ACERT is proud to announce that three Hunter College faculty members have been selected for funding through the CUNY Research in the Classroom (RIC) Idea Grant program.
Frida Kleiman (Chemistry) received $ 7,500.00 for “Implementation of research/publishing experience in large Biochemistry class at Hunter College.” Christina Zarcadoolas (Anthropology) received $ 7,500.00 for “The Real Thing: Integrating Primary Qualitative Research Data To Engage Classroom Students in a Collaborative Research Methods Course.” Maria Hernandez-Ojeda (Romance Languages) received $1,000 for “Fighting Fascism: Hunter College Students and the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939).” Maria was also a participant in the FITT 2016 program, through which she created her project “The Spanish Civil War: Students Interpret the Abraham Lincoln Brigade.”
RIC’s mission is to expand the scope of the research endeavor at CUNY by broadening participation of undergraduate students. The traditional ‘apprentice’ model encourages students to work in a laboratory setting or one-on-one with a professor. RIC’s goal is to take faculty research directly to students in the classroom by creating a research-integrated curriculum.
