Our Spring 2024 theme is “We Are the Village: Cultivating Capacities and Connections for Learning and Scholarship.” In this theme, we emphasize the many collaborative efforts towards increasing student and faculty success we have been seeing and discussing this academic year.


“It takes a village” is the phrase many of us learned at least a generation ago. The village represents community and shared goals from multiple positions and perspectives. As we engage with students who grapple with pandemic learning gaps, mental health crises, and the catastrophes of climate change and mass violence, we realize that we are the John Jay village working together to teach, support, and raise up our students towards more holistic, more capable futures.


On January 24, 2023, our John Jay Faculty Development Day offered many chances to learn and connect. These include:

  • 10 breakout sessions with John Jay faculty, staff, and students sharing their work
  • 1 Brightspace transition session with our John Jay Blackboard-Brightspace experts
  • 1 plenary session on pandemic learning gaps and interventions for our John Jay community
  • Lunch with our John Jay community followed by time for working groups
