Created through grant funding from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Inclusive Excellence Grant, the Science Hub @ the CLC is a way to connect students, faculty, staff and community partners in STEM fields to each other to increase outside of class learning, community, and collaboration. We offer programming geared towards student success in STEM, both for students here at VCU and students interested in transferring to VCU from one of our community college partners.
For faculty, the Science Hub offers faculty development opportunities geared toward fostering STEM success.
Our ultimate goal at the Science Hub is to break down the barriers between students and faculty to create a community of scientists and mathematicians at VCU.
Check back here often for information about our latest opportunities, helpful videos to enhance your VCU STEM experience, and to learn more about the Science Hub @ the CLC. If you have questions, would like to meet with Brian Cone, Ph.D., the Science Hub Program Manager, or have a great idea for programming please do not hesitate to reach out to email@example.com.
All Science Hub events for the Fall 2021 semester will be available as hybrid events, meaning you can join either in-person or via Zoom. If you plan to join an event over Zoom, please click on the event’s Zoom link to register for the event beforehand.
Ever feel lost on where to even start with your STEM journey? Discover and Connect is an opportunity open to any current or future VCU student interested in learning more about getting involved in STEM-based experiences at VCU and in the community. The Science Hub Program Manager, Brian Cone, Ph.D., and Science Hub Faculty Fellows will be available to discuss any topics of interest to you, including: how to communicate with faculty, finding research opportunities, how to navigate experiential opportunities, and how to prepare for a STEM-based career.
Are you interested in participating in research! Join us for our STEM Undergraduate Research Series. Come hear directly from undergraduates about the research they are conducting on campus and how they connected with faculty researchers.
A traditional resume highlights the accomplishments of an individual, but doesn't tell the whole story. Join us for our Not on My Resume Series. Come hear from VCU alums and local employers about all the things that happen on the path to success that DON'T always end up on a resume!
Meeting your faculty for the first time? Wanting to connect with multiple faculty in different disciplines? The Science Hub Student Hours bring multiple STEM faculty members together to a shared space in order to help answer course-specific quesitons, provide support for STEM students, and help build a positive and productive relationship.
Sign up to join a Tuesday session via Zoom
Are you interested in being successful in STEM courses? How about joining a research lab? Our series of coffee chats serves as an introduction to a variety of faculty that teach introductory level STEM courses and/or collaborate with undergraduate researchers at VCU.
Come learn tips and tricks directly from them to getting a great grade or establishing a rapport with them. All Coffee Chat videos are available on the VCU Science Hub YouTube channel.
