SUNY Canton Hosts Citizen Emergency Preparedness Training on Saturday

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

NYS PrepareThe New York State governor’s office is providing a two-hour training session designed to equip area residents with the tools and resources to prepare for disasters.

A team of New York National Guard Soldiers will be teaching civilians to be ready for almost any disaster as part of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Citizen Preparedness Program.

A Citizen Preparedness Corps training will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 5, at SUNY Canton’s Roos House Athletic Center. The event is free and open to the public. Those planning to attend should preregister at http://www.nyprepare.gov/aware-prepare/nysprepare/registration.

“We have robust academic programs in the fields of Homeland Security, and Emergency Management in addition to our renowned Criminal Justice curricula,” said SUNY Canton Acting President Joseph C. Hoffman. “This training augments what many of our students are learning in their courses and is designed to prepare the public for natural or man-made disasters.”

State Senator Patty A. Ritchie, Assemblywoman Addie J. Russell, St. Lawrence County Board of Legislators Chair Jonathan Putney, and the St. Lawrence County Emergency Services Office are cosponsoring the training.

Governor Cuomo assists with clean-up after natural disaster.

The two-hour program comes with a free disaster preparedness kit, including a first-aid kit, pocket radio with batteries, food bars, emergency blanket and other key items to help citizens in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. Participants will be advised on how to properly prepare for any disaster, including developing a family emergency plan and stocking up on emergency supplies.

SUNY Canton is in the running to become the State’s College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cyber Security through a partnership with Clarkson University, Potsdam. The Colleges would become the first in the nation devoted to homeland security and would establish integrated education, training and research in a comprehensive public-private partnership.

 

About the Citizen Preparedness Corps:

The Citizen Preparedness Corps training began in February and has been held about a dozen times in various locations across the state. Trainings are led by the New York National Guard, working with experts from the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services’ Office of Emergency Management and Office of Fire Prevention and Control. Training sessions will be coordinated with local county emergency management personnel.

Instead of traditional skates, players use a specially made sled, or sledge, to sit on and glide across the ice. They propel themselves using two small hockey sticks. The extra equipment allows veterans who are missing limbs, or are otherwise disabled, to compete.

The tournament is sponsored by the Society for American Military Engineers and the Canton Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1231.

Donations will be accepted at the door and there will also be a 50/50 raffle and chuck-a-puck. Memorabilia from the National Hockey League will be raffled off and sold during a silent auction.

Acclaimed Sports Columnist, Author to Kick off SUNY Canton Spring Living Writers Series

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

SUNY Canton will continue its popular Living Writers Series next month with New York Times sports columnist and bestselling author William C. Rhoden.

Rhoden will be discussing his work at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, in the Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center nicknamed Roos House. The event is free and open to the public.

William Rhoden

William Rhoden, author of “Forty Million Dollar Slaves,” will answer questions about his writing at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, at Roos House.

“Focusing on the juggernaut of professional sports, Rhoden forces us to examine and question some of the fundamental ideas our culture has to offer about race, power, and history,” said Assistant Professor of English Phil LaMarche, who created the series to allow students enrolled in his Living Writers Course to meet and hear from the authors whose books they are required to read in class.

Rhoden is perhaps best known for his book “Forty Million Dollar Slaves: The Rise, Fall, and Redemption of the Black Athlete,” which deals with the challenging issue of the status of the black athlete in contemporary America. Using the pervasive metaphor of the plantation, Rhoden describes a modern sports industry defined by white ownership and black labor.

During a journalism career that has spanned more than three decades, Rhoden has tackled complex issues in the sports world. He has written “The Sports of the Times” column since 1990, and his work has been included in a number of anthologies including “The Best American Sports Writing 2007.” Rhoden is also a frequent guest on ESPN’s long-running Sunday morning show, “The Sports Reporters.”

Rhoden’s accolades include a Peabody Award for his writing on the HBO documentary “Journey of the African American Athlete.” Most recently, he wrote the HBO documentary “Breaking the Huddle,” about the integration of College Football, which won a 2009 Emmy for outstanding Documentary Film. He is also author of the critically acclaimed book, “Third and A Mile: The Trials and Triumphs of The Black Quarterback.”

Rhoden will answer questions and be available for book signings after the event. Copies of “Forty Million Dollar Slaves” will be available for purchase.

