SUNY Canton Launches Sexual Assault Awareness Campaign with Selfie Challenge

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

SUNY Canton is joining the growing movement to combat sexual assault on college campuses by challenging all students to a selfie competition.

Students are encouraged to take photos of themselves promoting the national “It’s On Us” campaign and post them on Instagram and other social media sites.

It's on us

Hundreds of students hold “It’s on Us” signs at a SUNY Canton talent show.

“U.S. President Barack Obama launched the It’s On Us campaign as a rally cry for everyone to realize that the solution to sexual assault and violence begins with all of us,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “We are joining in the It’s On Us campaign by using social media to promote the theme. It’s a very good thing when SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, U.S. Senator Kristen Gillibrand, our president and our students all are speaking with one voice about this important issue.”

Student Government Association President Melissa Cummins officially launched the campaign at “Canton’s Got Talent” during Homecoming weekend. She orchestrated a large group photograph of students holding “It’s On Us” signs.

Selfie Competition Details

 Students should post photos promoting the It’s On Us campaign using their own Instagram accounts. The college will monitor responses by searching for the hashtags #sunycanton and #itsonus. Students are also invited to tag the college’s Instagram account, @sunycantongram, when posting their photos. The first-place selfie submission will receive a night out on the town, including transportation and dinner for two at the 1844 House and a movie at the American Theater. Winners will be announced publicly during one of two Oct. 20 sexual assault awareness events listed below.

Entrants are encouraged to take unique selfie-style photos around SUNY Canton and the community holding a sign recognizing the It’s On Us motto or the key points of the campaign. A sample sign is available here. Photo submissions may be retweeted, posted or otherwise used to support the college’s efforts.

Upcoming Learning Opportunities

SUNY Canton is sponsoring numerous outreach programs for students during the month of October focusing on sexual assault awareness, prevention and student safety, including:

  • A Break the Chain program focusing on dating, domestic violence and sexual violence beginning at 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 20, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Woodcock Conference Suites. The program will conclude with a candlelight vigil. Canton’s Renewal House and the college’s Counseling Center and several student clubs are involved with planning the event.
  • The college is also sponsoring the improvisational show “Sex Signals” that explores how social pressures, gender stereotypes and false preconceptions all contribute to the tensions found in dating. Sex Signals will also be held at 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 20, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Kingston Theater. The winner of the selfie challenge will be announced at the show.

There will also be several outreach programs in the residence halls and numerous informational tables to raise awareness of sexual assault on campus during the month of October.

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

SUNY Canton will be staging a fire in a model dorm room to raise awareness of fire safety.

The controlled burn is part of a daylong series of fire prevention training programs sponsored by the college’s Environmental Health and Safety office. SUNY Canton’s Fire Safety Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16, on the Roselle Academic Plaza on SUNY Canton’s campus. The dorm room demonstration is scheduled for noon.

“The dorm room we will burn was built specifically for this demonstration by students in the Wood Structures class,” said Torey J. Russell, environmental health and safety coordinator. “It will be a learning exercise to demonstrate how quickly a fire can spread.”

Members of the Canton Volunteer Fire Department will be on hand to put out the dorm fire.

There will also be a fire extinguisher training simulator, and Christopher Taylor of the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control Office will be distributing information.

Fire Safety Day is designed to raise awareness and educate SUNY Canton students, faculty and staff members, but is also free and open to the public.

SUNY Canton Endorses Governor Cuomo’s Sexual Assault Prevention Policy

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced yesterday that the SUNY Board of trustees approved a statewide policy to combat sexual assault, which will establish a uniform set of practices throughout its 64 campuses, including SUNY Canton.

New YorkThe resolution includes implementing a uniform, system-wide definition of consent that is required between participants before engaging in sexual activity; an immunity policy to protect students coming forward to report sexual assault; a statewide training program for campus police and administrators regarding how to address sexual assault incidents; a public campaign to increase awareness among students and parents; and a uniform Sexual Assault Victims’ Bill of Rights that will, in clear and specific language, inform a student of his or her rights following an attack including the option of approaching State Police.

“SUNY Board Chairman H. Carl McCall said it best when he noted that keeping our students safe is our number one priority,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “Having uniform policies and a standard definition of consent will help us educate our students about making the safe, and ultimately right, decisions. Over the next few weeks, we will be promoting a campus-wide campaign involving students, faculty, staff, and alumni aimed at increasing sexual assault awareness, education and prevention.”

