SUNY Canton Announces New and More Efficient Administrative Structure

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

SUNY Canton Interim President Carli C. Schiffner today announced several departments and offices were realigned within the College’s organizational structure to better support priorities including student retention, strategic enrollment management and efficient shared services.

Some of the major changes under the new organizational structure include Athletics moving back to Student Affairs, Information Services and University Police shifting to College Administration, and Online Learning and Admissions moving under Academics.

“Canton has been a leader in SUNY’s system-wide shared service initiatives, and today’s realignment by President Schiffner mirrors our broader efforts to streamline administrative overhead so our resources can support student services and institutional priorities,” said Brian Hutzley, vice chancellor for financial services and chief financial officer for SUNY.

“These changes will result in a more effective organizational structure that will allow SUNY Canton to better address its issues and priorities moving forward,” President Schiffner said. “The restructuring of these areas will allow us to focus on student success and better align us with the model of both our SUNY counterparts and colleges and universities around the nation. This is part of the evolution of Canton as we look to continue our remarkable progress.”

Schiffner mentioned the College’s increased focus on academics and student completion as well as future opportunities to continue saving money through shared services. Last month SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam announced more than $1 million in shared services savings, and Vice President for Administration Natalie Higley expects those efforts to continue to benefit both schools.

“SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam have worked hard together to consolidate administrative services, become more efficient, and direct a larger percentage of funds toward the education of our students,” said Higley, who works for both colleges and is an example of the new shared services model. “We’ve already seen progress in areas such as payroll services and information services, and we look forward to continuing to standardize our processes and procedures for future savings.”

SUNY Canton Breaks All-Time Applications Record

Monday, June 11th, 2012

The College is anticipating another year of record enrollment. New students should process their deposits immediately to secure their seats in the College’s top programs.

SUNY Canton has broken its all-time record for applications for the third straight year and has received more than 6,000 applications for the first time in school history. As a result, Admissions Director Nicole Campbell is anticipating a fifth straight year of record-breaking enrollment.

SUNY Canton Applications by Year

“It’s a terrific accomplishment to sustain and build on the incredible momentum we’ve set over the past several years,” Campbell said. “We won’t have complete enrollment numbers until the semester begins, but it looks like we may top 4,000 students for the first time in school history. And while a lot of credit should go to our experienced admissions counselors, it truly is a college-wide effort and a reflection of our remarkable collective success.”

Total applicants and deposits have both increased since last year when the College shattered previous records in nearly every admissions category.

“There are a variety of reasons why our numbers continue to increase each year,” said Vice President for Advancement David M. Gerlach. “We continue to add more in-demand, career-oriented bachelor’s degrees, we have a new athletic facility, a new residence hall, and a student-first approach to everything we do. Those reasons coupled with our affordability make us more attractive to incoming students than we have ever been.”

To date, SUNY Canton has received more than 6,300 applications for the upcoming academic year, an increase of more than 20 percent from the same time last year and up almost 150 percent from just six years ago.

New students planning to begin during the Fall 2012 semester should process their deposits immediately to secure their seats in the College’s top programs.

SUNY Canton Unveils New Four-Year Applied Psychology Degree

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

The new program will begin for the Fall 2012 semester and students can apply for admission immediately.

SUNY Canton’s newest Bachelor of Science degree will prepare students for direct employment in human services fields and will address the shortage of well-trained professional applicants for area organizations.

The College recently received approval from the State University of New York and the State Education Department to begin offering a new applied psychology program for the Fall 2012 semester.

“Psychology is one of the most popular majors for entering freshmen,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “We’ve created our own version of the popular program by designing a degree that allows students to graduate and immediately start their chosen careers. Adapting career-driven educational strategies are really what we do best at SUNY Canton.”

The addition of this program will have an impact locally, concurrent with SUNY’s system wide plans to target growth most needed most in regional economies and by providing a strong workforce.

“I thank both SUNY Administration and Senator Patty Ritchie for backing this program,” Kennedy added. “Their wisdom will help us supply a new contingent of professionals to address the shortage of qualified employees at our area agencies.”

According to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics employment is projected to grow faster than the average for all occupations, and about 54 percent of jobs are in healthcare and social assistance industries.

The College has received letters of support expressing interest in hiring graduates from the program from area agencies including St. Lawrence NYSARC; United Helpers, Inc.; Cerebral Palsy of Northern New York; and area autism advocacy groups.

“We need employees with a solid educational background in applied behavioral analysis,” said Daphne A. Pickert, the CEO and executive director of St. Lawrence NYSARC. “We are very grateful SUNY Canton will be able to provide graduates with those qualities.”

Pickert was involved in developing the program with both Kennedy and SUNY Canton faculty members to ensure students would graduate with the most employable skills.

“Applied psychology will be the first degree with a technological application of the social sciences at SUNY Canton,” said Carli C. Schiffner, SUNY Canton provost and vice president for academic affairs. “It will readily augment our current courses in law enforcement leadership, business, criminal investigation, nursing, and health services management, among other programs.”

Students entering the program should have an interest in learning about how to work with people, including in special needs settings, according to Professor Emeritus John T. Nixon, Ph.D., the lead faculty member in the applied psychology program.

“We will emphasize the ability to understand the needs of clients and consumers in a variety of human services fields,” Nixon said. “In these settings, employees need counseling skills and need to recognize intervention and adaptive strategies.”

Courses in the program include developmental psychology, abnormal psychology, intervention strategies in human services, and professional ethics courses. “We are going to get students out into the field as quickly as possible through internships and in-class placements,” Nixon said.

Internships with area social service agencies will be especially beneficial for students looking to gain employment locally. The College has seen numerous students hired through their credit-bearing internships with partnering agencies and companies in other four-year degree programs.

The program consists primarily of face-to-face courses, but students can fulfill some of their general education requirements through SUNY Canton OnLine.

Applied psychology joins the College’s newest four-year programs including veterinary technology, sports management, health and fitness promotion, and several new offerings in the engineering technology curricula. The program is the sixth bachelor’s degree available through the College’s School of Business and Liberal Arts and the second Bachelor of Science degree at SUNY Canton.

More information about the new major is available at: http://www.canton.edu/business/psyc/

To apply for the program, contact SUNY Canton Admissions by phone, 315-386-7123 (800-388-7123), or email admissions@canton.edu.
