Valentine and Proteus, the two gentlemen of Verona, fall for the same girl, Silvia, which leads to a spectacular quarrel. Using the ploy of disguises, true love prevails and the friends are reconciled and look to share one mutual happiness.

Registration Open: 4/20/18 3rd Annual Student Diversity Leadership Conference

DiversityConference2018TO:                  Ammerman Campus Community

FROM:           P. Wesley Lundburg, Executive Dean

SUBJECT:    3rd Annual Student Diversity Leadership Conference

The AASU (African American Student Union) Student Leadership Development conference is an annual event hosted by the students to create a sense of community and address both academic and social issues that concern our students. The conference includes interactive workshops, leadership training, networking opportunities and a forum for students to connect with their peers, faculty and administration from all campuses.

As Suffolk County Community College and the surrounding community become increasingly more diverse, students are becoming more aware of the impact of their presence and voice to further positive changes implemented by the college administration. This year’s conference is the next step in students engaging in conversations to create even more diverse perspectives within the classroom, in the classroom and with the campus community.

Please join the students and encourage your classes to participate on Friday, April 20th and hear what our students have to say. You can register to attend the event by either clicking on this link:  Register here: or registering at the sign-up sheet located at the Information booth in the Babylon Student Center.

State Grant to Suffolk Launches Coalition to Target Underage Alcohol, Tobacco,  Use on Suffolk County Community College Campus as Well as In Surrounding Brentwood Community

CDCPrevention specialist and CDC Prevention Program Coordinator Kathleen Flynn-Bisson, standing at right, leads Community Coalition members gathered at a recent meeting kicking off Suffolk County Community College’s efforts to stem substance abuse among teens.

Suffolk County Community College’s Michael J. Grant Campus Chemical Dependency Counseling (CDC) Program has launched a community coalition to reduce underage alcohol use, tobacco and other drug consumption on the campus as well as in the surrounding Brentwood community. The effort is being funded by a $690,704, five-year, New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) – College Environmental Prevention Grant awarded to the college last year and unanimously adopted by the Suffolk County Legislature on February 6.

A newly formed campus community coalition is the driving force behind the effort and will implement strategies to reduce availability and problems associated with drinking, substance misuse and abuse.

Coalition members include representatives from various Suffolk County Community College departments as well as community members, including parents, teachers, law enforcement, businesses, religious leaders, health providers and other community activists who are mobilizing at the local level to make their communities safer, healthier and drug-free.

Prevention specialist and CDC Prevention Program Coordinator Kathleen Flynn-Bisson will spearhead the coalition’s efforts. Flynn-Bisson said the coalition will focus on:

  • preventing access or the methods in which underage youth procure alcohol e.g., fake identification or third party transactions
  • changing the campus community norms that promote underage drinking
  • prevention and reduction of drug use including prescription misuse.

Flynn-Bisson said one of the first actions of the group was an Alcohol, Tobacco & Other Drug Survey to evaluate student’s concerns, attitudes and knowledge about drinking and drug use, their experience with individuals who have been drinking, and their own experiences with alcohol and other drugs. A random sample of Grant campus students were sent an email inviting them to participate in the survey that will be conducted three times over the next five years. The results of the survey will give the coalition a better understanding of current substance use issues and in turn will guide their prevention efforts.

Gerald Kurz, a loadmaster with the 102nd Rescue Squadron assigned to the the 106th Rescue Wing and current student at Suffolk County Community College, describes the details of the HC-130 P/N King to Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay, left. 

Suffolk County Community College will offer courses at Francis S. Gabreski Air National Guard base, home of the 106th Rescue Wing, located in Westhampton Beach this spring. A first for the 106th Rescue Wing and the college.

Suffolk County Community College will offer two courses this spring that will enable Air National Guard members to gain credits towards an associate degree from the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF). The CCAF degree is mandatory for higher level promotions. Psychology 101 begins on February 1 and English 101 follows on February 6.

The 106th Rescue Wing Command Chief, Michael T. Hewson said, “In the Air Force, we expect our members to strive for excellence. One of the ways we can do this is though continuing our education.”

Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay announced the innovative program with wing leadership last fall at a dedication ceremony for a Veterans Plaza at the college’s Eastern Campus honoring Suffolk County Community College student and Air National Guard Tech. Sgt. Louis Bonacasa, 31, killed in action in December of 2015 while serving in Afghanistan as a security forces defender.

“Suffolk County Community College is committed to assisting our military by helping them achieve their educational and personal goals. In the process, we know we are fulfilling our community mission as well as helping to produce a new generation of lifelong learners equipped with the skills they can utilize both during their careers and long after,” said College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

Dr. McKay added that the program will continue for the foreseeable future.
