The Ready Center brings together three departments: Advising and First-Year Programs, Career Services, and International Programs. The new location in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center aims to assist students in reaching their academic and career goals by providing services in a “one-stop-shop” format.

“Students will visit the Ready Center during every stage of their academic career at SUNY Canton,” said President Zvi Szafran. “Our staff will guide them through their transition from high school to college; connect them with internship, employment, or post-graduate opportunities; and even help them to choose an exciting study-abroad experience.”

The brand new SUNY Canton Ready Center houses the college’s Academic Advising, Career Services and International Programs offices and staff in a large open space within the Campus Center. The student-focused offices can help students with all facets of their time at college, according to SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran.

The student-focused offices can help students with all facets of their time at college, according to SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran.

The concept for the Ready Center was modeled on the successful “One-Hop Shop” project that was completed in 2014, which combined several key administrative offices into one location. There, students have access to the Registrar’s Office, Financial Aid Office and College Association services.

“We are constantly looking for ways in which we can help our students maximize the value and efficiency of their time on campus by putting related offices under one roof,” Szafran said. “An added benefit is that the Ready Center is just steps away from the One-Hop Shop, the Student Activities Office, campus eateries, the book store, mailroom and Davis Health Center.”

The Ready Center has been operating for nearly a month, and initial feedback from students has been positive.

“It is a rewarding feeling to see students leave my office feeling like they have accomplished more than expected in one visit,” said Coordinator for International Student Initiatives Erin Lassail. “I can rest assured knowing they achieved what was needed and are not leaving an appointment feeling overwhelmed.”

The Ready Center, located in Room 224 of the Richard W. Miller Campus Center, is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Ethical Policing and Body-Worn Cameras Among Topics at SUNY Canton’s Annual Law Enforcement Day, March 28

Thursday, March 24th, 2016

SUNY Canton has invited speakers to address “Ethics in Criminal Justice,” including timely conversations about body-worn cameras and interrogation techniques at the sixth annual Law Enforcement Day.

The college’s Criminal Justice department will be holding the daylong series of presentations Monday, March 28, in SUNY Canton’s Kingston Theater.

“Law Enforcement Day allows our students to learn from experts and experienced professionals,” said Susan E. Buckley, SUNY Canton criminal justice department chair. “In the past, we’ve highlighted many areas of criminal investigation, anti-terrorism, and law enforcement management. This year’s theme will focus on the current ethical challenges criminal justice professionals face in many aspects of their daily careers.”

The event begins at 10 a.m., with “Ethical Policing is Contagious” presented by retired Minneapolis Police Department Decorated Sergeant Michael W. Quinn. Quinn was an instructor in use of force, deadly force, firearms, chemical agents, high-risk warrants, SWAT tactics, instructor development and officer survival and is a noted expert on police ethics. He published “Walking With the Devil: The Police Code of Silence” in 2005, and wrote a monthly column on police ethics for Officer.com from 2006 to 2008. Currently, Quinn is working with the International Ethics and Leadership Training Bureau, LLP.

At 1 p.m., SUNY Canton Instructor Justin C. Spaulding will be presenting “Law Enforcement Considerations of Body-Worn Camera Technology.” Spaulding was previously employed as a police officer for the Colorado Springs Police Department, where he was assigned to patrol, investigations, revising standard operating procedures, training development, and teaching at the Colorado Springs Police Academy. “There has been an ongoing debate about the use and deployment of body-worn cameras,” Spaulding said. “The technology itself is part of a larger ethical conversation about policing philosophy and practices.”

Presentations conclude at 2:15 p.m. with “Mechanics and Dynamics of Obtaining and Evaluating Confession and Statement Evidence” with James L. Trainum, a former cold case homicide detective and the head of the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department’s violent crime case review project. He’s a noted advocate of interrogation reform and video taping interrogations. Trainum has made a study of false confessions and strongly encourages systems to avoid wrongful convictions. He has authored several publications and has made numerous presentations on a variety of law enforcement topics.

Law Enforcement Day is held as an extra-learning opportunity for students in the criminal justice programs. Other interested parties, including students, members of the law enforcement community and members of the public, are also encouraged to attend the free presentations.

