Spring 2019 Sigma Xi

Welcome to an exciting series of events for Sigma Xi for this spring! 

We will be sponsoring the Northeast Regional Sigma Xi Student Conference on Wed. April, 24, 2019. This conference coincides with our Annual Sigma Xi Student conference. Students from colleges all over the Northeast are invited to attend and present their posters at our conference. Due to space limitation, we can only host 100 student posters, so please encourage your QU students to apply early!

Distinguished Lecturer: Good news! We received a Distinguished Lectureship grant from Sigma Xi for the 7th straight year to help fund our Spring, 2019 Distinguished Lecturer. Dr. Paul Anastas has accepted our invitation as the Keynote and Distinguished Lecturer for 2019.

Judges Needed for Conference!!!!
One great need for the conference will be judges for our Graduate and Undergraduate poster contest. Please contact Neil to volunteer! (
