CUNY Committee on Academic Technology Research and Development Group (CAT-R&D)
Mission Statement The mission of the CUNY Committee on Academic Technology Research and Development Group (CAT-R&D) is to research, test, and recommend new technologies from the perspective of classroom faculty needs and pedagogical effectiveness.
CAT-R&D exists to advance the field of academic technology by consulting with colleagues and groups developing new technologies, conducting classroom trials, and sponsoring programs. The goal is to provide independent evaluations using transparent criteria that are openly reported on the CUNY Academic Commons, at the annual CUNY IT conference, and to other bodies.
CAT-R&D fosters academic excellence by working with researchers, educators, and developers to create an academically enriching environment for students and faculty.
