It gives me great pleasure and excitement to announce that Michael Smith, Assistant Professor of Communications Technology at York College, has agreed to join the CUNY Academic Commons Community Team as our new Outreach Coordinator.
If you’ve been around the Commons for a while, you’re probably already familiar with Michael’s work, which includes the York College Comm Tech site, an exemplary use of a blog to showcase student and faculty work from an academic department, and It Cannot Be Trivial, a digital archive of his creative work.
As Outreach Coordinator, Michael will work with our Community Team to promote the Commons on the CUNY campuses through presentations and targeted outreach campaigns. His considerable skills as a graphic designer and as an enthusiastic fan of the Commons will be invaluable, as will his creative ideas for this project.
Please join me in welcoming Michael to the team!
