Department News & Events

  • New Arrivals:
    • Dr. Nader Copty, Instructor of Physics, as of July 1, 2010.
    • Dr. Eric Iannacone, Instructor of Biology, as of July 1, 2010.
    • Diana Trybulski, Administrative Assistant, as of June 1, 2010.
  • Biotechnology Seminars:
    • These weekly seminars ,part of the Biotechnology Seminar course, are open to the public.Students who may be interested in biotechnology, as a major or as a future interest, will particularly benefit from attending these seminars.
  • Science Seminars:
    • Since the Fall 1997semester, thanks to the inspiration and hard work of Professor Emeritus.Darryl Walke, the Department has sponsored a series of weekly Science Seminars during the fall and spring semesters. These talks, which cover a wide range of topics in science, engineering, and mathematics, are presented by faculty at Raritan Valley Community College, as well as by members of the wider academic and scientific community. They provide the substance for the Honors Science Seminar (SCIE-128), but are also open to all interested students, faculty, staff, and members of the public.
  • Department Meetings:
    • The department meets biweekly on Thursdays (beginning in September), at 12:10 PM in room C207 unless otherwise stated. For additional information, please contact the department's Administrative Assistant, Diana Trybulski: 908.526.1200 x 8817 or dtrybuls@raritanval.edu )
