Achieving the Dream – Shark Bytes Data Point #4

This past spring, Suffolk County Community College was chosen to participate as a member of Achieving the Dream’s 2016 cohort. We will begin the College’s Achieving the Dream conversation by examining data points that will support future discussions addressing challenging questions related to: 1) our institutional mission, 2) the concept of student success and equity for all members of our diverse student body, and 3) how best to ensure that all students successfully attain the completion goals they set for themselves when they first enrolled here at Suffolk.  Additional data points will be sent to your attention weekly from the College’s Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness.

Suffolk Innovative Theater Program Welcomes Romanian Performers to College Stage

antisocial

Antisocial, a production by Radu Stanca National Theatre of Sibiu, Romania and Lucian Blaga University will be performed at Suffolk County Community College on September 27.


A Suffolk County Community College Theater Arts study abroad program named “one of four outstanding proposals” by SUNY earlier this year, and awarded a SUNY Chancellor’s Grant for Innovative Study Abroad Programs will kick off the fall semester by welcoming a Romanian theater group to the college’s Ammerman Campus later this month.

The performance on September 27 at Suffolk’s Shea Theatre on the Selden Campus is produced by Radu Stanca National Theatre of Sibiu, Romania and Lucian Blaga University and will feature a performance of Antisocial.  Antisocial is the story of high school students in Romania who create a secret group on social media. The teachers find out, infiltrate and take action; with the support of some of the students.

Next spring, Suffolk County Community College Theater Arts students will collaborate with students from Lucian Blaga University utilizing the SUNY Collaborative Online International Learning Model that employs a variety a technological tools (social media, Skype) in a team taught class.  The students will travel to Romania next summer to perform with their Romanian counterparts at the Sibiu International Theatre Festival. The Sibiu International Theatre Festival has grown in importance and prestige since its founding in the early 1990’s and attracts participants from more than 70 countries, has hundreds of scheduled events and in years past has attracted more than a half million spectators during its 10-day run. Attendees include performing arts groups, filmmakers and critics.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for our students to not only participate in study abroad, but to collaborate and perform with their contemporaries starting from their laptops to such a prestigious international festival,” said Suffolk County Community College Director of Theatre Arts and Academic Chair Charles Wittreich, Jr. ’86

Suffolk County Community College 2016 Commencement

Newsday – May 15, 2016 By James T. Madore james.madore@newsday.com

Suffolk County Community College held its 54th commencement ceremony Sunday at the college’s Brentwood campus.
Number of graduates 4,398 across 3 campuses — most in the college’s history
Commencement speaker

H. Carl McCall, chairman of the SUNY board of trustees, spoke about growing up in a family that received “welfare checks”, earning a college degree and having his name on every state check after being elected state comptroller. He urged the graduates to be VIPs – to be visionary, have integrity and participate in society. “Never underestimate the power you hold to change the course of policy and to change history,” he said.
Student speakers

Juhara Bushra, 21, of Ronkonkoma, who earned an associate degree in liberal arts/general studies and plans to become a physician, said, “You have made it here today because of your hardwork and determination — keep up the good work, listen to your heart and trust yourself with your own future.”

Matthew Sclafani, 20, of Lake Grove, who graduated with an associate degree in business administration and will attend the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, said, “Dedicate yourself completely to whatever it is you choose to do in life.”

Nkrumah “Nick” Gordon, 38, of Holbrook, who earned an associate degree in nursing and hopes eventually to become a nursing professor, said, “The faculty and counselors here have helped me to forge a key that can never be lost or broken: an education that will not only transform my life but the lives of my family and the patients that I will care for.” Student reactions

Sue A. Washburn, 56, accounting

“Now that I have my degree, I hope I can move up at the environmental services company that I work for, maybe become controller,” said Washburn, of Patchogue.

Sattarock A. Blackwood, 23, criminal justice

“I’m going to CUNY/John Jay College in the fall and plan to become a cop, hopefully in Suffolk County,” said Blackwood, of Manorville.

Danielle M. Hartmann, 21, liberal arts

“I’m thinking about going into physical therapy because I like seeing people get better,” said Hartmann, of Hauppauge.

Matthew Williams, 20, communications

“I’ll be studying communications and sports management in the fall at the University of Connecticut and I hope to go into public relations for a professional sports team; if I’m lucky, it will be the Islanders,” said Williams, of Centereach.

Newsday – Certificate programs: A shortcut to new careers

Certificate programs: A shortcut to new careers

March 10, 2016 By Jim Merritt Special to Newsday

Christine Graf

After Christine Graf’s job as a graphic artist was outsourced last August, the Nesconset resident, at age 59, decided to make a 180-degree career correction and cook up a new occupation for herself.

With time to spare and a severance package to float her, Graf is getting a fresh start in a field far from desktop publishing by earning a certificate in baking and pastry arts from Suffolk County Community College in Riverhead.

“I’ve always enjoyed baking, I have an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie that everyone liked, and I’m also famous for my raspberry squares,” Graf says. She first learned her way around an oven in her mother’s kitchen in Copiague, and always shared pies, batches of brownies and other baked goodies with co-workers.

These days, Graf spends her Fridays teaming up with other future chefs to complete assignments for baking and pastry assistant professor Richard Amster. Going to pastry school isn’t all sweetness and light, though. On Wednesdays Graf spends classroom time learning about sanitation regulations and restaurant management. Tuition for the community college certificate program costs about $9,000.

Graf hopes to start earning some of that investment back when she rejoins the working world as a professional baker at a restaurant or craft fair. She’s even thinking of starting her own business at the Stony Brook University Business Incubator.

