SUNY Canton Adds Cybersecurity to its List of Tech-Focused Four-Year Programs

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

SUNY Canton continues its career-driven academic expansion by creating a new Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity.

“Our newest program leverages our strength in Information Technology,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “The field of Cybersecurity continues to grow as we continually adopt an omnipresent digital lifestyle and become more aware of digital security concerns. SUNY Canton will now be the college to train new students for placement in these much-needed areas.”

The increased demand for professionals who are able to prevent or overcome cyber-attacks follows the rise of cyber threats in both private organizations and to national security. Such threats are a major concern for financial institutions, medical services providers, and government agencies.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook through 2026 is about 28 percent, or much faster than average for all occupations. The median pay for an information security analyst, a position obtainable with a bachelor’s degree, is $92,600.

“We saw a need for qualified professionals who can help combat cybercrime, and we made a program to fill that need,” said SUNY Canton Provost Douglas M. Scheidt. “In addition to providing another career path for incoming students, Cybersecurity will enhance the college’s reputation and educational capabilities in computing technologies.”

SUNY Canton’s program prepares students to assess security needs within computer and network systems, recommend safeguard solutions and manage the implementation and maintenance of security devices. The program will be taught by qualified faculty from the Canino School of Engineering Technology, including Associate Professor Yu Chin “Eric” Cheng and Lecturer Minhua Wang. Wang is the college’s authority on cybercrime and teaches a course on ethical hacking.

“To create an effective defense, we need to understand how people could exploit security weaknesses,” Wang said. “Hackers try to find all of the holes in a security system. We try to block those holes.”

The program runs parallel to the college’s Information Technology curriculum, and works well with SUNY Canton’s established Criminal Justice, Health Care Management, Homeland Security and Legal Studies offerings, among others.

Cybersecurity is the college’s 26th bachelor’s degree and one of nine available bachelor of science programs. Both the State University of New York and the New York State Education Department have approved the four-year offering. The program will be available for both freshmen and transfer students for the Fall 2018 semester.

The college’s other newest four-year programs include Technological Communications, Game Design and Development and Agribusiness Management. To apply for admission into any of these programs, contact the SUNY Canton Office of Admissions by phone at 315-386-7123 or email admissions@canton.edu.

SUNY Canton Names Veterans Lounge to Honor Alumnus and Donor Raymond G. Modell

Monday, October 30th, 2017

Ray Modell

SUNY Canton has named its Veterans Lounge for a 1962 graduate and U.S. Air Force veteran.

College President Zvi Szafran announced that the space would be named after Raymond G. Modell of Syracuse in a small ceremony held Thursday, Oct. 5, in Cook Hall. Modell made a significant gift to name the lounge and enhance the college’s efforts to provide a welcoming and supportive environment for veterans.

“We chose to name the lounge after Mr. Modell in recognition of his generous support and dedication to helping others,” Szafran said. “He embodies our mission and is an inspiration to future students.”

Modell was the first of his family to attend and graduate from college. He enrolled at SUNY Canton in 1960 on the GI Bill after receiving an honorable discharge from the Air Force. After college, he had successful careers with General Electric and Niagara Mohawk.

“I think this lounge is a great resource for student veterans,” Modell said after unveiling a plaque outside of the space. “I know first-hand the problems of coming back to college after being away for a while. This lounge would have been a great benefit to me, and I’m sure it will be to future servicemen and women.”

President Szafran and Ray Modell unveil the new plaque in front of the Veterans Lounge.

Modell has made gifts to the Canton College Foundation every year since 1982. In 2000, he established the Modell Family Endowed Scholarship, which is awarded annually to a student in the Electrical Engineering Technology program. He is a member of the Payson-Martin Society and has included a gift to the college in his estate. Modell was inducted in the college-wide Hall of Fame in 2012.

“There isn’t a better person to recognize with the naming of the Veterans Lounge than Mr. Modell,” said Vice President for Advancement Anne M. Sibley. “With this dedication, we honor the contributions and sacrifices made by our alumnus and friend.”

SUNY Canton Announces 26th Bachelor’s Degree Program: Technological Communications

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

SUNY Canton will begin offering a new Technological Communications Bachelor of Science Degree program for the Fall 2018 semester.

“We are building upon the proven strength of our technology-driven programs to offer students new opportunities,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “The Technological Communications program will produce skilled content specialists who are able to meet the emerging needs of a tech-focused global workforce.”

Students work in the new Digital Studio

Students work in the new Digital Studio, one of the SUNY Canton classrooms that will be used by the new Technological Communications program.

