Largest-ever Undergraduate Research Conference Spotlights Student/Faculty Collaboration

June 10, 2017

The Conference took place in the Center for the Arts.

The fruits of the excellent academic connections between College of Staten Island (CSI) students and their faculty mentors were on display, last May, at the Annual Undergraduate Conference on Research, Scholarship, and Performance, which took place in the Center for the Arts.

This year’s Conference was the largest ever with 335 research poster presenters (200 actual posters), 12 oral presentations, and nine panel participants, as well as performances from 80 Music and Dance students, and works by 30 students of the Visual Arts.

CSI Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Gary Reichard, PhD, commented on the significance of the event. “The annual Undergraduate Conference on Research, Scholarship, and Performance provides important opportunities for CSI students to showcase their research and performance skills for fellow students, CSI faculty, and members of the campus and Staten Island communities. In its 16th year in 2017, it has become a jewel for CSI. The annual Conference underscores the exceptional one-on-one mentoring relationships between CSI’s world-class faculty and students.”

Poster presentations line the hallways for the Undergraduate Research Conference.

Beyond the research posters, panel discussions, and paper presentations, other highlights included a recital from the CSI Chamber Music Ensemble, a program featuring the CSI Dance Program, and the Undergraduate Research Conference Art Exhibition.

The Conference is sponsored by the Division of Academic Affairs with funding from CSI Student Government, the Office of Alumni relations, and the CSI Foundation.
