Dr. Christina P. Col n is an Assistant Professor of Biology at Kingsborough Community College, and Chair
of the Eco-Festival Committee. As an ecologist, her passion for nature is evident
in all aspects of her service to her students and to the campus. Her classroom and
campus-wide work emphasize civic engagement through citizen science which promotes
concern for local species and ecosystems. As a proponent of active learning, she
regularly involves her students in her research on horseshoe crabs in Jamaica Bay,
and shares information about her work in Southeast Asia on seed dispersal in carnivores.
She believes that students learn best by doing, and that by taking action, students
can become powerful agents of change.
