The CUNY Commons

  • The CUNY Commons is an online networking tool across all CUNY campuses. CUNY faculty and GC students can create an account online with their email addresses. Commons Sites use the WordPress platform and can be updated from any computer.


  • Personal Academic Site: Personal webpages are intended to be used for personal promotion. .pdfs of papers and CVs can be hosted on the Commons server as well. Videos & mp3s can be embedded in personal webpages.


  • Philosophy Commons: Members of the philosophy department are encouraged to join the philosophy group on the Commons. Members of the group have authorship status and are able to contribute to the page. One of the objectives of this site is to aggregate information that was previously available across a wide variety of sources (emails, different websites) and to have it compiled in one place. On the Philosophy Commons members are encouraged to contribute content within the following categories: Calendar, Fun, Talks, Groups, Listen, Watch, CFP, Department, Site. Content on the Commons is meant to be of particular interest to current and prospective graduate students.
