With the Spring 2012 semester scheduled to begin next week on Tuesday, January 17, 2012, College employees in all departments are excited and getting ready for the students’ return.
Kicking off each semester has always been a gathering of all faculty and staff in the Stuart Steiner Theatre for a ‘welcome back’ address given by the College president, and also introductions of all new employees. For 2012, this tradition continues, but with a new opportunity. After President James M. Sunser’s welcome address, College employees will hear from Dr. Gerard Puccio, chair of the Creative Studies Department at Buffalo State College. He is a nationally renowned expert in creative problem solving and will speak on the “Innovation Era” and the importance of integrating creativity into education across all curriculum.
The media is welcome to attend this event.
