5th Annual National Dialogue on Race: Beyond The Color Line

Wednesday, September 27, 2017
9:30 – 10:45am — Sagtikos, Van Nostrand Theatre (Map)

Join the dialogue… with guest speakers
Suffolk County Deputy Police Commissioner Risco Lewis-Mention and Dr. Arthur Romano professor of conflict resolution and peace education at George Mason University.

Suffolk County Deputy Police Commissioner Risco Mention-Lewis began her legal career as a Nassau County Assistant District Attorney in 1993, prosecuting misdemeanors.  She later became an Assistant District Attorney in County Court where she prosecuted felony cases. When litigating an attempted murder case in 1999 that involved teenagers, Mention-Lewis realized that young people were in dire need of new, comprehensive intervention strategies.
In 2005 she was honored with her promotion to the position of Unit Chief of Rising Star where she focused on gang prevention strategies. In January 2013, Mention-Lewis was appointed by the Suffolk County Executive to the position of County Deputy Police Commissioner, making her not only the first female to hold the position, but also the first person of color. Her work entails creating comprehensive programs to combat gang violence and recidivism through intelligence lead policing, community-oriented policing and assisting to develop Council of Thought and Action groups across the county.

Dr. Arthur Romano, an international peace-educator, consultant, certified nonviolence trainer and a professor of conflict analysis and resolution at George Mason University.  Dr. Romano has implemented innovative educational programs in Africa, South America, Asia, Europe and the US. Those programs have supported thousands of students in learning practical strategies for building healthy communities, becoming global leaders and productively engaging with conflict.  Dr. Romano has spoken numerous times at the United Nations and has collaborated with the Department of Public Information to promote the Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence and the International Day of Peace.

All Are Welcome!

9/14/17 Fall Presidential Lecture Series Guest: Ndaba Mandela

August 28, 2017

TO:                  The College Community

FROM:            Dr. Shaun L. McKay, President

SUBJECT:     Fall Presidential Lecture Series Guest Announced:

Ndaba Mandela – Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 11 a.m.

 

I am pleased to announce the fall 2017 Presidential Lecture Series to be presented at Suffolk County Community College. This forum is meant to engage the college community in meaningful conversations that can inspire each of us to bring about positive change in our communities. It also provides the College with an opportunity to meet its mission-related strategic goal of enhancing community enrichment through increased participation in social and cultural events and activities conducted by the College or in partnership with external stakeholders.

This semester’s presentation will be delivered by Ndaba Mandela, grandson of the South African activist and former president, Nelson Mandela. Ndaba’s lecture is entitled, “From Prisoner to President: The Mandela Legacy Lives On.”  The lecture will take place on Thursday, September 14th at 11 a.m. in the Shea Theater on the Ammerman Campus in Selden; it will also be streamed to the Sagtikos Theater on the Michael J. Grant Campus and the Montaukett Learning Resource Center, Room 107/108.

In his presentation, Ndaba describes what it was like to first meet his iconic grandfather at age 11—when Nelson Mandela was finally released from prison and Ndaba lived with him in the Presidential Palace shortly thereafter. Ndaba tells tales and shares the inspiring, and often amusing, anecdotes told to him directly from his doting grandfather. Ndaba also describes to his audiences, both the joy and the strain he feels having the awesome responsibility of the world’s expectations to be counted on, and considered as, the “2nd chapter” of the Mandela story.

Tickets will be required for this event on the Ammerman Campus. If you would like to reserve space for your class, or for more information about the presentations, please contact Jill Santiago at the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding at santiaj@sunysuffolk.edu.

Christina Simons ’10 featured on Business Insider

LANSDOWNE, Va., Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Today, the Cooke Foundation announced the opening of the application period for the largest private scholarship in the United States for community college transfer students. Exceptional community college students with financial need and plans to transfer to a four-year college or university have until noon ET on October 24 to apply for a prestigious Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship, which is worth up to $40,000 per year.

“Community college students are more likely than students at four-year schools to come from families with low and moderate incomes. Yet they are just as likely to possess the capacity and drive to succeed at our most elite colleges and universities,” said Cooke Foundation Executive Director Harold O. Levy. “If a high-achieving community college student wants to transfer to a four-year institution, we want to remove financial need as a barrier to their success.”

Since 2002, 860 Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholars have received over $36 million in scholarship assistance. A 2015 Cooke Foundation study found that the Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholars routinely do better at elite four-year institutions than many students who started as freshmen.

One former recipient of the scholarship, Christina Simons, began her studies at Suffolk County Community College in New York. After receiving a Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship, she transferred to the California Institute of the Arts, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in photography and media in 2012. She now plans to attend the University of Oxford to study for a master of fine arts degree and a Ph.D. in contemporary art practice.

A total of 45 Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarships will be awarded in the spring. A review panel of university admissions professionals and faculty will judge scholarship applicants based on their achievements and academic ability, financial need, persistence, leadership and service to others.

To be eligible for the scholarship, a student must: 1) currently attend an accredited community college or have graduated from a community college since 2013, 2) have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or better, 3) demonstrate significant unmet financial need, and 4) plan to enroll in a full-time baccalaureate program at an accredited college or university in fall 2018.

Cooke Scholarships fund the costs of attending college not covered by other financial aid, plus academic advising, stipends for internships, study abroad, and opportunities to network with other Cooke Scholars and alumni. In addition, after earning a bachelor’s degree, Cooke Scholars may be eligible to apply for the Cooke Graduate Scholarship.

To find out more about the Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship, and to start your application, please visit our site.

The Cooke Foundation is dedicated to advancing the education of exceptionally promising students who have financial need. Since 2000, the foundation has awarded $175 million in scholarships to more than 2,300 students from 8th grade through graduate school, along with comprehensive counseling and other support services. The foundation has also provided over $97 million in grants to organizations that serve such students. www.jkcf.org
