Join us for the Second Annual Advocacy Research Day at the College of Mount Saint Vincent!

Thursday, March 30th 2017 10am - 6pm at the College of Mount Saint Vincent in Riverdale, NY

Research as a Form of Service: Students and Organizations using research as a means to advocate for social, economic and racial justice!

Advocacy Research Day is a day-long event that showcases IPSL's Advocacy Research program (including the IRB), past student research, outside organizations that have worked with IPSL’s IRB and research programming and IPSL service partners in NY. 

This year’s theme centers on a discussion of research as a form of advocacy work and promotion of scientific literacy to the larger Riverdale community. This is especially critical in this day and age where alternative facts and false media have been gaining a foothold in the general public’s consciousness.
