Each academic year, the Office of Institutional Advancement brings Queens College students and distinguished alumni and friends together through a special lecture series called Professionals on Campus.

The program, arranged in seminar-style gatherings, provides students with the opportunity to learn from and interact with seasoned professionals representing multiple industries and sectors. Our renowned speakers are considered experts in their fields, role models for career success, and, most importantly, they all got their start at Queens College.

Professionals on Campus events are held throughout the Fall and Spring semesters.
