Students to Present Scholarly Work
Nearly 200 SUNY Oneonta students will present the results of their scholarly and creative work during the college’s annual Student Research & Creative Activity Day on Wednesday, March 26, at the Hunt College Union.
Chuck Bogosta, executive vice president of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and a 1980 SUNY Oneonta graduate, will give the keynote address, “From Oneonta to Kazakhstan – Working in a Global Organization,” at 12:30 p.m. in the Hunt Union Ballroom, which will be filled with student exhibits of scholarly and creative work.
As executive vice president of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and president of UPMC’s International and Commercial Services Division, Bogosta oversees international and commercial business efforts. This includes a leading transplant hospital and a new biomedical research center in Italy, a private hospital and cancer treatment centers in Ireland, a transplant center in Singapore, a comprehensive cancer center in Kazakhstan, a reference laboratory in India and second-opinion pathology services in China. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business economics from SUNY Oneonta and a master’s in educational administration from Bowling Green State University.
Created to recognize and promote undergraduate scholarship and creative activity, Student Research & Creative Activity Day has become the premier on-campus event for academic student exhibition. A total of 191 students, supported by 73 faculty sponsors, are scheduled to participate in this year’s event, which will feature presentations on topics ranging from “The Effects of Immigration on Wages from 2000 to 2010” to “Estimating Prevalence of Borrelia in the Ticks of Otsego County.” Displays and exhibits will be available for viewing from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
At 2 p.m., the college’s Center for Social Science Research will recognize the two student winners of its fourth annual student paper competition, which had the theme of “Sustainability: Building Communities that Last.”
