Suffolk Program Encourages Women Pursue Technology Related Careers

Eleven students – all female – worked on a real-life architectural project that provided them with work experience and hands-on architectural experience.

The four-day program at Suffolk County Community College, funded by a grant to encourage women to pursue technology-related careers, enabled students to prepare preliminary designs for a new, moderate-sized home in Mattituck.

The project demonstrated to the students the process architects typically go through in analyzing the site, researching local and state codes, and designing a building in multiple phases. The group also reviewed New York State’s education and work experience requirements related to obtaining an architectural professional license.

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.
