Update on January Field Work 2013

We were inspired by the experiential focused winter terms offered at Oberlin, Bates, Bennington, and Middlebury Colleges and  launched a Queens College version  we named "January Field Work Experience" to envision the month of January as a bridge between experiential education and academic learning.
 
From January 7 to January 25, approximately 120 students applied their academic knowledge in a variety of settings from undergraduate science research labs, volunteering in immigrant focused agencies in Queens, site visits to business firms, and working in teams on a variety of consulting projects. We look forward to expanding and improving upon The January field work term in the coming years and see it as a terrific opportunity for students either individually or in groups to participate in projects proposed and mentored by faculty and alumni. Such efforts will connect to our  college's mission of linking students to a variety of transformative experiences as they build their academic and professional identities.

Interning for Grace Meng's Campaign for Congress will be an exciting and educational experience. Our internship program is designed to equip participants with information, skills, and campaign experience that each intern can apply to future endeavors on political campaigns or in other fields. There are a number of internship positions available with the campaign. No experience is necessary and hours are very flexible with a small requirement.

Apply to join the historic campaign of State Assemblywoman Grace Meng for Congress. If elected, Grace will be the first Asian-American to represent New York in Congress, the first woman to represent the 6th Congressional District of New York, and the first woman from Queens in Congress since Geraldine Ferraro. A graduate of Stuyvesant High School, the University of Michigan, and Benjamin Cardozo School of Law, Grace has represented the 22nd Assembly district in Flushing since 2009. Grace is proud to be endorsed by the Queens County Democratic Party, Congressman Joe Crowley, and Emily’s List, among others.