SUNY Canton offers bachelor’s degree programs in Homeland Security, Criminal Investigation, Law Enforcement Leadership, as well as an associate degree in Criminal Justice. Alongside the David Sullivan St. Lawrence County Law Enforcement Academy, all of the college’s programs provide students with the theory and practical skills necessary to understand challenges and ethics of law enforcement.

New York State Open Government Executive Director Addresses FOIL During SUNY Canton Presentation

Monday, March 21st, 2016

Robert FreemanRobert J. Freeman, executive director of the New York State Committee on Open Government will be presenting about the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) and Open Meetings at 3 p.m., April 5, in SUNY Canton’s Kingston Theater.

Students from SUNY Canton’s Legal Studies program will have a close connection with the topical subject matter, according to Assistant Professor Alexander Lesyk.

“Awareness of the Freedom of Information Law, the Open Meetings Law and the Personal Privacy Protection Law is fundamental to navigating the complex relationship between citizens and their government,” he said. “This lecture is designed to help our students and community learn to be meaningful participants and stewards alongside our elected officials.”

Shortly after FOIL was created in 1974, Freeman quickly became a known authority on the law. His office is now a definitive source for what is and isn’t public information. Members of the media, lawyers and insurance companies frequently file FOIL requests to state and local governments. However, anyone can invoke the law to request the information behind governmental decisions. In some cases, individuals have issued FOIL requests for environmental data, or resumes of elected officials and appointed administrators.

Freeman has addressed numerous government related organizations, bar associations, and media groups in addition to lecturing at colleges and universities. He has addressed open government laws and concepts throughout the United States, as well as Canada, East Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. He also taught the only course in an American law school on public access to government information.

Stephen D. Button, St. Lawrence County Attorney said, “In addition to being one of the foremost authorities on public information and the public’s right to knowledge in the State, Mr. Freeman is one of the very best presenters I’ve ever seen.”

Freeman is the recipient of numerous honors, including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the New York State Associated Press Association.

The lecture is free and open to the public, but preregistration is requested. Contact the St. Lawrence County Attorney’s Office by phone (315) 379-2269 or email mzera@stlawco.org to make reservations

SUNY Canton’s Legal Studies program and St. Lawrence County are cosponsoring Freeman’s lecture and are continuing a partnership to provide quality legal-based education in the North Country.

New York Times Columnist and Bestselling Author Theresa Brown to Speak at SUNY Canton

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Theresa BrownTheresa Brown, RN, author of the book “The Shift: One Nurse, Twelve Hours, Four Patients’ Lives,” will speak at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 23, at SUNY Canton’s Roos House Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center.

The event is part of the spring installment of the college’s Living Writers Series and is cosponsored by Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center and Hospice and Palliative Care of St. Lawrence Valley. It is free and open to the public.

The publisher describes “The Shift” as an eye-opening and riveting account of Brown’s day as a nurse in a busy teaching hospital’s oncology ward. The reader is offered an unprecedented look into the individual struggles of patients and medical professionals, which reveals larger truths about medicine in the United States.

“The Shift” is a New York Times bestseller, and Brown has been a guest on NPR’s “Fresh Air with Terry Gross,” “Hardball with Chris Matthews” and ABC’s “20/20.” Her column “Bedside” was published in the New York Times op-ed page, as well as on the Times’ blog “Opinionator.” In 2009 she attended a White House press conference where President Obama quoted her New York Times article about health care reform.

“We are thrilled to partner with Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center and Hospice and Palliative Care of St. Lawrence Valley to bring such a timely and compelling literary voice from the field of medicine,” said SUNY Canton Assistant Professor of English and series creator Phil K. LaMarche. “Theresa Brown’s stories from the cancer floor of her hospital are fraught with personal drama and the difficult medical issues of our time.”

Dr. Danielle Ofri, author of “What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine,” described Brown’s book as a “compelling and compassionate human drama. If you want to understand how modern medicine ticks, fasten your seat belt and spend a day in the hospital with Theresa Brown on ‘The Shift.’”

Brown received a bachelor’s degree and a doctorate in English from the University of Chicago and a master’s degree from Columbia University. She has also taught writing and literature at Harvard, MIT and Tufts. Her first book, “Critical Care: A new Nurse Faces Death, Life, and Everything in Between,” is used by many schools as a nursing textbook. She currently works as a clinical nurse in Pittsburgh.

