I@Q is more than a conference; it is an approach to learning where the teacher and the learner reside in the same person. It is a natural extension of a university that prides itself on the quality of undergraduate education and its scholarship and research. It is the signature learning experience at Queen's University.

In a world of ubiquitous and competing information, the ability to pose critical questions and forge a path to answer them has never been more important. Students who engage in inquiry projects are better able to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information; develop discipline-specific research skills; persist and make intellectual and personal gains; demonstrate greater problem-solving and research skills; and are more satisfied with their overall educational experience.  

The 17th Annual I@Q Conference in March 2023 took place in Stauffer Library to promote and showcase undergraduate research and creative work. All submissions were documented in the official online Inquiry@Queen's conference proceedings and made publicly accessible.