“It’s exciting, and it’s also a little bit scary to be out of your comfort zone,” Graf says.

Long Islanders who want to jump-start a new career, or improve chances for a promotion in their current job, are getting a boost from certificate programs in a variety of fields — not only in pastry arts but also interior decorating, document translation, business management and solar energy. If you’ve been tossed from your job through attrition or downsizing, held back by the lack of a degree, or want to leap into an entirely new field, certificate programs are generally less expensive, and take less time to complete, than a traditional associate’s or bachelor’s degree, education experts say.

If you decide to return to school, and you’re 50 or older, you’ll most likely fit right in. Jo Anne Durovich, chairwoman of the Human Services department at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue, says the overwhelming majority of students enrolled in the school’s certificate programs, such as gerontology and alcohol and addictions counseling, are mature adults starting second careers.

“They are my strongest students; they have the discipline of already having entire careers and raising families,” Durovich says.

The vast majority of certificate students go back to school either for a career change or advancement, says Shawn O’Riley, dean of University College, the Adelphi University program for working adults. “Occasionally it’s folks who are kind of looking for self improvement,” he adds.

A significant number, like Celine Rogan of East Hampton, are driven by concern that the lack of a college credential is holding them back at work. “The one thing that always gnawed away at me was not finishing my college education,” says Rogan, who is 54. After graduating in 1979 from Sacred Heart Academy in Hempstead, Rogan had completed two semesters of liberal arts studies at Nassau Community College in Garden City. But she dropped out to work full-time in the city before getting her degree. As operations manager for a Long Island transportation company, she’s surrounded by millennials with bachelor’s degrees. “I felt like I could have easily done the same thing that they did and improved my career chances,” she says.

With better-late-than-ever resolve, Rogan is taking a 32-credit certificate in business management from Suffolk County Community College in Riverhead. She’s two classes away from completing a certificate that she says will make her “a lot more hirable,” and halfway to the associate’s degree her heart’s set on.

Although credit certificate programs can be applied to an associate’s or bachelor’s degree, many are taken for no academic credit. However, the goal remains the same: to learn the basic skills for a job — with no time spent on liberal arts courses.

That no-frills arrangement appeals to many older students. “I am always anxious to get going quickly in things, so I felt the certificate program would give me the skills needed to start my business,” says Judy Insinga, 67, of Bellmore. She’s planning to apply what she’s learned in a New York Institute of Technology interior design certificate program at a painted furniture store she’s starting up with her longtime friend and interior decorating classmate, Mary Canty, 52, of Baldwin.

Not interested in running your own business? Certificate programs can also add a marketable skill that puts post-retirement bucks in your pocket or purse.

“One day when I retire from education I want translation to be a source of income,” says Olga Castro, 54, of Manhasset, a second-grade bilingual teacher at Powells Lane School in Westbury. Translating English to Spanish and vice versa comes naturally to Castro, who immigrated to the United States from Caracas, Venezuela, at age 18. She earned a bachelor of arts degree in music and a master of science degree in education, both from Queens College in Flushing, with extra credit in bilingual studies. “I love both languages,” she says.

The idea to return to college yet again occurred to Castro after she volunteered to translate documents for her district. She earned a Translation Studies Certificate from Adelphi five years ago. She takes on work pro bono to build a resume for the day when she can charge for her translation services. The certificate has also made her a better bilingual teacher, she says.

Not every certificate program ends with a job placement.

Keith Carpenter, 55, of Brentwood, says he couldn’t find a job after he completed a pharmacy technician certificate program at a Long Island college. So he tried again at Suffolk Community. Advisors tested and interviewed Carpenter, and recommended that he choose a field closer to the associate’s degree in heat, ventilation and air conditioning he had earned from Farmingdale State College.

“When they saw my background in engineering, they wanted to know if I would take this course they had for solar energy,” Carpenter says.

Carpenter, who worked as a disaster relief agent for the Federal Emergency Management Agency after superstorm Sandy in 2012 and Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, recently completed an Energy Rater certificate.

The new credential qualifies him for a job as an energy auditor for residential and commercial solar power companies. The solar job would pay about $10,000 more than his current position as a manager at an engineering company in Ronkonkoma.

Says Carpenter: “I feel good because I had a couple of interviews and they were very promising.”

Suffolk CCC wins men’s junior college bowling championship

February 27, 2016 6:33 PM
By Jordan Lauterbach  jordan.lauterbach@newsday.com

After last season’s second place finish at the Junior College National Championships, there was only direction for the Suffolk County Community College men’s bowling team to go, up. Up towards distinction, up towards a national championship.

And up they went. Suffolk CCC dominated the 20-team field en route to a national title at Airport Lanes in Cheektowaga, N.Y. on Saturday. John Kavanaugh led the eight-man team, bowling a 266 high game. Michael Kissel rolled a 234 high game. James Tagliaferro added a 223 and Michael Ruben had a 222.

Kavanaugh and Tagliaferro also won the doubles national title, shooting a collective 1,234 over three games.

“This was the best team we’ve had in 20 years,” coach Ken Rao said. “We knew this was going to be the team that would do it for us . . . Last year we took second place and missed (a championship) by a little bit. This year we knew we would come back and win.”

Rao, along with his co-coach Rob Dertinger, were named coaches of the year.

In the women’s competition, SCCC’s Emily Clarke and Brianna Meyer placed second in the doubles competition. Meyer was second in the singles competition.

Clarke, Meyer, Kissel and Ruben were named to the All-American team.
