Dear Colleague:

Hope you will join us for the inaugural CUNY Mindset Summit on March 3, 2023 (virtual event). 

Since 2019, the CUNY Innovative Teaching Academy (CITA) and campus colleagues have worked together so that understanding and practicing learning mindsets (GPS: Growth mindset, Purpose and Relevance, and Sense of belonging) become part of our culture across the university. In the Summit, the audience members will explore, with CUNY’s and external mindset leaders, what more we can do with the learning mindsets to create equitable and inclusive learning environments for all of our students.

ALL CUNY COLLEAGUES ARE WELCOME including faculty, staff, and administrators – those who are new to the area, and those who are familiar with the concept of learning mindsets.

For details and to register, go to: (the same flyer is also attached here).

If you have any questions, please email us at We hope to see you there!


Mari, Dominique, and CUNY Innovative Teaching Academy (CITA) Team
