Will You Make a Difference in the Life of A Student Today?

GivingTuesday Logos

Your gift to the Suffolk Community College Foundation is a critical resource that empowers students, faculty and staff to make seemingly impossible ideas possible and turns dreams into realities, all while helping to build a solid foundation for the future of Suffolk County Community College. Your gift to the Annual Fund will have immediate and ongoing impact.

As a special bonus, you’ll receive a beautiful customized Suffolk fleece jacket if you decide to contribute $100 or more.

Here is what our students receiving support say:

“I am writing to express how grateful I am to have received the Student Hardship Grant. When I had heard that I was selected for this I was more than thrilled to know my financial burdens would be lightened. It is also very helpful to know that there are people out there who care about the success of others when it is hard enough to believe in yourself. I have experienced difficulty during school and I must say that this has helped me in so many ways.” – Resident of Southold, NY

“This foundation has honestly made me more aware of the needs of others and wanting to help those less fortunate than me. Just the other day a homeless lady sitting outside of Taco Bell asked me for spare change to get something to eat. I didn’t have any extra money so I gave her the food I had ordered for myself.”  – Resident of Coram, NY

Suffolk Culinary Students Partner With Community Action Southold Town, Prepare Thanksgiving Dinners for East End Families

Thanksgiving Cooking

 A Thanksgiving Tradition: Suffolk County Community College Culinary students prepare Thanksgiving meals for needy families. 

Suffolk County Community College’s Culinary Arts program students will prepare about 200 dinners for Community Action Southold Town’s (CAST) Greenport food pantry in what has become an annual and happy undertaking for the college’s culinary program and its students.

This is the first year Suffolk’s Culinary program has worked with CAST, a not-for-profit that has worked in Southold Town since 1965  to help low-income residents meet basic needs in the areas of nutrition, employment, energy, and education. CAST exists as a safety net for Southold Town families from Laurel to Orient Point, including Fisher’s Island. The majority of CAST’s funding comes from the generosity of the community.

This marks the ninth year Suffolk County Community College students and faculty have happily volunteered their culinary expertise to support the holiday cooking.

The dinner preparation will take place on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 beginning at 8 a.m. at the Suffolk County Community College Culinary Arts & Hospitality Center, 20 East Main St., Riverhead, NY 11901. Cooking and packaging the meals will run through to 12 noon.

“We celebrate Thanksgiving by cooking and sharing our favorite foods, being with the ones we love and giving thanks for all that we have. Our college and students, faculty and staff enjoy giving back to our community,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

About 40 students and faculty chefs from the college’s culinary program will prepare the meal whose ingredients are provided by CAST —  more than 20 turkeys; 100 pounds of mashed potatoes; 50 pounds of sweet potatoes; 80 pounds of stuffing; 25 pounds of assorted vegetables and 20 each of apple and pumpkin pies. And, of course, gravy – more than 5 gallons of it!

The Clinton Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church, 614 Third Street, Greenport is working in collaboration with CAST for people who want to gather and eat their hot turkey dinner in fellowship with their neighbors or pick up a meal to take home. The church will distribute meals on Wednesday Nov 22 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

9/14/17 Fall Presidential Lecture Series Guest: Ndaba Mandela

August 28, 2017

TO:                  The College Community

FROM:            Dr. Shaun L. McKay, President

SUBJECT:     Fall Presidential Lecture Series Guest Announced:

Ndaba Mandela – Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 11 a.m.

 

I am pleased to announce the fall 2017 Presidential Lecture Series to be presented at Suffolk County Community College. This forum is meant to engage the college community in meaningful conversations that can inspire each of us to bring about positive change in our communities. It also provides the College with an opportunity to meet its mission-related strategic goal of enhancing community enrichment through increased participation in social and cultural events and activities conducted by the College or in partnership with external stakeholders.

This semester’s presentation will be delivered by Ndaba Mandela, grandson of the South African activist and former president, Nelson Mandela. Ndaba’s lecture is entitled, “From Prisoner to President: The Mandela Legacy Lives On.”  The lecture will take place on Thursday, September 14th at 11 a.m. in the Shea Theater on the Ammerman Campus in Selden; it will also be streamed to the Sagtikos Theater on the Michael J. Grant Campus and the Montaukett Learning Resource Center, Room 107/108.

In his presentation, Ndaba describes what it was like to first meet his iconic grandfather at age 11—when Nelson Mandela was finally released from prison and Ndaba lived with him in the Presidential Palace shortly thereafter. Ndaba tells tales and shares the inspiring, and often amusing, anecdotes told to him directly from his doting grandfather. Ndaba also describes to his audiences, both the joy and the strain he feels having the awesome responsibility of the world’s expectations to be counted on, and considered as, the “2nd chapter” of the Mandela story.

Tickets will be required for this event on the Ammerman Campus. If you would like to reserve space for your class, or for more information about the presentations, please contact Jill Santiago at the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding at santiaj@sunysuffolk.edu.

Restorative Nature, Paintings and Sculpture by Gina Gilmour, Sept. 5 – Oct. 24 at Suffolk County Community College

Oil Painting

oil on canvas 70 x 70

Restorative Nature is an exhibit of paintings and sculpture by Gina Gilmour ranging from small ceramic sculptures to paintings up to six feet high.

Gilmour depicts transformations using the rhythms and images of nature and personal history. Some works are of plush jungle foliage unfurling an awakening figure, while others show a tiny swimmer enjoying her humble place in a vast rippling sea. Still others use a layering of images: animals, people, and places in patterned memory compositions. “I paint experiences that I am working through, and it often leads me to ongoing painting cycles and to some resolve or restorative place,” Gilmour said.

Gilmour is the recipient of a number of artists’ fellowships that have taken her around the world, including the American Field Service Program in Okayama, Japan; The MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire; The Karolyi Foundation Fellowship in France; The Julia and David White Artists’ Colony Fellowship in Costa Rica; and The William Steeple Davis Foundation Residency in Orient, NY. Gilmour has exhibited her work in various museums and galleries including the National Museum of Women in the Arts (Washington, DC); The Alternative Museum (New York, NY); and the Ron Feldman Gallery (New York, NY).  Her work is in numerous public collections including The Newark Museum (Newark, NJ); The North Carolina Museum of Art (Raleigh, NC); and the Bechtler Museum of Contemporary Art (Charlotte, NC).  Gilmour received a B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College, Bronxville, NY.

Restorative Nature will run from Sept. 5 through Oct. 24, 2017 at The Lyceum Gallery, in the Montaukett Learning Resource Center on the Eastern Campus of Suffolk County Community College, Riverhead.  A public reception will be held on Wednesday, Sept.13 from 4 to 6 p.m.  Refreshments will be served.

Gallery hours:
Monday – Thursday, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Saturday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The gallery is closed on Sundays and holidays (exceptions: gallery closes at 5:30 on Wed., 9/20 and 3:30 on Tues., 10/10; gallery closed on Thurs, 9/21 and Sat., 9/30).

Call (631) 548-2536 for more information.
