Message from the President

Dear students,

First, I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and I wish you continued good health and safety. I am writing to thank and congratulate you on completing your spring 2020 semester under such unusual circumstances. We are grateful for your patience as we transitioned so quickly to alternative formats. 

Summer classes are in session and it is not too late to consider a course in summer II (starting July 6). Momentum is important and we will continue to provide the highest quality educational experience while maintaining our commitment to the health and safety of all. 

If you haven’t already registered, our fall schedule is available and registration is ongoing. Although we are not yet prepared to announce the full details of each course, we are actively working on gathering data, recommendations for a safe opening, and expect to have an announcement in early June, if not before. We continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Governor of New York, SUNY and our local health officials to inform our plans. Our number one priority will be the health and safety of our students and employees.

We will keep you informed through email, text messages, and on the college’s website. Your continued patience while we weigh all of our options with your health and safety at the forefront,  is greatly appreciated. 

I look forward to welcoming you back in the Fall.

KRISTINE DUFFY, Ed.D.

President
