  • Presidential search team hosts open forums on Wednesday, May 3
    - Posted on April 28, 2017
    • To faculty, staff and students,

      As many of you are aware, Hudson Valley Community College has retained the executive search firm Isaacson, Miller to help with our search for a President. Search consultants with the firm, Kate Barry, principal and Morgan Sharoff, senior associate, will be working closely with us over the coming months.

      On May 3, Kate and Morgan will hold several open forums (see schedule below) to listen to your perspective on the College, how you would expect to interface with the President, and what you consider to be the key challenges and opportunities the new President will face. These discussions will help our search consultants learn about the role and gain an understanding of the College’s culture, current environment, and the organizational context in which this President will operate. In particular, they hope to hear your thoughts on the following:

      • In hiring this person, what will be the fundamental differences at HVCC one year from now, three years from now, and five years from now?
      • Are there more subjective or informal measures for determining the success of this individual?
      • What institutional activities need to be sustained? Which ones enhanced? Which ones initiated or ended?
      • Based on the objectives identified, what do you think are the qualifications and experience of an ideal candidate?  What is essential and what might be helpful? What are the personal attributes most important for this role?

      These questions were developed to help us think about the ways that we can tangibly assess candidates and measure the success of a new President.

      Kate and Morgan also will ask for your suggestions of people to contact in their outreach to build a pool of candidates for this position. They will draw upon their own networks, but want to make sure they tap into ours as well. They will welcome suggestions of possible candidates, but suggestions of thoughtful sources who might lead them to strong candidates are just as important.

      Once they have had an opportunity to speak with people here at HVCC, Kate and Morgan will work with the search committee to develop a position profile that will provide a compelling description of Hudson Valley Community College. The position profile will outline the College’s history and mission, as well as a realistic and enticing picture of the challenges, measures of success, and ideal skills, experience, and qualifications of the new President. When finalized, this document will be made publicly available and will be shared broadly by the search firm with prospective candidates and helpful sources.

      Thank you for your participation in this important effort. As a key stakeholder in this search, your input will be important to the outcome of this search and the success of the new President.

      Neil Kelleher, Chairman of the Board of Trustees

  • Student’s efforts resurrect steel bridge entry in time for annual competition; college places 5th of 13th schools
    - Posted on April 24, 2017
    • The American Society of Civil Engineers Student Chapter at Hudson Valley Community College is proud to announce that our student steel bridge team finished in 5th place out of 13 schools at the Upstate New York Regional Conference last weekend at Syracuse University in the Carrier Dome. Our team finished ahead of SUNY Polytechnic, SUNY Buffalo, Clarkson University, RPI, Montreal Polytechnic, West Point, Syracuse University and Cornell University. The 4 schools that beat us were ETS from Montreal, SUNY Canton, University of Waterloo and RIT.

      Hudson Valley has participated in this competition annually since 1993 (with the exception of 2016), and according to the national head judge, we are the only community college that competes in the event.

      Each year the students design a steel bridge that is approximately 20 feet long and 4 feet wide when assembled, but no single piece of the bridge can be larger than 6 inches by 4 inches by 3 feet long. At the competition, they are scored based on how fast they can assemble the bridge, how much the bridge weighs, and how much the bridge bends under a load of 2,500 pounds.

      Prior to 2016, this project was always completed as part of a class. In 2016, the department chair decided that we should remove the project from the class. The students still tried to design a bridge that year, but found it to be too much work as an extracurricular project on top of their regular course work, their jobs and their daily commute to school.

      This year, it happened again, until January when freshman James Blough decided he wanted to design a bridge. James comes from a family of machinists and he was confident that he could design it. The design process usually starts in September and James began on Feb. 1. James managed to design each piece of the bridge with some help from classmate Charlie Tryon and had it ready for fabrication on March 16. Unfortunately, when he finished his drawings and spoke to STS Steel in Schenectady, who typically donates the materials and labor to construct the bridge, STS had become too busy and could not fabricate the bridge on the time schedule we needed. Not giving up, James asked STS to order the materials and to cut the pieces up for him. Then James picked up the materials from STS Steel, brought them home, and with the help of his father and two brothers, they did all the welding and drilling to fabricate all the individual bridge pieces over spring break.

      The bridge was brought back to campus on the Monday following spring break. Upon assembling the bridge for the first time, it failed two of the tests required of the bridge at the competition. At that time, seniors, Christian Makasi, Zachary Ogden, Nick Schindler, Evan Connolly, Will Sullivan, Charlie Tryon, and Matt Cashman helped modify the bridge to pass these tests. The team performed the final modifications two days before the competition.

      These students did a fantastic job representing Hudson Valley at the competition and should be commended.

