Dear Faculty and Students,

I am pleased to invite you to the CUNY SPH’s first Student Project Week and Research Symposium to be held at the Silberman Campus from May 8th through May 15th.  The event will showcase projects done by many graduating MPH/MS and Doctoral students from across all four campuses.  This will be a great opportunity for faculty and students to learn about some of the exciting work being done by colleagues, to get ideas for future collaborations and projects and to view projects in process or completed by our students.  In addition, it will illustrate the capacity for research that exists within our community.

Posters will be on display in the Lobby from May 8th through the 15th and students will be available to speak about their projects on May 8th from 6p.m. to 8p.m. and on May 15th from 4p.m. to 5:30p.m.  Posters will remain on display throughout the week so that many will have a chance to view them.  At 4:30p.m. on May 15th, awards will be presented for the best projects.

The culmination of the Student Project Week will be a Research Symposium which will be held on May 15th in Room 115 from 5:15p.m. to 6:15p.m..  The winning projects will be discussed by a panel of esteemed SPH faculty who will relate these projects to the broader research agenda.  Following this session, from 6:30p.m. to 7:30p.m., a group of DPH students will discuss their dissertation or other research projects.  All are welcome to attend both sessions.

Finally, we will conclude with a Reception in the Lobby.   Please mark your calendars and plan to stop by to see the work of the SPH Student Community, to interact with students and faculty from each of our campuses, to celebrate the accomplishments of our student body and to hear about the exciting research opportunities that exist.  I sincerely hope that many of you will be able to attend and view the outstanding work of our students.

We hope this will be the start of an exciting tradition and anticipate that others will have the opportunity to participate in the future.
