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.

Diaz, Ph.D., LMSW, executive director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation.  “The Maserati Weekend is perhaps the most unique raffle we’ve ever offered and our guests absolutely love the opportunity to win such a prize.  Just imagine the experience of driving around Long Island in a fine Italian sports car!  Where would you go?”

The Salute to Excellence Gala celebrating labor leader, Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO and the college will be held on May 4 at the Hilton Long Island in Huntington.

“We will celebrate and recognize a great labor leader whose advocacy for education and the middle class has helped advanced the most important engine in creating the American Dream and a better life for each generation,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

“The mission of the Foundation is to reduce the economic barriers to higher education and foster student success.  The Salute to Excellence Gala is the College’s single largest event held annually to generate financial support, community awareness and most importantly make a difference in the lives of our students,” said Executive Director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation Dr. Sylvia A Diaz. The celebration will begin at 7 pm.

4/23/17 – Selden, NY: Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

Out Of the Darkness Walk

Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

Sunday, April 23, 2017 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

FROM:           Dr. Thomas S. Tyson. College Associate Dean for Mental Health Services

Subject:          Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

I am pleased to share with you that the College will be hosting an Out of the Darkness Campus Walk on Sunday, April 23rd from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on the Ammerman Campus in Selden.  This event, which seeks to increase awareness about suicide and raise funds to fight it, will benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

Join a quarter of a million people from hundreds of cities across all 50 states to raise awareness and funds that will save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. This will be the first Out of the Darkness walk to take place at a college on Long Island.  We thank Ammerman Campus student, Anne Deubel, for proposing this event idea.  Anne, working  closely with Sarah Boles, Faculty Coordinator for Mental Health Services, has been able to initiate the planning necessary to introduce a local Long Island walk on a Suffolk campus.

When someone participates in the Out of the Darkness Campus Walk, they join the effort with thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow AFSP to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.  We are looking for supporters in the college community who understand the growing concern about suicidal behavior and are willing to do something to bolster efforts to prevent suicide.

For more information, please go online and visit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) or their Out of the Darkness Walks-New York sites. To provide you with more information, there will be a meeting on Wednesday, April 5th, in the Southampton Building, Room 230 on the Ammerman Campus.  Anyone who would like to join the committee or participate in the event is invited to attend.

Thank you in advance for considering providing support to this important initiative.