SUNY Canton already meets many of the criteria outlined by Gov. Cuomo and SUNY. The college plans to adopt the new measures outlined in the new policy.

SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher said, “SUNY is committed to providing the best tools, resources, and services for students to protect them from sexual assault and support them in the event that an incident does occur. Governor Cuomo has helped us develop a comprehensive plan for increased awareness and police training that will complement our existing efforts and enhance our national leadership role in combating sexual assault and violence. We are proud to implement this new policy in partnership with the governor and the presidents at each of our 64 college and university campuses across New York State.”

Campus sexual assault prevention measures on a national level have also gained momentum. Szafran represented SUNY in August during an announcement of support for the Campus Accountability and Safety Act, a bill co-sponsored by New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, which strengthens accountability for institutions nationwide in reporting sexual violence on campus, among other measures.

Award-Winning Documentary Filmmaker to Speak at SUNY Canton

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Bess O'BrienBess O’Brien, director of the internationally acclaimed documentary “The Hungry Heart,” will discuss drug addiction and recovery at SUNY Canton.

O’Brien will speak at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Kingston Theater. The event is free and open to the public.

O’Brien released “The Hungry Heart” last year, providing an in-depth look at the world of prescription drug addiction through the eyes of Vermont pediatrician Dr. Fred Holmes, who prescribes suboxone to his patients struggling with prescription drug addiction. Much like methadone, suboxone helps many addicts in their recovery process – for some taking suboxone is a crucial stepping stone to long term recovery, for others it is a crutch. Throughout the film, the viewer sees Dr. Holmes struggling with these challenges and trying to make sense and keep the faith in the midst of many contradictions.

The Hungry HeartThe documentary has received international praise for starting a conversation about opiate abuse and has been highlighted on CBS Evening News, Al Jazeera, the New York Times and ABC.

O’Brien is the winner of the 2014 Walter Cerf Award for Excellence in the Arts; the 2012 Labor of Love Award from Vermont Works for Women; the 2011 Voices For Vermont’s Children Youth Advocacy Award in recognition of O’Brien’s creative and artistic advocacy on behalf of Vermont children; the 2010 National Education Association Human and Civil Rights Award for Shout it Out for empowering youth voice; and other awards.

SUNY Canton Assistant Professor Wins 31 Consecutive Criminal Prosecution Appeals

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

A SUNY Canton Legal Studies assistant professor has marked a milestone in his law career.

Alexander Lesyk, J.D., has won 31 prosecution appeals consecutively since September 2013. The appeals supported convictions in cases involving a wide range of criminal charges.

Alexander Lesyk“Our students benefit from receiving their education from a practicing attorney with Assistant Professor Lesyk’s breadth of experience,” said Jondavid S. DeLong, dean of the school of liberal arts. “We pride ourselves on our faculty members’ ability to use real-world knowledge in the classroom.”

Lesyk, a former chief public defender for Franklin County, and a former chief assistant district attorney for St. Lawrence County, served as assistant district attorney for appeals during the last quarter of former District Attorney Nicole Duvé’s tenure. He was then named a special prosecutor in St. Lawrence County in January, and is responsible for appeals in criminal cases in which the current District Attorney’s office has a conflict. The appeals won represent every case that Lesyk has been assigned to date.

He is currently the curriculum coordinator for SUNY Canton’s Legal Studies bachelor’s degree program. He also instructs in the college’s Criminal Justice and Funeral Services Administration programs. He was recently also named the county coordinator for the St. Lawrence County Mock Trial Program, sponsored by the New York State Bar Association. The mock trials pit local high school teams coached by area attorneys against each other in simulated civil or criminal cases.

Lesyk graduated from Fordham University Law School in 1982 and has won numerous awards in criminal law, admiralty, and indigent defense.

Career-Driven Bachelor Degree Programs Gain Initial Accreditation at SUNY Canton

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

SUNY Canton’s most recent bachelor’s degree programs received initial accreditation by ABET, the premiere engineering and engineering technology accrediting body.

Civil and Environmental Technology, Electrical Technology and Mechanical Technology all underwent a full site review by ABET accreditors last fall. The accreditation is retroactive to Oct. 1, 2012.

civil environmental

Pictured are (l to r) Garrett R. Richards of Potsdam, Civil and Environmental Technology program director Adrienne C. Rygel and Codi D. McKee of Barker collecting water samples from the Grasse River on the SUNY Canton campus.