Upcoming presenters will include Iain Haley Pollock, author of “Spit Back a Boy,” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, and Siobhan Fallon, author of “You Know When the Men Are Gone,” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 24. Both events will be held in the College’s Kingston Theater and are free and open to the public.

SUNY Canton Earns Top Honors in Student Opinion Survey

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

SUNY Canton was recently rated best in several categories when compared with its peer colleges, according to SUNY’s 2012 Student Opinion Survey.

Every three years, all SUNY colleges and universities administer the survey to assess the quality of student life on each campus and use the results as a barometer to grow and adapt.

Cierra Wells

Cierra Wells uses a loaned iPad at SUNY Canton’s Southworth Library, which was rated highly in a student survey for its resources and services.

“The results of the survey reflect the tremendous job our faculty and staff do to help students reach their educational goals,” said SUNY Canton Interim President Carli C. Schiffner. “It is to their credit that we were rated first in these categories.”

When compared against other SUNY technology sector colleges, SUNY Canton’s Southworth Library Learning Commons scored highest for providing resources and services. The library has recently undergone major student-centered renovations, including expanding its laptop loan program, creating an iPad loan program, and adding new furniture.

“Much of the content students are expected to read for their education is available digitally,” said Vice President for Student Affairs Molly A. Mott. “What has traditionally been a storehouse for books has become a hub of technological innovation.”

The College’s computer network was also top among its peer colleges, according to the survey. Most of the College’s Information Services Operations are housed in the Southworth Library Learning Commons.

The College was also first among tech sector colleges in the areas of:

  • General academic advising
  • Financial aid services
  • Availability of courses within a given major

Additionally, the College’s new athletic facilities received high praise from students. SUNY Canton’s new Roos House athletic center was listed first among similar SUNY colleges. Other areas that ranked high in the survey were student health services and personal counseling.

The information is gathered from a sampling of undergraduate students and gauges their satisfaction with services, facilities, environment and more. SUNY Canton’s rankings were calculated when compared against seven other colleges of technology within the SUNY System.

SUNY Canton Wins ASCE Steel Bridge Competition

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

The SUNY Canton student steel bridge team outscored its regional competitors by building the most efficient and economical bridge at the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Upstate New York Student Conference Championships. The competition is co-sponsored by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).

Bridge Team in Action

SUNY Canton student steel bridge team vice president and bridge designer William W. Corbine of Potsdam (far right) tightens the final bolts on the College's bridge during the assembly stage of the competition.

The College hosted the bridge portion of the competition on Friday at the brand new Roos House Athletic Center. It was the 13th time in 17 years that SUNY Canton students have captured the regional title.

“Congratulations to our student steel bridge team for their regional victory and good luck to them in the nationals,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “I’m very proud of the time and energy they’ve poured into designing and making their bridge. I’m also extremely proud of all the work the team did to make hosting the competition such a great success. I’m certain that these experiences and successes will serve them well as they prepare for successful careers.”



The competition challenges student teams to construct a one-tenth-scale model bridge designed to meet certain criteria, including construction speed, lightness, display, stiffness, economy, and efficiency.

“The students made all of the right choices from the beginning to make this bridge the winning entry,” said Robert R. Blickwedehl, a College instructor and SUNY Canton ASCE student chapter advisor. “I look forward to seeing them compete against top colleges and universities in the nation once again this year.”

The team will now prepare to head to the ASCE/AISC national competition scheduled for May 25 at Clemson University in South Carolina.

The judges use a formula to project how much implementation of each entry would cost, and the total cost determines the winning entry. The SUNY Canton bridge entry would cost an estimated $4.3 million and took just under eight minutes to construct. It was approximately $1.8 million cheaper and was assembled eight minutes faster than the nearest rival entry from second-place winner École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) from Montreal, Quebec.

Bridge Team

In order of finish, after the SUNY Canton and ETS entries were:

  • Cornell University
  • Clarkson University
  • SUNY at Buffalo
  • Hudson Valley Community College
  • The United States Military Academy at West Point
  • Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
  • Rochester Institute of Technology

“This was the best regional competition that we’ve been to as far as I can remember,” said Paul D. Hitchman, a faculty advisor for the student steel bridge team. “I can’t thank the faculty, staff, students and administration enough for helping us make the event a tremendous success.”
