Carli Schiffner

SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy announced that Carli C. Schiffner, Ph.D., of Yakima, Washington, has been selected as the College’s new Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.

SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy announced his former Chief of Staff has been selected as the College’s new Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Carli C. Schiffner, Ph.D., of Yakima, Washington, will begin her full-time appointment in July 2011.

“Both Carli’s prior work with our campus community as well as the leadership experience she’s gained through her current position at Yakima Valley Community College will serve her well in this high-demand role,” Kennedy said. “The College has grown drastically in recent years, and we have placed our trust in Carli to continue that growth by creating more in-demand four-year programs and supporting our exponential increase in online offerings and international programs, all while encouraging the continued academic excellence of our students and faculty.”

Schiffner served as the Dean of Arts and Sciences at Yakima Valley Community College after leaving SUNY Canton in August 2007. She increased efficiencies with the division’s processes and procedures, led accreditation efforts for the campus, revised and restructured assessment within the division, and worked collaboratively with fellow administrators, staff, faculty, and respective unions. She has also worked diligently to mainstream the use of data when making decisions regarding curriculum, assessment, and hiring.

“I have been fortunate to have spent the past four years at a large urban community college where I have gained invaluable experience working on access and student success initiatives and am excited to take what I’ve learned into my new role as SUNY Canton’s Provost,” Schiffner said. “The College is going through a tremendous period of growth both in enrollment and its physical landscape. I look forward to using my enthusiasm, dedication, strong work ethic and sense of humor as I continue to champion academic excellence and integrity and move ahead with a successful student agenda.”

Schiffner came to SUNY Canton in 2003 as an assistant professor in the History department. In May 2005, she assumed the role as Chief of Staff for Kennedy but also maintained her faculty position at the College. She continued to work as a faculty leader in the areas of distance learning, institutional strategic planning, curriculum development, and accreditation.

Her research has focused on women’s groups in the Pacific Northwest during the Progressive Era. Since returning to the region in 2007, Schiffner has had work published in Columbia Magazine and the Pacific Northwest Quarterly, in addition to reviewing several history texts.

While at SUNY Canton, Schiffner created the U.S. Women’s History course and worked in the local archives to transcribe women’s diaries with students. “I would like to continue in some capacity to be involved in the local history of the North Country,” she said.

She is a member of the American Historical Association and has been a Humanities Washington Board of Trustees member since 2009. She is also an active parent volunteer at St. Joseph/Marquette Catholic School and a Daisy Troop Leader. While living in Canton, Schiffner was the secretary and archivist for the St. Lawrence County branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). She also volunteered for Citizens Against Violent Acts (CAVA), a rape crisis center in Canton.

Schiffner received her bachelor’s degree from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash., in 1996, her master’s degree in 1998 from Drew University in Madison, N.J., and her doctorate from Washington State University in 2004.

The position of SUNY Canton Provost was previously held by Linda D. Pellett, who assumed the role of Interim Provost in March 2010 and retired in December.

“I am thrilled we have Carli back in our community,” Pellett noted. “She brings with her an enormous amount of positive energy and will help continue to guide the College in the right direction despite the difficult financial situations that are ahead.”

Schiffner’s husband and daughter are looking forward to returning to the North Country. “When we previously lived in Canton, we made terrific friends that became our ‘East Coast’ family,” she said. “We are excited to reconnect with our friends and former neighbors, as well as making new relationships within the community. We are looking at this return as a homecoming and have been overwhelmed with the welcome we have already received.”

The award recognizes students enrolled in two-year programs who have excelled in their academics and other areas of campus life.

SUNY Canton Team Builds Best Steel Bridge

Thursday, May 5th, 2011
Steel Bridge Team

Michael D. Woodruff, a civil and environmental technology major from Vermontville and L. Tom Woodruff, a civil engineering technology major from Hermon, rapidly assemble their steel bridge. Michael is the student president of the SUNY Canton ASCE-AISC Student Steel Bridge Team.

SUNY Canton students built a better bridge faster than their competitors, placing first in the Upstate New York Regional Competition in Montreal, Canada.

The College’s student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers and American Institute of Steel Construction competes almost every year in the regional and national-level intercollegiate challenge.

“SUNY Canton dominated the field of competitors and won first place in all categories judged,” said Paul D. Hitchman, a faculty advisor for the team of students. “We blew the competition out of the water with the overall stiffness, or rigidity, of our entry.”

The team clocked a 8.24 minute overall construction speed, with one penalty for a dropped bolt, according to the team’s president and civil and environmental technology major Michael D. Woodruff of Vermontville. “Our closest competition was the University of Buffalo with a 9.025 (minute) construction speed,” he said.

The challenge was to build a bridge over a scenic river for a new state park road allowing access to remote areas. SUNY Canton’s team prepares for a full academic year before the competition. The students design and experiment to solve the challenge before creating a steel bridge that they can rapidly assemble in front of a panel of judges. The bridge is then loaded with weights to test its integrity. Each team is evaluated on display, lightness, stiffness, speed, economy, and efficiency.

The students pitted their bridge design and building abilities against teams including those from the University at Buffalo, Rochester Institute of Technology, Cornell University, U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Ecole de Technologie Superieure, Hudson Valley Community College, and Clarkson University.

Tom Woodruff

L. Tom Woodruff, a SUNY Canton civil engineering technology major from Hermon assembles the steel bridge during a practice session.

The team is now preparing to reclaim their 2009 national title at the 2011 National Student Steel Bridge Competition to be held on May 20 and 21 at Texas A&M University.

To support the team, please contact the SUNY Canton Foundation at 315.386.7127 or email foundation@canton.edu. Numerous faculty and staff members at the College support the team and contribute to this cause through payroll deductions and personal donations.

Every Move You Make - M. William PhelpsThe arresting officer in a Watertown and Loudonville serial killer case will be presenting at SUNY Canton.

Horton will be the keynote speaker at SUNY Canton’s Law Enforcement Day, an annual event sponsored by the College’s student chapter of the American Criminal Justice Association (ACJA). He will be speaking about the case involving Evans, who was an expert manipulator and a master of disguise, according to written accounts. Since cracking the case, Horton has become the assistant director of the New York State Office of Counterterrorism.

Law Enforcement Day will begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 3, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Kingston Theater. Presentations include a police canine demonstration, an overview of the “CSI Effect,” and bomb disposal and explosive devices. Horton’s keynote will be held at 6 p.m. on the same day and at the same location. All events held on Law Enforcement Day are free and open to the public.

“SUNY Canton students and members of the community can learn about a variety of subjects ranging from human trafficking to serial murderers,” said Susan E. Buckley, department chair of the criminal justice, law enforcement leadership and criminal investigation programs. “We will be expanding upon the most interesting and newest topics law enforcement officers face during their careers.”
