CUNY BA Student Showcase

The Showcase is an annual event that spotlights the academic work of CUNY BA students for the wider CUNY community.

The Second Annual Student Showcase took place on May 18, 2021.

What is the CUNY BA Student Showcase?

This event is an opportunity for current CUNY BA students to showcase their work to the CUNY community. CUNY BA students explore a wide range of research interests, and together their works represent a mosaic rarely found at the undergraduate level.

This event is also an important professional development experience. Student presenters receive helpful support and practice sessions in preparation for the Showcase. The Showcase is a platform for students to share their work and offers a greater sense of community across the CUNY BA program.

Presenter FAQs

What type of project can I submit?

You can submit any type of project that you are working on—a research project, a performance piece, an art piece—as long as:

  • You are a current CUNY BA student,
  • The project is completed, or near completion, when you apply (so that it will be ready well enough in advance of the showcase),
  • You can present it at the showcase in a brief span of time (5-10 minutes), and
  • The project is being supervised by a CUNY faculty member (not necessarily your CUNY BA mentor).

The format of your presentation can be tailored to your unique project, as long as it can be presented briefly and online. Each presentation is followed by a few minutes of Q&A.

What is the deadline for applications to the Student Showcase and who should I contact if I have questions?

The application deadline for the Spring 2022 deadline will be announced in December 2021.
