Join us in celebrating the success of our PhD-Community Initiative pilot program. Launched last fall as a new theme in our Expanding Horizons program - Setting Ideas in Motion – this initiative has brought together seventeen PhD students from a variety of research fields into interdisciplinary teams to assist local community organizations.

Five community groups have benefitted from the teams’ fresh, interdisciplinary and analytical approach: Sustainable Energy in Remote Areas (SERA), Queen’s University Biological Station (QUBS) Community Outreach Expansion, Sistema Kingston after-school program, Promoting Relationships and Eliminating Violence Network (PREVNet), and the Night Economy Project, a partnership with Kingston Economic Development Corporation (KEDCO).

Our students have demonstrated talent, energy and enthusiasm to create positive change by applying the skills and knowledge gained in graduate studies to addressing challenges outside of their particular research field and beyond the academic arena.

Come and listen to their final reports on their projects and join us at our reception. Please RSVP to by Friday, March 17.
