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.

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Give the Gift of Sight

FACTS: 

In the western world, we take vision for granted  !!!  

We think nothing of spending hundreds of dollars for eyeglasses, contact lenses or corrective eye surgery. Good eyesight for us is essential as it affects every aspect of our waking lives.

It is equally essential for hundreds of millions of people in developing world countries who need glasses but don’t have them. Poor eyesight for them can mean the difference between working and not working, gathering enough food or going hungry, being able to read or remaining illiterate.

13 Million Children around the world need glasses. Many of these children risk missing their education because they cannot see well enough to learn    :  (

Imagine yourself with blurred vision…all day long….all month long…all year long.       :  (

YOU get the picture!  SO WHAT CAN YOU DO ???   While  you are SPRING cleaning,  when you find those old glasses that you usually toss back into the draw  (for emergencies) … pick them up and send them to US so we can help some of the half billion people of all ages to be able to have SIGHT !!

You can send your used (but not broken) eyewear to me at the address below.  Please do NOT send eye glass cases.  Just wrap in a bubble wrap or a paper towel- mark your package FRAGILE and send to:

Ammerman Campus –

Thursday, April 20, 2017, Heroin Epidemic, Broken and Losing, Time is Running Out

Heroin Epidemic

More than 50,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2015 — the most ever, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

What can be done? How do we stop it?

Dr. Frank Maletz and Coach Jim Spellman discuss the epidemic, the science of addiction, the drug sources, and the future at a special gathering at Suffolk County Community College on Thursday April 20, 2017, 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m., at the Michael J. Grant Campus’ Health Sports and Education Center, room MD105.

The program, Heroin Epidemic, Broken and Losing, Time is Running Out features Dr. Frank Maletz, a CACS Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon who has taken on a second career as a American Medical Practices and Facilities Futurist and become a pioneer in advocating for cautionary prescribing of opioid medications. Dr. Maletz was among the first to speak out about the use of opioid prescription abuse/addiction to street Heroin.

Coach Jim Spellman was a classroom teacher of English and American History and a highly successful high school football coach. He concluded his career in education as an administrator specializing in active shooter/emergency response protocols and policies. The deaths of former students by Heroin led him to lead volunteer awareness and education programs. In January of 2017, Spellman traveled to Afghanistan to investigate Heroin at its primary source.

A weekend with a 2017 Maserati is being raffled at the Suffolk Community College Foundation’s Annual Salute to Excellence Gala, on Thursday, May 4.

The Maserati for a weekend is courtesy of Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island who has been a supporter of the Suffolk Community College Foundation’s fundraising efforts for the past four years.

“Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island is a generous and caring organization that provides financial support for the students of Suffolk County Community College,” said Sylvia A.

“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.

Suffolk to Host Research Conference, Garners Major Foundation Support

It’s a community college first.

Suffolk County Community College will be the first community college to host a SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference (SURC) it was announced by Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. In another first, McKay said, the conference has garnered the support of a major research foundation, the Swachman Diamond Project, that will provide an endowed STEM scholarship. McKay said it is rare for community colleges to be recognized by and receive the support of major research foundations.

SURC, hosted each year by a different SUNY institution,  will bring together more than 1,000 undergraduate student researchers and faculty mentors from more than 25 SUNY and CUNY colleges for a full day devoted to student presentations in wide-ranging disciplines, including science, the performing arts, humanities, and others.

A luncheon will feature keynote speaker SUNY Stony Brook President Sam Stanley.  SURC will also include a SUNY Graduate School and Transfer Fair, and professional development workshops for students and faculty.

“Original research and creative activity are widely recognized as high-impact educational experiences that positively affect undergraduate students’ completion rates, career prospects and readiness for transfer and graduate study. Most SUNY campuses encourage research and creative activity throughout the curriculum, in capstone experiences and/or internship placements. This is a tremendous opportunity for all involved and we look forward to sharing this student-focused event with you,” said President McKay.

“We are delighted to partner with the Shwachman Diamond Project to advance STEM research”, explained Sylvia A. Diaz, Ph.D., LMSW, Executive Director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation.  “Their award provides support to present the highly regarded SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference (SURC) and will raise awareness of Shwachman Diamond Syndrome and other rare bone marrow failure conditions, but they went even further and made a generous gift to permanently endow the Shwachman Diamond Project Undergraduate Research Scholarship at Suffolk County Community College.  This scholarship will be awarded annually to Suffolk’s promising science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students who are engaged in scientific research.”

The Shwachman Diamond Project Ltd. was established in 2005 as a 501(c)3 charitable organization with a mission of fundraising to support research into treatments and a potential cure for Shwachman Diamond Syndrome and other bone marrow failure syndromes. In keeping with this mission, the organization works to encourage cord blood collection and funds research projects related to this area. 

Since its inception, SDP has funded many research projects, including the development of The Shwachman Diamond Syndrome Registry at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington.

“Suffolk County Community College has set the bar high as the first community college to host this prestigious research conference and the first to receive funding to offset conference costs with generous gifts from the Shwachman Diamond Project and scientific publisher Elsevier,” explained SURC East Coordinator Candice Foley, Ph.D., a Professor of Chemistry and STEM Chair at Suffolk County Community College.  “Moreover, another first was achieved by securing funds to support scholarships for community college undergraduate researchers who will continue on the successful path to discovery at Suffolk and beyond.”

SURC is a multidisciplinary spring semester event hosted each year by a different SUNY institution. The third annual SURC will be hosted at two SUNY locations: SURC East at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood, on Friday April 21 and SURC West on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at SUNY Fredonia.
