Queensborough MSEIP

Queensborough Community College has successfully engaged community college students in high-caliber undergraduate research for a long time. Our experience, institutional commitment, faculty and modern laboratories have positioned us for unprecedented success. With the help of US Department of Education Queensborough MSEIP (Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program) grant, our main goal is to use Undergraduate Research as a tool to engage, retain and graduate Queensborough students. We intend to substantially expand the depth and breadth of research opportunities for students, particularly underrepresented females. Students will be engaged in multi-tiered research programs, allowing them to begin research projects early in their academic careers and supporting them for increasingly rigorous research that culminates in placements at partner four-year colleges.

The program will focus on 1) providing intensive summer immersion experiences for at risk high school students 2) Expand undergraduate research experience for QCC students and 3) Launch comprehensive faculty development program to train new faculty mentors.
