Space Shuttle Commander Robert ‘Hoot’ Gibson ’66 Inspires Suffolk Students

Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay, at left, was joined by Commander Robert “Hoot” Gibson at a dinner with faculty, staff and students a day after Gibson’s inspirational commencement speech at Suffolk County Community College’s 55th commencement on May 21.

Gibson, a 1966 graduate of Suffolk, presented the college, pictured, with artifacts from his voyages aboard the space shuttle including a Suffolk pennant he carried into space.

“Commander Gibson was impressed by our STEM program and the national recognition we received with the award of more than $2.6 million in grant funding in the past decade, and that our STEM scholars have achieved paid research internships in arenas as varied as NASA, in 6 of the 11 federal laboratories around the nation, and also at the Smithsonian Institute,” said President McKay.

“Commander Gibson spoke passionately about his academic and career pathway – all , in his words, influenced by his start in engineering science at  Suffolk County Community College,” said Suffolk County Community College Professor of Chemistry and NSF SSTEM program chair, Dr. Candice J. Foley.

“STEM programs at Suffolk County Community College include a Science & Technology Entry Program (STEP), a Collegiate Science & Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) and a Liberty Partnerships Program, all funded by the New York State Education Department. Total student enrollment in these programs exceeds 700 students and funded with more than $1 million annually,” said Associate Dean, Continuing Education Nina A. Leonhardt.

5/1/17 In Our Backyard Series

In Our Backyard

The Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding (CSJHU) recognizes that when incidents occur and issues arise in our surrounding communities, they impact the day to day lives of our Suffolk County Community College students.

Most recently, our college community has been deeply affected by the violent incidents and increase in gang activity within areas surrounding our campuses. In response to these incidents the CSJHU, in collaboration with the College Wide Office of Multicultural Affairs and College Campus Activities, would like to introduce a new and ongoing program entitled, “In Our Backyard”.

In Our Backyard is a forum created to offer a safe and supportive environment for our students to discuss and share their feelings, thoughts and concerns regarding these incidents as well as organized training to develop productive ways to respond through community advocacy and engagement.

The first in the series will take place College wide, on Monday, May 1st during common hour (11am – 12 pm) at the following locations on each campus.

For more information or if you have questions, please contact the CSJHU: (631) 451-4117.

Selden, NY – 3rd Annual Professional Clothing Drive

The Career Services and Cooperative Education Office at the Ammerman Campus will be holding its 3rd annual professional clothing drive on:

 

Tuesday, May 9 and Wednesday, May 10

10:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 2:30 PM– 4:00 PM

Gently used men’s and women’s business clothing and accessories will be accepted on the above days in the lobby of the Babylon Student Center.

This year all clothing will once again be donated to the Career Couture Boutique at the Suffolk County Department of Labor.  Career Couture is located at the Suffolk County One-Stop Employment Center and offers both men and women proper business attire for upcoming interviews and job fairs at no charge.  With the proper attire, most individuals will have a better opportunity of obtaining their next job.

Career Couture is in need of suits, blazers, blouses, pants, skirts and accessories such as shoes, purses, scarves, ties and jewelry.  Donations should be business appropriate, clean and current (no more than 3 years old).  All donations are 100% tax deductible.

Thanks to all of you, our previous drives were all a tremendous success.  I hope that we can be just as successful again this year.