  • HVCC Novel Bunch: meet Sandra Hutchison, author of Bardwell’s Folly
    - Posted on April 20, 2017
    • Join us for the final spring 2017 meeting of the HVCC Novel Bunch in welcoming author and Hudson Valley Community College faculty member Sandra Hutchison. 

      When:  Monday, April 24, 2017 at 2 p.m.
      Where: Dwight Marvin Library Multipurpose Room

      Excerpt from Goodreads:
      What if the only way to find home is to leave it? Dori Bardwell’s father was the white Southern author of THE novel about slavery, a man who settled his large family up north in a replica of a plantation house and never spoke of his past. A tragic accident pulled Dori from college to care for her only remaining brother, but now the money is running out, her ex-boyfriend appears intent on revenge, a media baron has designs on her father’s last, unfinished manuscript, and her own thoughtless blackface joke is about to go viral and turn her life upside down.

      About the author:
      Born and raised in the Tampa Bay area, Sandra Hutchison survived her parents’ move to the small town of Greenfield, Massachusetts one snowy winter and eventually stopped sulking about it, though it’s possible she’s still working it out in her fiction. She lives in upstate New York, where she works on her writing when she is not teaching at Hudson Valley Community College.

    • To Students, Faculty and Staff:

      Hudson Valley Community College, in cooperation with the New York National Guard 2nd Civil Support Team, will hold an emergency drill in and around the Joseph L. Bruno Stadium between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 12.

      The drill will prompt a staged response from local law enforcement, Public Safety and members of the college’s Emergency Preparedness Committee. Please expect to see military vehicles, police and local emergency response personnel on campus.

      The campus community also will receive messages that test college communication tools, potentially including the building public address system, email, phone, website and social media channels. (The SUNY-NY Alert system will not be deployed in this instance as it is maintained and tested by the NYS Emergency Management Office.) All messages will identify the exercise as a drill intended to further enhance the safety of our campus.

      Thank you,

      Rich Edwards
      Chair, Emergency Preparedness Committee

  • Threads reading and celebration is April 20
    - Posted on April 11, 2017
    • Please join us on Thursday, April 20 from noon to 3 p.m. for a reading and celebration of Threads.

      Threads is the Hudson Valley Community College publication that includes student writing and artwork. The magazine is edited by English Department faculty members and is published once an academic year. Threads provides students with an opportunity for creative and academic expression, including but not limited to, poetry, short stories, essays, photography, and art. All Hudson Valley Community College students are invited to submit their work for publication.

      Threads does not necessarily seek to publish the “best” student work, but rather strives to represent a variety of abilities, reflecting the diversity of the campus community.

      Additionally, every April the English Department hosts a college-wide presentation where students read and discuss their published work. The annual Threads presentation promotes campus-wide involvement in, awareness of, and sensitivity to writing and artwork from the college’s diverse student population.

      All faculty, staff, and students are invited
      to attend this annual presentation!

  • Spring 2017 withdrawal deadline is Thursday, April 13
    - Posted on April 11, 2017
    • Spring 2017 Withdrawal Deadline is Thursday, April 13, 2017.

      This is just a reminder that Thursday, April 13, 2017 is the last day to withdraw from courses for the Spring 2017 semester. It is strongly recommended that a student discusse the impact of either course withdrawals or a total withdrawal with an academic advisor and the Financial Aid Office prior to completing the process. All completed forms must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 13, 2017 in order to receive a grade of “W” (withdrawal) on your record.

      Course Withdrawals
      A student may withdraw from a course or courses prior to the end of the day (5 p.m.) on Thursday, April 13, 2017. A student must obtain the approval and the signature from his or her advisor or department chair for course withdrawals. The official date of withdrawal is the date that the completed form is received in the Registrar’s Office. Discontinuance of class attendance or notice to the instructor does not constitute authorized withdrawal.

      Course withdrawals from a term may jeopardize current and future financial aid eligibility.

      Total Withdrawal
      A student may withdraw from all registered courses within a term prior to the end of the day (5 p.m.) on Thursday, April 13, 2017. To complete a total withdrawal, please visit the Registrar’s Office in the Guenther Enrollment Services Center, Room 136. The official date of withdrawal is the date that the form is completed.

      A total withdrawal from a term may jeopardize current and future financial aid eligibility.

      If a student is unable to complete either of the above in-person, a letter with the student’s signature will be accepted as long as it is postmarked and mailed through the U.S. Postal Service by April 13, 2017. Any request received after the deadline will not be accepted.

      Following a “very strict credo NOT to alter the original LEGO-designed brick in any way” — no cutting, drilling or gluing — Melick took advantage of the toy’s remarkable flexibility to build a fully-functional musical instrument. Melick will talk about his inspiration and process to build the drum set, perform and answer questions from the audience. He may even let drummers sample the kit themselves after the presentation.
