Thank you to everyone who donated time to me while I was out on maternity leave with my first-born daughter. It is both a privilege and an honor to work with such wonderful people across campus. – Amanda Richter

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.
