Campus Champion

SUNY Distinguished Professor of Geology Christopher McRoberts concludes a 10-year commitment as director of the College’s Undergraduate Research Council this spring. His dedication to student research, scholarship and creative pursuits is an inspiration. From its inception in 2006, the program has built an endowment of more than $100,000 to enable undergraduate students to engage in research and scholarship. “It makes a real difference in the lives of our students – early exposure to collaborations and experiences transforms lives, develops professionals and firms up life and career plans.” Chris will remain devoted to the council and to his teaching, research and writing.
