Businesses that hire SUNY Canton students from the Office Technology program know they are getting career-minded, work-ready professionals. Professor of Office Technology Rosanna M. Moser makes sure of it.
Moser has received the 2007 Distinguished Faculty Award and will be among the faculty, staff, and scholars highlighted at the college’s 99th Commencement Ceremony held 10:30 a.m. Saturday, May 19, in Alumni Gymnasium at Dana Athletic Center. She is known for her own professional, courteous demeanor and her diligent efforts to make sure students are equally prepared with immediately marketable skills.
“Professor Rosanna Moser is a terrific example of why SUNY Canton is thriving and why our students are so successful,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “She imparts wisdom directly applicable to each student’s future careers coupled with the hands-on approach of her programs.”
Professor Moser has a quiet demeanor and an “unsung” status belying the fact that she has positively impacted a countless number of students. She has helped secure internships for students within their chosen field, most of which lead to 100 percent placement.
Associate Professor Emeritus Robert W. Stilson describes her as, “… dedicated, professional, responsible, respectful, articulate, and kind.”
Professor Moser is the department chairperson of Business faculty within the School of Business and Public Service. She also organized Professional Development Week, allowing students from all curricula can hone their interview skills, learn to dress for success, and engage in extra-curricular learning. She dramatically and positively influences the lives of her students and colleagues on a daily basis.
She earned her baccalaureate degree in Personnel Administration from Empire State College in 1982 and her Master of Science degree in Vocational and Technical Education in 1985 at SUNY Oswego. She has subsequently completed 30 credit hours of additional post graduate coursework.
