What is Research Day?

Hosted by Durham College’s (DC) Office of Research Services, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, this annual event is a dynamic display of DC faculty, student researchers and industry partners. It creates awareness of the important role and impact applied research has on the community and showcases the experiential learning opportunities it creates for students.
