“SUNY Undergraduates Shaping New York’s Future: A Showcase of Scholarly Posters at the Capitol” will be on display in the Legislative Office Building in downtown Albany on Tuesday, April 13, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm to highlight undergraduate research and creative academic endeavors offered at SUNY campuses across New York State. In all, 32 SUNY campuses will be represented by approximately 100 different scholarly poster sessions.
The students representing Stony Brook include Priya Borker, Diana Gonzalez, Kristine Horvat, Kevin Knockenhauer, and Michael Markowitz. Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (URECA) is sponsoring the students’ travel costs. Faculty mentors from Stony Brook who will be attending the event are Francoise Cromer from Women’s Studies and Sanford Simon from the Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology and the Department of Pathology.
The event is designed to bring together some of SUNY’s most talented undergraduate scholars to present their research and creative academic projects to a large audience that will include SUNY Administration officials and members of the State Legislature and interested members of the public.
To participate in the showcase, SUNY campuses were asked to self-select up to three undergraduate research or creative endeavor posters that represent a sampling of the breadth of academic work offered at the campus and/or an academic or research specialty that highlights the campus. Each participating SUNY campus will have its own display area and the student and faculty mentor names and project abstracts will be displayed appropriately in the event program.
The event is sponsored by Undergraduate Academic Programs and Policies Committee of the SUNY University Faculty Senate. All of the undergraduate research was supervised by SUNY faculty mentors.
