Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

SUNY Potsdam and SUNY Canton will host colleagues from State University of New York campuses across Northern New York tomorrow, for “Harnessing Systemness: Regional Discussions on Efficiency and Excellence.” This event is an opportunity for regional campuses to learn from neighboring institutions and foster greater collaboration.

Shared Services

SUNY Vice Chancellor for Financial Services Brian Hutzley will attend the conference and speak about the nationally recognized success of shared services between SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam.

“By sharing services with other campuses in the region, every SUNY college and university in New York has put itself in a better position to do more for its students,” said Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “From sharing online tutoring programs and clinical training facilities to collaborating on purchases and course offerings, SUNY campuses have embraced this initiative with commendable action.”

Tomorrow’s regional discussion will include campus-specific examples, as well as breakout sessions covering strategic areas, so peers from an array of institutions can discuss ideas to successfully share services.

The conference will be offered at SUNY Potsdam, and will be held in the Barrington Student Union Multi-Purpose Room from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and will move to Kellas Hall from 1 to 4 p.m.

The schedule is as follows:

  • 9 to 10 a.m.: “From Roots to Results: The Canton-Potsdam Story,” keynote presented by shared Vice President for Finance and Administration Natalie Higley.

  • 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.: Breakout sessions
  • 2:45 to 3:15 p.m.: Discussion on breakout session outcomes
  • 3:30 to 4 p.m.: Closing remarks

SUNY’s shared services initiative is an opportunity to provide greater efficiencies and improved services to our students. Through a series of strategic priorities and projects SUNY’s will enhance the core academic and student services missions of our campuses by redirecting resources to them from administrative and non-instructional functions, thereby allowing campuses to devote resources toward achieving the goals of student access, completion and success.

“Harnessing Systemness: Regional Discussions of Efficiency and Excellence” are events are designed to bring together campuses from the same geographic regions to in order to provide them better understanding of the shared services initiative, celebrate progress, share best practices, discussion challenges, and foster a collaborative culture across SUNY. The goal is to provide campuses with basic information about the initiative, and through the use of facilitated breakout discussions, provide participating campuses with an opportunity to learn from each other.

The immediate measurable goal of SUNY’s shared services initiative is the savings and reinvestment of $100 million over three years. To date, SUNY has identified more than $20 million in redirected savings, including new faculty hires, financial aid programs, scholarships, tutoring and academic advisement.

International Summer Program at SUNY Canton Teaches Entrepreneurism and Business Leadership

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Students from Kazan and Moscow, Russia, are learning how to become entrepreneurs at SUNY Canton’s International Summer program.

“We help students augment their education to become entrepreneurs,” said Marela Fiacco, director of international programs. “Many of these students will graduate and become business leaders or create their own start-ups.”

This is the second year that the College has invited students from Kazan Federal University and Moscow State University to attend the business-focused seminar.

International Classroom

SUNY Canton Associate Professor Charles R. Fenner (pictured far right) presents a special class for students in the College’s International Summer program.

The International Summer Program is co-hosted by the SUNY Canton Small Business Development Center at SUNY Canton, an agency that helps provide technical assistance to small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs.

A representative from the SBDC works with students to create marketing plans, learn budget financing and overall business management. “By the end of the three-week session, students will present a complete business plan,” Fiacco said.

As part of their learning experience, the students visit area businesses such as the St. Lawrence Brewing Company and St. Lawrence Valley Roasters, among others.

Several of the students are enrolled in dual-degree programs at the College and take courses online throughout the year with SUNY Canton faculty and their visit gives them the ability to meet their professors face-to-face. Management program faculty members also presented coursework during the session.

SUNY Canton’s Southworth Learning Commons Librarians Integrate Innovative Technology

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Library faculty are using QR codes, augmented reality, video and podcasts to expand resources and engagement.

Posters can speak to SUNY Canton Southworth Library Learning Commons users through a mobile device.

Librarians have hung up placards around the library that automatically link to videos recommending reading suggestions. Visitors hold their mobile phone or other device in front of the displays to automatically link to the presentations.

Librarians with iPad

SUNY Canton Acting President Joseph C. Hoffman recently recognized Southworth Library Learning Commons faculty for integrating mobile technology. Pictured are Assistant Librarian Michael Magilligan, Hoffman and Assistant Librarian Jennifer Whittaker.

Additionally, the librarians have integrated Quick Response (QR) codes in sections of the library to help patrons access online periodicals, research databases or an e-book service.

“Our exceptional librarians have been instrumental in enhancing the academic environment on this Campus,” said SUNY Canton Acting President Joseph C. Hoffman. “Innovative projects such as this one are at the cutting edge of scholarly development incorporating the use of the latest technologies.”

The librarians are using iPads for mobile access, allowing them to bring the library’s resources into the classroom and locations around campus. They can access various databases to aid in research and demonstrate what the library has to offer.

“Our library faculty are helping more students from more locations,” said Molly A. Mott, dean of academic support services and instructional technologies, who oversees the library.

Within the past few years, the College has supplemented their laptop loan program with an iPad loan program. Students can check out an iPad the same way they would a book to use within the building. “We’ve been able to expand on our iPad loan program in ways I never thought possible,” said Michelle Currier, director of library services. “Fasten your seat belts, there is more to come.”

Assistant Librarian Michael Magilligan has used available technology and software such as Apple’s Garage Band, iMovie and the online resource SoundCloud to help students present their own scholarly work. He used this software to record student poetry during National Poetry Month.

Magilligan and Assistant Librarian Jennifer Whittaker recently presented their projects at the SUNY Librarians Association annual conference in June. Together, they taught attendants how to accomplish the mobile innovations. By the end of their presentation, the librarians at the conference  session could make their own videos and podcasts using available, and in most cases, free software and web services. Their presentation was well received and other Libraries may look to SUNY Canton as a model for innovation.

“Our hope is that other SUNY Colleges and Universities can adopt similar strategies and enjoy similar successes,” Magilligan noted.

In a recent Student Opinion Survey, SUNY Canton’s Southworth Library Learning Commons scored highest for providing resources and services when compared against other SUNY technology sector colleges. The success was attributed to many of the student-centered innovations adopted within the past few years.

Included in the division is the Southworth Library Learning Commons, which houses Information Services and the majority of the College’s tutoring services. The library was lauded for offering extensive and innovative services that support and enhance educational offerings and academic programming.

The team of reviewers commended the development of credit and non-credit programs directly tied to community needs. The Middle States reviewers also praised the College’s signature Summer and Winterterm sessions, which have experienced dramatic growth in recent years by switching to a primarily online format.

The College received commendation for the creative financing that allowed the Alumni Association and the SUNY Canton College Foundation to construct the Grasse River Suites Residence Hall.
