehall.org] (MPhil, French), Manager of Foundation Relations, The Carnegie Hall Corporation

Please come–to learn about a career in nonprofit development!

The event takes place on Thursday, February 21st from 6-8pm in Graduate Center Room 9205.

Please tell us you are coming: RSVP here.

Mar 21 | How To Cope Through Challenging Times

Thursday, March 21, 2019
11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Room: 9207
Led by:
Jenifer Talley, PhD and Allie Funk, MA

The clinical staff at The Student Counseling Service are well aware of the ongoing and persistent stressors impacting our student population. In response to these cumulative stressors, we are offering this workshop.

Our current sociopolitical culture may be causing us to feel overwhelming emotions that leave us at a loss for how to care for ourselves. Often, with increased stressors and witnessing traumatic material in our daily lives and through the media, we may feel waves of intense emotions that are difficult to manage. This may be especially the case for those of us who have experienced trauma. This workshop will focus on practical techniques and strategies to enhance self-compassion and self-care during this difficult time. Participants will learn about the impact of trauma on our sense of safety and wellbeing and learn more effective ways to manage intense emotions and foster self-care.

Jenifer Talley is a psychologist and the Assistant Director of the Center for Optimal Living in New York City.  Allie Funk is a clinical fellow at the Wellness Center.

Please note that no food or beverage will be allowed during this workshop.

The application has also been attached for your convenience; email and fax is acceptable.  For more information please call (212) 817-8731.  You must have your student ID with current validation sticker available to present.

Feb 7 | Ask a Career Adviser

Thursday, February 7, 2019
4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
CUNY Graduate Center, room 7209

Students are sometimes embarrassed to ask job search and career related questions because they think they should already know all the answers. However, when it comes to the job search, information can be hard to find and ever-changing.

In this far-reaching, open-ended session, you can ask anything at all about CV’s, resumes, cover letters, job applications, networking, LinkedIn, interviewing, negotiating, or any other job-related issue. Wherever you’re at in the job search process, we’re ready to answer your questions.

Please fill out our event registration form to let us know you’re coming.

Feb 6 | “ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant” a solo exhibition of work by Ellen Rothenberg in the James Gallery

ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant

Ellen Rothenberg 

Wed, Feb 6, 2019  –  Sat, Apr 13, 2019
12:00 PM – 06:00 PM

About the exhibition

The James Gallery presents ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant, a solo exhibition of work by Ellen Rothenberg which focuses on the current crisis of migration and the forces of global capitalism by considering connections between past and contemporary issues of migration. The exhibition draws from research Rothenberg pursued in Berlin at Germany’s largest refugee camp, currently housed in the monumental Tempelhof airport, a disused site that was originally designed and built by the Nazis. The exhibition also includes objects and documents, such as passports, birth certificates, comics, and photographs—that represent earlier Jewish immigration and movement—that Rothenberg uncovered in the Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership collection.

Some writers may doubt whether they possess the knowledge to write authoritatively. Often they avoid writing altogether fearing exposure. This workshop will explore the reasons for avoidance and inhibition in writing .With the help of the audience (Bring your scenarios!), real life examples, workable insights and solutions will be presented.
