FROM:           P. Wesley Lundburg, Executive Dean

SUBJECT:    3rd Annual Student Diversity Leadership Conference

The AASU (African American Student Union) Student Leadership Development conference is an annual event hosted by the students to create a sense of community and address both academic and social issues that concern our students. The conference includes interactive workshops, leadership training, networking opportunities and a forum for students to connect with their peers, faculty and administration from all campuses.

As Suffolk County Community College and the surrounding community become increasingly more diverse, students are becoming more aware of the impact of their presence and voice to further positive changes implemented by the college administration. This year’s conference is the next step in students engaging in conversations to create even more diverse perspectives within the classroom, in the classroom and with the campus community.

Please join the students and encourage your classes to participate on Friday, April 20th and hear what our students have to say. You can register to attend the event by either clicking on this link:  Register here: or registering at the sign-up sheet located at the Information booth in the Babylon Student Center.

Suffolk Responds: Fight Ignorance, Not Immigrants March 19 – March 23

TO:                  The College Community

FROM:           Dr. Christopher Adams, Vice President for Student Affairs

SUBJECT:     Suffolk Responds:  Fight Ignorance, Not Immigrants

Undocumented Students, DACA, and TPS Recipient Resources

The College remains committed to its goals of diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice. Suffolk County Community College serves as an open access institution for all students who seek higher education, including undocumented students, DACA recipients, and Temporary Protective Status holders.

As President McKay stated in College Brief #2 (issued on September 6, 2017), “Together, as a community, we must commit ourselves to tolerance, to understanding, and to advocating for those who need our help at this moment in time.  This involves a commitment from everyone. Embracing social justice is at the core of why we do what we do.”  As a reminder, the College, with support from the Undocumented Student Task Force, maintains current information regarding DACA, DACA renewal, current TPS status and resources for TPS holders at the following web address http://libguides.sunysuffolk.edu/daca-renewal, which can also be found from the College homepage, by clicking on “Experience Student Life,” followed by “DACA and Undocumented students.”

I am also pleased to share with you that the Undocumented Student Task Force and the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding are co-sponsoring “Suffolk Responds:  Fight Ignorance, Not Immigrants,” a full week of awareness programs that have been scheduled to take place on our campuses between March 19 – March 23.  The attached flyer contains all of the details for each program.

Suffolk Responds 2018-3

Please note that all programs are open to all members of the College and local community.  If you are interested in bringing your class to any of these events, please call the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding at (631) 451-4117.
