Dr. James E. Mackin, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, is pleased to announce that Dr. Florian Reyda, Professor of Biology, will deliver this year’s Susan Smith Lecture titled, “Parasites, Evolution and Us,” on Tuesday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m. in the Otsego Grille, Morris Conference Center. A hearty hors d’oeuvre reception will follow the lecture. Created to recognize faculty achievement outside the classroom, the Susan Sutton Smith Faculty Prize for Academic Excellence is named in memory of the late SUNY Oneonta professor of English.  Dr. Reyda is the twenty-third recipient of this prize.  This event and the student awards presented are made possible by the generous gifts of SUNY Oneonta Alumni to the 2016-2017 Fund for Oneonta.  The Susan Sutton Smith Faculty Prize for Academic Excellence is made possible by an endowment created through the generosity of Dr. Thomas and Mrs. Mary Smith in memory of their daughter, Susan, and in honor of her commitment to academic excellence.  The lecture is free and open to the public.


SUNY Oneonta’s 2017 Day of Giving is March 30th

On March 30th, SUNY Oneonta embarks on an ambitious, one-day fundraising challenge. The goal is to have the most-ever donors make a gift to the college in a single 24 hour period. If enough alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents and friends make a gift to the college during the Day of Giving, thousands of dollars in challenge grants will be unlocked! In addition, we have a very special challenge for faculty and staff from Retired Professor Dr. David Ring. Dr. Ring will donate $5,000 to the college if 150 current or retired faculty and staff members make a gift during the Day of Giving! You can make the difference in our ability to meet this challenge. Stop by the Hunt Union International Lounge on March 30th to learn more!
