Genesee Community College Board of Trustees Names Five Professors Emeriti
Genesee Community College’s Board of Trustees this evening granted the title “Professor Emeritus” to five recently retired faculty members.  The term “professor emeritus” is an honorary title, often bestowed by academic institutions on faculty members who retire after many years of dedicated service.  At Genesee, professors emeriti have given at least 20 years of service to the College.

Named as professors emeriti were:

  • Donna J. Blake, retired Professor of Human Services. Professor Blake joined Genesee Community College in 1971, and resides in Stafford, NY.
  • Maxine M. Long, retired Professor of English, who joined the faculty in 1968, and resides in Livonia, NY.
  • Bernard Marcus, retired Professor of Biology, who joined the faculty in 1968, and resides in Batavia, NY.  
  • J. Michael Powers, retired Professor of Art, who joined the faculty in 1973, and resides in Batavia, NY.  
  • Charles M. Platt, retired Professor of Communications Media, who joined the faculty in 1979, and resides in Batavia, NY.

President Stuart Steiner said that these professors emeriti have a standing invitation to be active in the life of Genesee Community College.  “These five individuals are valued members of our college family,” he said.  “We look forward to seeing them at college events, in the library and, whenever possible, in the classroom.”
