Due to the risks associated with large number of student participation under the current threat of Global Pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus, we are cancelling the 11th Annual Undergraduate Research Day Event originally scheduled for Thursday April 30, 2020.

Undergraduate Research Club

The Undergraduate Research Club is comprised of some of the brightest undergraduate research students at York College. The club facilitates student engagement in research and aims to promote awareness about the many research activities on campus.

Mission Statement

The Undergraduate Research Club facilitates student engagement in research, promotes awareness about research activities, and shares resources among club members regarding new advances within their fields of study.

The York College Undergraduate Research Club seeks to make connections between faculty conducting research and undergraduate students interested in research and creative scholarship. The club is open to all majors, and members will be encouraged to promote the importance of their individual work.

Students interested in becoming a member should contact the Office of Undergraduate Research in 3E07B or via email

You can also follow us on Facebook or Twitter to keep abreast of current research and funding opportunities.

Research Information for New Students

York College students interested in gaining research experience are highly encouraged to look for classes that offer research or research-like experiences in the classroom.

Professors throughout York College conduct research and it is advised that students reach out to faculty in departments of interest with active research programs for more information on how to join their labs.

Steps to get involved with research:

  • Take an introductory course on a subject you're interested in to gain background knowledge of the subject. Then look for professors that are doing similar work at York or at other CUNY colleges.
  • Volunteer at labs - Ask professors for more information about their research and inquire about volunteering in the lab
  • Look for programs that offer research experience. There are many opportunities at CUNY to gain research experience and some of these programs even offer stipends. Click the "Opportunities" tab on our page to view the list of CUNY-wide research programs.
  • Look online! There are many resources online that announce research opportunities. The Office of Undergraduate Research has a Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter page, so "Like" and follow us for more information about scholarships, awards and research opportunities!
