Suffolk Community College Open House Sunday November 2

SCCCticket

Prospective and recently accepted students and their families will be welcomed by faculty, administrators and current students to Suffolk County Community College’s open house scheduled across all three of college’s campuses on Sunday November 2 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

College faculty and administrators will welcome visitors and offer detailed information about Suffolk’s more than 70 degree and 30 certificate programs and will be joined by admissions staff to help students and parents navigate the admissions process and answer questions. Financial aid representatives will provide details about the grants and loans process, as well as the many academic scholarships available at Suffolk.

Veterans should note that campus representatives will be available to provide educational and transitional services information.

The Open House program at each campus will be important for recently-accepted students as well, and provide an opportunity to learn more about placement testing, academic advisement and financial aid.

“Prospective Suffolk County Community College students and those accepted will discover that making a personal visit to a campus is critical to the college decision making process,” said Joanne E. Braxton, Suffolk’s Dean of Enrollment Management.

“We look forward to having students and their families join us to learn about our academic programs and student support services,” Braxton said, adding “they will also have the opportunity to tour the campus with student guides who will answer questions based upon their experiences as active students. Attending open house and applying early is the best way to secure admission to Suffolk County Community College,” Braxton concluded.

Suffolk County Community College’s Rosa Gambier One of 350 Worldwide Invited to UNESCO Conference

Rosa Gambier, PhD

Rosa Gambier, PhD

Rosa M. Gambier, Ph.D., Suffolk County Community College Biology Department Chair, was one of 350 international scientists, academics, educators and representatives from 65 countries invited to take part in a three-day event, Botanists of the Twenty-first Century: Roles, Challenges and Opportunities conference, organized at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Headquarters in Paris, France this past September.

The conference brought together participants from many regions of the world with a particular interest in the plant kingdom and sought to develop forward-looking perspectives for the botanical profession in the 21st century.

The group drafted and signed a UNESCO declaration to reinforce the commitment of the attendants and the institutions they represent to: sustainable use of plant species, emphasis on innovative botanical education, the commitment to and importance of plant conservation, the importance of herbaria to preserve biodiversity, conservation of indigenous people’s botanical knowledge, understanding the urgent need to continue studying biodiversity especially under drastic environmental change and global warming, and the use of free technology for dispersing fast and efficiently botanical information.

The conference attendees also recommended that UNESCO adopt 2017 as the International Year of Plants for Life and recommended that the theme of 2017 World Science Day should be “Botany and The Plant Sciences for Sustainable Development.”

Despite a decline in the practice of botany in recent decades, advances in technology have opened up new perspectives for the discipline’s development, including creating an international digital herbarium or computerized plant recognition technology and a renewed international commitment to plant conservation and understanding of indigenous peoples plant knowledge.