“Accreditation really helps establish the quality and value of these programs,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “It is further evidence that our programs have met the standards necessary to produce well-qualified graduates who are prepared to enter their chosen careers.”

All three programs began in 2010 and boast a 100 percent placement rate for graduates. Most new hires within these fields are earning salaries of more than $50,000 annually.

“The four-year educational tracks were developed to build upon SUNY Canton’s strong, ABET accredited, associate degree programs,” said Michael J. Newtown, interim dean of the Canino School of Engineering Technology. “Students have advanced career mobility through our four-year programs.”

Civil and Environmental Technology

The four-year program builds upon the existing two-year Civil Engineering Technology program with more advanced structural design courses, practical industry skills and technology, and add an entirely new environmental component to the program according to Program Director and Associate Professor Adrienne C. Rygel, Ph.D. “Students build upon their classes in the natural sciences to tackle real-life problems,” she said. “They study water and soil pollution and determine responses to remediate contamination.”

Some students are studying the environmental impact of mining in Pyrates. They take field samples to test the water quality and then draft an environmental site impact statement. Other students are surveying a site and creating a plan for residential development in the area, including the design for the homes.

The career outlook in the area of civil engineering technology is expected to remain constant through 2011, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The career outlook for environmental technology and related careers is projected to grow approximately 18 percent, or faster than the average for all occupations, according to the BLS.

Electrical Technology

One of the benefits of ABET accreditation in the Electrical Engineering Technology program is students will be able to take the Fundamentals of Engineers examination toward their professional engineer license immediately after graduation, according to Program Director and Professor Stephen E. Frempong, Ph.D. “The program provides the opportunity for students to minor in mathematics, which helps when applying to graduate school or preparing to become a design engineer,” he said.

Students in the program are currently working on a radio frequency identification system that could be applied to a classroom setting as an attendance system, and a power generation method where waste heat is converted into usable electricity.

Electrical and electronics engineering technologists work closely with electrical engineers. They work primarily in manufacturing settings, research and development laboratories, and the utilities industry, according the BLS. The median annual wage for these positions is almost $58,000.

Mechanical Technology

Assistant Professor and Department Chairperson Director Daniel J. Miller noted that companies including Boeing, Corning Inc., Schneider Packaging and others have hired graduates from the four-year Mechanical Technology program. “Several students are continuing their education in doctorate programs studying biomedical engineering research fields,” he said. “Our program is unique in that students have several pathways to direct their career.”

mechanical

Notably, students can study mechanical design, manufacturing robotics and building environmental controls. The program recently incorporated three-dimensional printers. Students have built several of these devices and have used the technology to print their own projects. Currently, students in the Engineering Club are designing a Baja off-road vehicle.

Mechanical engineering technologists assist with manufacturing processes or with development phases in research and development labs. Careers in the field are expected to grow through 2022, according to the BLS. There will be opportunities for students who can master new software and technology. The median annual wage for graduates is greater than $51,000.

About Accreditation

The goal of accreditation is to ensure that the education provided by SUNY Canton meets high levels of quality. Members of the faculty, staff, and administration use the accreditation as a means to measure the effectiveness of programs and evaluate the quality of each major. The college first received ABET accreditation in 1950. Many of the two-year programs within the SUNY Canton Canino School of Engineering Technology were reaccredited by ABET in 2009.

G.I. Jobs magazine announced this week that SUNY Canton has once again been named to their annual list of the most military-friendly schools in the nation.

The 2015 list on militaryfriendly.com honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students.

SUNY Canton was chosen for its support services that benefit current and former military members and their families, such as a dedicated study lounge and flexible online learning options. It is the fourth time the college has been recognized by the publication.

Jobs magazine, and we pledge to continue providing an accessible, affordable, high-quality education to present and former military service men and women and their dependents.”

This year more than 75 veterans, National Guard members, reservists and veteran dependents are enrolled at SUNY Canton. The college’s Military and Veteran Student Service Coordinator Patrick S. Massaro serves as an adviser to military students and their families, helping them navigate the programs and services that can assist them in reaching their educational goals.

Thomas M. Sanford, an Accounting major from Poughkeepsie and current Marine Corps reservist, said SUNY Canton’s military-friendly culture helped eased his transition from active duty to higher education after serving for five years in the Marines.

“Patrick made it incredibly easy for me to make the move from my military career to beginning my degree program,” Sanford said. “And SUNY Canton’s dedicated study lounge and Student Veterans Association gives military students the opportunity connect with each other and work together.”
