The Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) was established in 2013 by Chase Robinson (former President at The Graduate Center) and Don Robotham, Professor of Anthropology. ARC extends the CUNY Graduate Center’s global reach and prominence as an international hub of advanced study. Through its fellowships, ARC embraces the vital work of eminent scholars both within and outside of CUNY. These scholars enter a stimulating interdisciplinary environment in which they conduct their own research, access the GC’s research centers and institutes, and collaborate with doctoral students and other leading scholars. ARC also offers support to Graduate Center doctoral students from a range of disciplines, providing a platform for them to independently share and debate their research interests and practices.
