Third summer session begins
Saturday, June 23, 3:15 a.m. - 3:15 a.m.
Talk: “Lake Ontario - What We Can Do?”
Susan Gateley will speak about “Lake Ontario - What We Can Do?” She is a life-long Lake Ontario watcher and a sailor upon its waters for 50 years. The talk is part of a Brown Bag speaker series tying into the "We Are Lake Ontario" exhibition. Gateley has written many magazine articles and a half dozen books on the lake’s ecology and maritime history. In support of the campus-wide project on fresh water, she will discuss what’s being done and what more we can do to heal and restore our still great but troubled lake. Though now the most stressed of the five Great Lakes, Lake Ontario is still an amazing and resilient ecosystem. Free. Part of SUNY Oswego's two-year, college-wide Grand Challenges Project: Fresh Water for All. For more information, visit oswego.edu/grand-challenges.
Location: Oswego State Downtown

Student success is hinged on many factors. One of these factors is the abuse of alcohol and other drugs. While recent data (Faculty CORE2010) tells us that faculty are concerned about drugs and academics, we are also finding that many faculty members may not be sure of what their role is in helping students, or even how to identify a drug and alcohol related problem in the classroom. This workshop is designed to give faculty and staff members the knowledge and skills needed to properly identify and intervene with a student who may be experiencing academic problems due to these issues, information about how to prevent these issues with your students, and information about the resources that are available to you if alcohol and other drug issues arise.
