Bristol-Myers Squibb Center for Science Teaching and Learning
The Bristol-Myers Squibb Center for Science Teaching and Learning at Quinnipiac University is committed to bridging the gap between the existing research on how students come to understand the collective STEM body of knowledge and the teaching practices used every day in classrooms across Connecticut. We are here to help passionate practitioners to critically reflect on their teaching practices and how to enhance their own classroom practices to engage their students in a transformative science experience.

Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute
Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute is a scholarly resource for the study of the Great Hunger, also known as An Gorta Mór—the Famine that devastated Ireland from 1845–52. Through a strategic program of lectures, conferences, course offerings and publications, the institute fosters a deeper understanding of this tragedy and its causes and consequences. For more information about the institute, please contact the director at 203-582-4564.
Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum
Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum, Músaem An Ghorta Mhóir, is home to the world’s largest collection of visual art, artifacts and printed materials relating to the Irish Famine. The museum is located at 3011 Whitney Avenue, near Quinnipiac’s Mount Carmel and York Hill campuses and is open to the public. Its collection focuses on the famine years from 1845–52, when blight destroyed virtually all of Ireland’s potato crops for consecutive years. The crop destruction, coupled with British governmental indifference to the plight of the Irish, who at the time were part of the United Kingdom, resulted in the deaths of more than 1 million Irish men, women and children and the emigration of more than 2 million to nations around the world. The 4,750-square-foot museum offers publications, lectures, concerts and other events designed to educate the general public, scholars, researchers, artists and students about the richness of Irish culture and the high quality of its visual arts in particular.
