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.

Tuesday, May 9 and Wednesday, May 10

10:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 2:30 PM– 4:00 PM

Gently used men’s and women’s business clothing and accessories will be accepted on the above days in the lobby of the Babylon Student Center.

This year all clothing will once again be donated to the Career Couture Boutique at the Suffolk County Department of Labor.  Career Couture is located at the Suffolk County One-Stop Employment Center and offers both men and women proper business attire for upcoming interviews and job fairs at no charge.  With the proper attire, most individuals will have a better opportunity of obtaining their next job.

Career Couture is in need of suits, blazers, blouses, pants, skirts and accessories such as shoes, purses, scarves, ties and jewelry.  Donations should be business appropriate, clean and current (no more than 3 years old).  All donations are 100% tax deductible.

Thanks to all of you, our previous drives were all a tremendous success.  I hope that we can be just as successful again this year.

Maserati

Want to spend a weekend with a sleek Italian sports car? Here’s your chance!

A weekend with a 2017 Maserati is being raffled at the Suffolk Community College Foundation’s Annual Salute to Excellence Gala, on Thursday, May 4.

The Maserati for a weekend is courtesy of Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island who has been a supporter of the Suffolk Community College Foundation’s fundraising efforts for the past four years.

“Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island is a generous and caring organization that provides financial support for the students of Suffolk County Community College,” said Sylvia A. Diaz, Ph.D., LMSW, executive director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation.  “The Maserati Weekend is perhaps the most unique raffle we’ve ever offered and our guests absolutely love the opportunity to win such a prize.  Just imagine the experience of driving around Long Island in a fine Italian sports car!  Where would you go?”

The Salute to Excellence Gala celebrating labor leader, Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO and the college will be held on May 4 at the Hilton Long Island in Huntington.

“We will celebrate and recognize a great labor leader whose advocacy for education and the middle class has helped advanced the most important engine in creating the American Dream and a better life for each generation,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

“The mission of the Foundation is to reduce the economic barriers to higher education and foster student success.  The Salute to Excellence Gala is the College’s single largest event held annually to generate financial support, community awareness and most importantly make a difference in the lives of our students,” said Executive Director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation Dr. Sylvia A Diaz. The celebration will begin at 7 pm.

Gala sponsorship, tickets and journal advertisements are available now through the Suffolk Community College Foundation website: https://sunysuffolk.thankyou4caring.org/events/salute-to-excellence-gala
