Thirteen from Suffolk County Community College to Receive SUNY Chancellor’s Award

Suffolk County Community College students will be recognized by State University of New York (SUNY) Chancellor Nancy Zimpher according to Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay who said that 13 of his college’s students will be presented with The Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence on April 5.

“These selected students,” said Dr. McKay, “are perfect examples of the core values of our college — engagement, academic excellence and service to others.”

The award, created in 1997, honors SUNY students who have demonstrated and been recognized for their integration of academic excellence with other aspects of their lives, including leadership, campus involvement, athletics, career achievement, community service or creative and performing arts. Each awardee will be presented with a medallion and certificate from Chancellor Zimpher.

The 2017 Chancellor’s Awards for Student Excellence will take place on Wednesday, April 5th at 2 p.m. at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center in Albany.

Each year, SUNY campus presidents establish a selection committee to review the accomplishments of exemplary students. Nominees are then forwarded to the Chancellor’s Office for a second round of review. Finalists are then recommended to the Chancellor to become recipients of the award. Each recipient receives a framed certificate and medallion, which is traditionally worn at commencement.

Attracting More Women Into STEM: Suffolk’s Dr. Candice Foley Invited to International STEM Gender Conference in Berlin

Breaking The Gender Barrier in STEM

Suffolk County Community College Professor of Chemistry Dr. Candice Foley has been invited to attend the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Gender Equality Congress in Berlin, Germany on June 8 -9.  Foley is Suffolk’s National Science Foundation S-STEM Chair.

The STEM Gender Equality congress will be attended by policy makers, equality staff, the private sector, academic staff, government representatives and others for two days of thought-provoking addresses, high-level panel discussions, and in-depth case studies and discussions.

“Because there remains a persistent gender gap in college degrees in STEM, Suffolk’s presence at this International Gender Equality Conference will highlight the success of our vast network of collaborations within our college, SUNY, statewide and nationally for connecting underrepresented female STEM students to educational opportunities that prepare them to compete for the highest quality jobs of today and the future,” said Dr. Candice Foley, Professor of Chemistry and the College’s NSF S-STEM PI.   Foley explained that Suffolk County Community College is a crucial entry point enabling underrepresented women in STEM to bridge from the community college to the baccalaureate level, on to graduate school and into the STEM workforce.

“It is no secret that women are underrepresented in STEM fields,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “In 2014, nationally, only 29% of the bachelor’s degrees awarded to women were in science and engineering, compared with 40% for men, according to the National Student Clearinghouse,” McKay said. “Dr. Foley has been at the forefront of advancing our College’s STEM students and programs.”

Suffolk County Community College Board of Trustees Chair Theresa Sanders explained the college’s commitment to STEM programs and successes:  “Improving America’s STEM education has become a top priority across the nation. At Suff¬olk, approximately 1,500 students are currently enrolled in STEM majors and the College’s STEM program has been producing award winning students while providing summer research internships at internationally renowned facilities, including Brookhaven National Laboratory, NASA, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory among others,” Sanders said.

Cuba Bound: Suffolk Pair Represent USA at International Women Festival Magdalena sin Fronteras

1/6/2017

margarita-espada-santosMargarita Espada, coordinator for the Shakespeare Festival at Suffolk County Community College, and a performer artist and educator in collaboration with Joan Wozniak, a Suffolk County Community College Media Services photographer and videographer will travel to Santa Clara, Cuba to represent the United States at the International Women Festival Magdalena sin Fronteras from January 10 – 20. The festival theme will be Lives: Group, Theater,  and Reality; and will include theater makers worldwide.

Espada’s “Resilience” is a devised performance installation that explores language on stage and investigates new narratives. The actor’s body and new technology are used to create a conversation about borders, identity and adapting in the face of adversity, trauma, or crisis. Espada and Wozniak will also lecture about her research on the role of the actor and theatre narratives in the new digital era.

Joan Wozniak is a multimedia storyteller who collaborates with Espada as a visual artist.  Wozniak integrates images, projectors, connectors, digital sensors and created new computer code to control the performance’s interactive technology. Wozniak uses images to represent the facets of experience, reality, and memory. Interaction and projection give scale and context to the live actor. This piece will explore new theater language and relationship of image/actor/audience.

The Magdalena Project is a dynamic cross-cultural network of women’s theatre and performance, facilitating critical discussion, support, and training.