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Area high schools have begun competing in this year’s SUNY Canton Mock Trial Tournament. Students began prosecuting and defending opposing sides of a topical case this week, and will continue the series of spirited legal proceedings through April 8.

mock trial

The goal of the Mock Trial Program, co-sponsored by the New York State Bar Association (NSBA), the New York Bar Foundation, and the Law, Youth, & Citizenship (LYC) Program, is to teach high school students critical debating and trial skills. In preparing for their roles as attorneys and witnesses, high school student teams obtain first-hand knowledge of criminal and civil law, courtroom procedures, ethics, civility, and professionalism, as well as a greater understanding of the fundamental rights granted by the U.S. Constitution.

Each year, the assigned case reflects important current legal issues. This year, the schools will be arguing a criminal proceeding involving the suppression of evidence in an illegal drug case.

More than 350 teams representing thousands of students and 1,500 volunteer attorney coaches participate in the New York Statewide Mock Trial Program. Area participants include teams from Hammond Central School, Heuvelton Central School, Massena Central High School, Morristown Central School, Ogdensburg Free Academy, and Potsdam Central High School.

The judges who will preside in this year’s competitions include Marcia LaMay, the President of the St. Lawrence County Bar Association, Canton Town Justice Cathleen O’Horo, Jondavid DeLong, the Dean of SUNY Canton’s School of Business and Liberal Arts, Surrogate’s Court Attorney Michelle Ladouceur, Former District Attorney Nicole Duvé, and SUNY Canton Legal Studies faculty members William Jones and Rosemary Philips.

County winners will compete in regional tournaments in April and the top team from each of New York State’s six regions will then participate in the State Finals in Albany, New York in May.

Competitions will be held on designated days in SUNY Canton’s Kingston Theater and are free and open to the public.

For more information, or for a complete schedule of cases, please contact Alexander Lesyk, SUNY Canton assistant professor and legal studies curriculum coordinator, by phone (315) 386-7517 or email lesyka@canton.edu.

 

University Police Schedule Shelter in Place Drill March 24 at SUNY Canton

Monday, March 14th, 2016

The college will test its new Rave alert system alongside college-wide lockdown scenario.\

SUNY Canton University Police will be staging an exercise to help the campus community understand the procedures and precautions necessary during a lockdown situation.

The 30-minute shelter in place drill will commence at 9 a.m. Thursday, March 24, at the main campus, located at 34 Cornell Drive. Everyone on campus will be encouraged to stay inside, or go inside the nearest building and wait for the completion of the test.

“We want everyone to go into an interior room, close and lock the door if possible and stay away from the windows,” University Police Chief Alan P. Mulkin elaborated. “Although this is just a test, similar to a fire drill, we want everyone to follow our directions as if this were an actual emergency.”

Mulkin has invited area police agencies to participate in the exercise and to help the officers increase their familiarity with the campus. The officers will conduct a building-by-building search of the campus to observe the effectiveness of the lockdown.

“There will be a sizable police presence on campus during this time,” Mulkin said. “We don’t want anyone to be alarmed by their presence. Their sole purpose will be to help us conduct the shelter in place drill.”

All campus activities and classes will be active during the test and the entire procedure should not affect regularly scheduled college activities.

SUNY Canton Adopts New Emergency Notification System

Rave Mobile SecurityCollege officials will signal the beginning and ending of the shelter in place exercise by using its new Canton Rave Alert system.

“Everyone with a campus email address should receive notification of the drill,” said Kyle A. Brown, the chief information officer for both SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam. “Many of the subscribers will also receive text and voice messages as well. The new Rave system completely integrates with Facebook and Twitter and will create a single, unified message delivered across all platforms.”

The college formerly used New York Alert (NY-Alert) in a similar capacity, but found Rave to be a more viable long-term solution for addressing campus emergencies, notifications and weather related cancellations. Earlier in the semester, the college encouraged that faculty, staff and students enroll in the NY-Alert. Brown said those who enrolled previously have been loaded into the new system. During a series of campus communications, college officials will ask the on-campus community to update their information in anticipation of the practice lockdown.

SUNY Potsdam is also planning to roll out its own Potsdam Rave Alert system within weeks of SUNY Canton’s drill. The two colleges purchased the service together through shared services personnel in the Administrative Affairs division. The efficient strategies used to levy shared procurement were implemented by SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. Combined purchasing allows both colleges to adopt new technologies with significant savings to both campuses.
