It also creates a mutual opportunity to assess critical areas of need related to information technology.

To develop the workforce required to safeguard digital information, Suffolk County Community College is launching a new Cybersecurity degree. A collaboration between industry and education will help to maintain a successful workforce and this conference represents the first in what will become an annual opportunity to ensure that Suffolk’s programs are meeting the cyber needs of the Long Island business community.

Suffolk County Community College held its 55th commencement Sunday in the Health, Sports and Education Center on the Michael J. Grant campus in Brentwood.

Number of graduates

4,174 total degrees awarded.

Commencement speaker

Space Shuttle Commander Robert “Hoot” Gibson spoke about his career as a fighter pilot and astronaut, attributing his success to the teachings of his father and the associate degree in engineering science he received from SCCC in 1966. “You are all going to find, just as I did, that the education that you received was excellent preparation,” he said. “I never would have dared to dream that I would get to go to space…Follow your dreams, follow your passion.”

Student speakers

Samantha Reeves, 26, of Bay Shore, who earned an associate degree in communications, could not hold back tears as she spoke of her mother, who died from cancer before she could see her daughter graduate. “A few days before she passed, she made me promise her that I would finish school regardless of how many limits life had to offer,” she said. “This moment, to me, means that I kept my promise to my momma.”

Lucia Mallozzi, of Ronkonkoma, who earned an associate degree in geological and earth sciences, spoke of the challenges she faced early in her studies. “Midsemester, tried to take my own life. Some of you may be thinking ‘Why would she admit to over 4,000 people that she attempted suicide?’ I did because the truth is that … 1 in 50 college students ages 18-24 will attempt to take their own lives,” she said. “It was a hard decision to return to Suffolk, but in hindsight it was the best decision I ever made. Because of Suffolk County Community College, I did not become a statistic.”

Graduates

Joan Bolanos-Martinez, 32, business administration

“Venezuela, right now, is having hard times. I want to help to rebuild my country. All the opportunities that I’m getting here in Suffolk, I owe this to my country.”

Victor Piccini-Ventura, 23, liberal arts

“It feels like I’ve made an impact for myself. And I hope to make an impact on others.”

Anthony Valcourt, 22, business administration

“I want to go back to my country in Haiti. My goal is to create a better opportunity for kids in need, to be able to have a better future just like I did.”

Sumayyah Uddin, 22, liberal arts

“I didn’t really want to leave Suffolk. This really became my second home. I was really shy before I came here, and now I have a bunch of friends. It kind of feels weird to uproot myself all over again.”

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.

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Give the Gift of Sight

FACTS: 

In the western world, we take vision for granted  !!!  

We think nothing of spending hundreds of dollars for eyeglasses, contact lenses or corrective eye surgery. Good eyesight for us is essential as it affects every aspect of our waking lives.

It is equally essential for hundreds of millions of people in developing world countries who need glasses but don’t have them. Poor eyesight for them can mean the difference between working and not working, gathering enough food or going hungry, being able to read or remaining illiterate.

13 Million Children around the world need glasses. Many of these children risk missing their education because they cannot see well enough to learn    :  (

Imagine yourself with blurred vision…all day long….all month long…all year long.       :  (

YOU get the picture!  SO WHAT CAN YOU DO ???   While  you are SPRING cleaning,  when you find those old glasses that you usually toss back into the draw  (for emergencies) … pick them up and send them to US so we can help some of the half billion people of all ages to be able to have SIGHT !!

You can send your used (but not broken) eyewear to me at the address below.  Please do NOT send eye glass cases.  Just wrap in a bubble wrap or a paper towel- mark your package FRAGILE and send to:

Ammerman Campus –

Kathleen Italiano
Suffolk County Community College, North Building- OPIE
533 College Road, Selden, NY 11784

Eastern Campus –

Janine Tortortella
Suffolk County Community College, Peconic Bld Room 216

Thursday, April 20, 2017, Heroin Epidemic, Broken and Losing, Time is Running Out

Heroin Epidemic

More than 50,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2015 — the most ever, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

What can be done? How do we stop it?

Dr. Frank Maletz and Coach Jim Spellman discuss the epidemic, the science of addiction, the drug sources, and the future at a special gathering at Suffolk County Community College on Thursday April 20, 2017, 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m., at the Michael J. Grant Campus’ Health Sports and Education Center, room MD105.

The program, Heroin Epidemic, Broken and Losing, Time is Running Out features Dr. Frank Maletz, a CACS Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon who has taken on a second career as a American Medical Practices and Facilities Futurist and become a pioneer in advocating for cautionary prescribing of opioid medications. Dr. Maletz was among the first to speak out about the use of opioid prescription abuse/addiction to street Heroin.

Coach Jim Spellman was a classroom teacher of English and American History and a highly successful high school football coach. He concluded his career in education as an administrator specializing in active shooter/emergency response protocols and policies. The deaths of former students by Heroin led him to lead volunteer awareness and education programs. In January of 2017, Spellman traveled to Afghanistan to investigate Heroin at its primary source.

Heroin Epidemic, Broken and Losing, Time is Running Out
