2nd Annual Student Research Day
from 10:00 AM to 05:00 PM
The York College Office of Undergraduate Research is hosting the 2nd Student Research Day April 14th, 2011 in the Atrium. This promises to be an exciting day of panel presentations, poster presentations and creative works by York students for all majors. Students representing any of York’s three schools (Arts & Sciences, Business and Information Systems, Health and Behavioral Sciences) will have the opportunity to share their creative works and research with us.

A proud Jamaican National, Staceyann’s voice was featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, where she spoke candidly about her experiences of growing up on the island and the dire consequences of her coming-out there.
Widely known as co-writer and original performer in the Tony award winning, Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam on Broadway, her poetry has seen the rousing cheers of the Nuyorican Poets' Café, one-woman shows Off-Broadway, writing-workshops in Sweden, South Africa, and Australia. Chin’s three one-woman shows, HANDS AFIRE, UNSPEAKABLE THINGS, and BORDER/CLASH all opened to rave reviews at the Culture Project in New York City.
Be it on “60 Minutes,” or in the New York Times, Staceyann has a reputation for telling it exactly like it is.
