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.

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 –

Kathleen Italiano
Suffolk County Community College, North Building- OPIE
533 College Road, Selden, NY 11784

Eastern Campus –

Janine Tortortella
Suffolk County Community College, Peconic Bld Room 216
121 Speonk-Riverhead Road, Riverhead, NY 11901

Michael J. Grant Campus –
