2020 Research and Creativity Week

2020 Research and Creativity Week

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis that led to the closure of CUNY campuses, the 2020 Research & Creativity Expo has been presented through a variety of online platforms, webinars, and zoom symposia, organized by the  programs listed below. As every year, John Jay College undergraduate and graduate students participated in the online 2020 Research & Creativity Expo, displaying works that cover a multitude of disciplines and led by dedicated faculty. Projects ranged from one to two semester-long capstone projects to long-term student-faculty collaborative work leading to publications, theses, or other proposals.

The 15 OSRC cohort students have worked diligently throughout the year under the guidance and mentorship of their dedicated faculty mentors to produce their projects.
We appreciate you taking a moment to visit their work