The college has received approval from the State University of New York and the State Education Department to begin its newest program, which will be offered through face-to-face classes. It is the 26th bachelor’s degree and the third new four-year program announced in 2017. Other new programs include Game Design and Development and Agribusiness Management.

The newest major was designed by several faculty members from the college’s English and Humanities Department, according to School of Business and Liberal Arts Dean Jondavid S. DeLong.

“One of our most popular associate degrees is our two-year Liberal Arts program,” the dean said. “Technological Communications will give graduates of that program, and others interested in communicating their ideas in a new media world, the opportunity to use technology to reach a broad audience with innovative and compelling content.”

DeLong also explained that the new program would fit in well with the Graphic and Multimedia Design and Game Design and Development programs offered in the Canino School of Engineering Technology. At the beginning of the semester, the college invested more than $250,000 in a new Digital Studio with state of the art technology for all three programs to use.

“We looked at a traditional liberal arts degree and decided that students would benefit from using the latest technology to create, augment and share their ideas.” said Associate Professor Sean T. O’Brien who teaches English courses in the new program. “We built our program around the past, present, and future of technology so that students leave with enduring communications skills to help them meet 21st-century challenges.”

Technological Communications includes courses in podcasting, composition, gender in media, social identity, digital graphic storytelling, online media and popular culture, in addition to advanced-level internship opportunities.

“As English faculty, our strength is addressing the ways that print forms are moving into emerging media genres,” said Assistant Professor Alainya Kavaloski, a member of the English and Humanities Department. “Students can expect to learn the skills necessary to design and create digital games, interactive stories and web-based narratives in line with contemporary modes of communication.”

Students can apply for admission into the program through the SUNY online application available at www.canton.edu/apply/ or by contacting the SUNY Canton Office of Admissions by email at admissions@canton.edu or by calling (315) 386-7123.

College President Zvi Szafran announced the “50 Years on the Hill” campaign today, (Wednesday, Aug. 23) during his state of the campus address. Additionally, the college unveiled a special new logo to be used through 2018, marking its official anniversary.

“SUNY Canton’s modern identity has been defined by our growth and development during our 50 years on top of this hill,” Szafran said. “In 1967 we offered a handful of two-year programs for around 1,500 students. Today, we have 25 bachelor’s degrees, 21 associate degrees, and 5 certificate programs for more than 3,200 students.

Coins Challenge SUNY Canton Students to Complete College on Time

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

SUNY Canton is giving out symbolic challenge coins to inspire student success during each year of their education.

When Zvi Szafran first started his presidency at SUNY Canton, he wanted to find a way to reward students for successfully completing each fall semester. At about the same time, the college’s Veteran’s Association presented him with their monogrammed challenge coin for assuming SUNY Canton’s presidency. Szafran was so impressed with this token that he decided to give every student a coin when they successfully transitioned between semesters.

A SUNY Canton student holds challenge coins issued by the President’s Office corresponding with each year of college.

“I wanted to present students with something they could hold and want to keep,” Szafran said. “Beyond grades, honors and awards, the coins serve as a reminder that we are proud of their accomplishments and that we are dedicated to seeing them through their entire education.”

Challenge coins have significance in the U.S. armed forces as a traditional symbol of a job well done and are often used to build camaraderie. The symbolic presentation of the tokens has carried over into civilian life. At SUNY Canton the coins serve as a positive incentive for students to complete their degrees on time, according to Szafran.

Four students hold their coins in front of themselves.

Pictured are (l to r) SUNY Canton students Liam J. Nihmey of Potsdam, Tyranny Chartrand of Castorland, Megan M. Brockner of Callicoon Center and Victoria Bean of Essex Junction, Vt. after receiving their first-year challenge coins.

Starting in the spring 2015 semester, all freshmen and transfer students who completed their first semester were presented with a challenge coin. The college presents differently color-coded coins between students’ third, fifth and seventh semesters, meaning a student can earn as many as four coins corresponding with their degree.  The fourth and final coin, gold in color, will be presented for the first time in spring 2018.

More than 300 coins recently were presented in the Spring 2017 semester, and more will be mailed out to online students.

Frencisca Medina, a Law Enforcement Leadership major from Schenectady, was excited to pick up her second coin.

Two students hold their coins.

“I’ve kept my first coin in my purse all year just to remind myself that I did it,” she said. “It’s motivation to keep on doing my best.”

Dylan F. Spicer, an Applied Psychology major from Massena, was one of several students surprised by the recognition. “I took five years off from school,” he said. “Now I know I have to keep it up.”

In addition to the coins, the SUNY Canton Alumni Association presents a special medallion to each graduating student at commencement.
