2017 Undergraduate Research Day

Undergraduate Research Day at Queensborough

Undergraduate Research Day at Queensborough Community College Story

Students presented a total of 80 posters at the Undergraduate Research Day conference, providing a showcase of Queensborough’s faculty-led undergraduate research efforts across the disciplines. The event, held on December 9 in the College’s Student Union, was spearheaded by Dr. Sharon Lall-Ramnarine, Professor in the department of Chemistry. Approximately 150 students, faculty and staff attended the event.

Additional organizers were the College’s Undergraduate Research Committee, the Community College Undergraduate Research Initiative (CCURI) team and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL).  Queensborough recently partnered with CCURI, which incorporates undergraduate research into community college curricula to engage students at the beginning of their academic career.
