Below is an interesting article in last week’s Crain’s. Evidently, engineering is in high demand in NYC as our tech sector continues to grow. The article discusses a new relationship with Google and the CornellNYC Tech campus that is on the horizon. There is no mention of CUNY in this article. I’m sure that there are a number of CUNY based tech initiatives, but it would be a shame to miss out on these expanding opportunities and business relations if this is a growing sector in NYC. Any comments from individuals with knowledge about this trend or these initiatives would be greatly appreciated.
Attention graduating seniors, the job market is certainly tough but it is important to carefully consider what opportunities you are willing to take. Unpaid, internships are available only to enrolled students who can obtain credit for their experiences and the internship must have a vocational training component.

The attached flyer will serve to announce the Forth Annual Conference of the Interdisciplinary Coalition of North American Phenomenologists (ICNAP IV), at Fordham University on May 25-27 as well as an organizational meeting about the formation of a new local association of phenomenologists in the New York Metropolitan area.
We would also be grateful if your membership would help us identify phenomenologists (faculty members, independent scholars, and students) in all disciplines who are located in the New York Metropolitan area. We would like to contact them about their interest in the new local organization of phenomenologists. We hope the members of your organization will email the names and contact information of New York phenomenologists whom they know to NYMAPhenomenologists@gmail.com <mailto:NYMAPhenomenologists@gmail.com> . We hope they will be interested in building of local community networks in which individuals’ phenomenological work, relevant conferences, local meetings, academic programs, initiatives, and collaborations will take place. The initial organizational meeting will be on May 27th, 12:30 at Fordham after the ICNAP IV conference.
