Black History Month

Social Media Campaign

Black History Month is celebrated each year during the month of February. In celebration, the HSI-STEM team has partnered with the MARC program to highlight the stories of Black and African American members of our STEM community at QC and QCC and CUNY at large.

Panel Discussion

Join us on February 23 at 11am for a great panel discussion about what it means to be a Black Professional in STEM.

This event is free, but we would like you to register so we know who will attend.
