Dr. Barbara Palmer Shineman ’65, M ’71, professor emerita of education, sifts through memorabilia of her late husband, Dr. Richard S. Shineman. She finds a card their granddaughter Megan gave Dick for his birthday one year. It reads, “The man who reaches for his star is admired, but the man who helps others reach theirs is loved.”
Work is ongoing at Oswego’s new Science and Engineering Innovation Corridor. Renovation of the now-vacant Piez Hall and construction of an addition that will more than triple its present 80,000 square feet are scheduled for completion in 2013. In the meantime, science classes, offices and labs have been relocated to Snygg Hall. The multiphase project, whose total costs have been estimated at $118 million, is being bonded through the SUNY Construction Fund. Oswego is constructing the new science facilities to the U.S. Green Building Council’s gold standard for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
