The Division of College Advancement thanks Educational Psychology, Counseling, and Special Education professor Brian Beitzel for his work building connections with SUNY Oneonta alumni and friends during his sabbatical last academic year. During that time, Beitzel presented his research at conferences in Hawaii, Dubai, Vienna, Bangkok, Dublin and Athens – and, when possible, visited Red Dragons to talk about the work of the college. Beitzel’s work with Advancement, he said, “helped build a mutual understanding of what each part of the college does. The more we can understand each other’s goals, the more we can work together.”
Beitzel recently received an American Council on Education fellowship, where he will spend a year on a different college campus and learn about the administrative side of higher education.
Congratulations to Dan Payne. In a recent ceremony in Albany, Dr. Dan Payne of the English Department was promoted to Distinguished Teaching Professor by Chancellor Kristina Johnson. President Nancy Kleniewski and Distinguished Service professors Janet Nepke and Gretchen Sorin were in attendance.
