Achieving the Dream – Shark Bytes Data Point #4

This past spring, Suffolk County Community College was chosen to participate as a member of Achieving the Dream’s 2016 cohort. We will begin the College’s Achieving the Dream conversation by examining data points that will support future discussions addressing challenging questions related to: 1) our institutional mission, 2) the concept of student success and equity for all members of our diverse student body, and 3) how best to ensure that all students successfully attain the completion goals they set for themselves when they first enrolled here at Suffolk.  Additional data points will be sent to your attention weekly from the College’s Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness.

Suffolk Innovative Theater Program Welcomes Romanian Performers to College Stage

antisocial

Antisocial, a production by Radu Stanca National Theatre of Sibiu, Romania and Lucian Blaga University will be performed at Suffolk County Community College on September 27.


A Suffolk County Community College Theater Arts study abroad program named “one of four outstanding proposals” by SUNY earlier this year, and awarded a SUNY Chancellor’s Grant for Innovative Study Abroad Programs will kick off the fall semester by welcoming a Romanian theater group to the college’s Ammerman Campus later this month.

The performance on September 27 at Suffolk’s Shea Theatre on the Selden Campus is produced by Radu Stanca National Theatre of Sibiu, Romania and Lucian Blaga University and will feature a performance of Antisocial.  Antisocial is the story of high school students in Romania who create a secret group on social media. The teachers find out, infiltrate and take action; with the support of some of the students.

Next spring, Suffolk County Community College Theater Arts students will collaborate with students from Lucian Blaga University utilizing the SUNY Collaborative Online International Learning Model that employs a variety a technological tools (social media, Skype) in a team taught class.  The students will travel to Romania next summer to perform with their Romanian counterparts at the Sibiu International Theatre Festival. The Sibiu International Theatre Festival has grown in importance and prestige since its founding in the early 1990’s and attracts participants from more than 70 countries, has hundreds of scheduled events and in years past has attracted more than a half million spectators during its 10-day run. Attendees include performing arts groups, filmmakers and critics.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for our students to not only participate in study abroad, but to collaborate and perform with their contemporaries starting from their laptops to such a prestigious international festival,” said Suffolk County Community College Director of Theatre Arts and Academic Chair Charles Wittreich, Jr. ’86
