STEM education is the study of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These four general areas of study are extremely important in keeping up with advancement. Across New York State, STEM careers are growing 2.5 times faster than the non-STEM average growth. SUNY has been working to increase STEM education, and furthermore keeping New York and the United States as the technological and economical leader of the global marketplace of the 21st Century.
Last month, SUNY Oswego opened it’s doors to the Shineman Center. The building was named after Richard S. Shineman, who is said to be the catalyst for science research at the college. The center was opened for students in August, marking the culmination of a three year construction project.
Science, Engineering, and Innovation are the three main components to this center and its efforts to promote STEM education for its students. Last week, the Shineman Center opened to the public, and SUNY Oswego’s $118 million Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation drew “oohs and aahs” from hundreds of community visitors. And in concert with SUNY’s efforts to build a better tomorrow, the Shineman Center also went green!
A year ago next month, New York and the Northeastern U.S. was hit by the biggest storm in recent memory — Hurricane Sandy. As the effects of the storm are still seen today — losses that total $68 billion and countless people displaced — SUNY is continuing its work to ensure a safer and more predictable landfall should another Sandy-sized storm hit the region.
When Hurricane Sandy brought the Eastern seaboard to a halt last year, SUNY sprung into action. From SUNY Maritime College housing hundreds of relief workers and ultimately serving more than 37,000 meals to SUNY Downstate Medical Center deploying 100 medical personnel across New York City to hundreds of students ascending on the metropolitan area from across the state, the humanity and kindness of the people of SUNY positively impacted many people in a time of crisis. However, SUNY’s work does not stop when the last board is removed from a window or the final stake is in the ground of a rebuilt home. Research is being conducted by SUNY campuses across the state to study the source of the damage — hurricanes and massive weather formations — so that physical and emotional damage may be diminished in the future.
Hi everyone! My name is Shaniese Alston and I am the newest social media intern for the Office of New Media at SUNY System Administration. I am excited to become a new member of the team and lend my voice to the stories you will all be reading. I am a senior at University at Albany and I will be graduating in May 2014 with a degree in communications and a minor in business. I am originally from Freeport, Long Island.
Besides my love for social media, I am a certified fashion and beauty junkie. This past summer, I interned at L’Oreal USA headquarters in New York City for Giorgio Armani Cosmetics and it was an amazing experience (plus I got to take some free makeup). During my free time, I like to blog. I write for obaz.com and I have two blogs named Naturalista Beauty and Comfort Fashionista (check them out). As you all guessed, I hope to work in the fashion, beauty or entertainment fields as a public relations or marketing executive.
