Tuition assistance programs are available for SUNY employees based on the employee’s negotiating unit and also through the SUNY Tuition Waiver Program.
For those wanting to take advantage of the tuition assistance offered by your negotiating unit, please contact your union office or the Human Resources staff (x2509) for information on how to apply. Employees must meet certain requirements to be eligible for this support.
Tuition assistance is also available through the SUNY Employee Tuition Waiver Program. Employees can receive partial reimbursement for a maximum of six credits per semester for courses taken at a SUNY institution. The applications for this program are available in the Office of Human Resources, Netzer 208, and should be returned to the Human Resources Office after completion. The deadline for submission of applications for this program for courses being taken during the spring 2018 semester is Thursday, January 25, 2018.
You may want to look into both programs in order to see which provides the greatest amount of assistance. If you have any questions, please phone Betty Tirado at ext. 2583.
The Activities Council is pleased to be showing 14 movies this semester in the Red Dragon Theatre. Screenings are Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 6:30 and 9 p.m., with an additional matinee on Sundays at 1 p.m., and it is free with a SUNY Oneonta ID.
The council would also love to have any faculty member who might be willing to speak about any of the films “host” the screening. The host would introduce the film and, hopefully, lead a follow-up discussion. We would provide the movie, LEAD Credit, popcorn, and another dessert or snack if there is a follow-up discussion. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in hosting a screening.

Will you have a TA who tutors this semester? CADE is opening its Tutor Training to teaching assistants. In addition to introducing key concepts of how to plan and evaluate the effectiveness of an individual tutoring interaction, we will help TAs recognize the line between helping a student understand concepts and inadvertently doing the work (or the thinking) for the student.
For more information about how we can help your TA work more effectively with your students, please call Amy Crouse-Powers at x2819 or email her at Amy.Crouse-Powers@oneonta.edu.
Plan now for spring! CADE Ambassadors can come speak with your classes about the services CADE offers. Peer tutoring is available for many 100- and 200-level courses. We have academic coaching and professional writing tutoring available, as well. Email Amy.Crouse-Powers@oneonta.edu or call x2819 to request a CADE Ambassador to explain our services to your 100- or 200-level spring class.
