Win a Weekend with a Sleek Italian Sports Car at the 2017 Suffolk Gala

Maserati

Want to spend a weekend with a sleek Italian sports car? Here’s your chance!

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. 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.

Gala sponsorship, tickets and journal advertisements are available now through the Suffolk Community College Foundation website: https://sunysuffolk.thankyou4caring.org/events/salute-to-excellence-gala

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.

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.
