Reading Is Fundamental: Literacy in Our Schools and Around the Globe

By Kameylah Hakim, assessment specialist, Niagara Frontier Center

March 14, 2014

The third in the series of Student Affairs Committee Social Responsibility forums, Reading IsFundamental: Literacy in Our Schools and Around the Globe, will be held Wednesday, March 19 from 6-9 p.m. and will once again be hosted in centers across the state and video-conferenced for ESC-TV. Literacy has great importance to individuals not only for the sake of gaining education and attaining career goals, but it also is important to aid citizens in becoming life-long learners who will contribute to global development. A panel of faculty, headed by Metropolitan Center mentor, Kevin Woo, from across the state will address issues pertinent to this topic.

Panelists for the Upcoming Forum: 

  • Kevin Woo, mentor in the science, mathematics and technology area of study, Metropolitan Center - Manhattan
  • Mark Abendroth, mentor, Master of Arts in Teaching, School for Graduate Studies and Metropolitan Center - Manhattan
  • Troy Jones, mentor in the educational studies area of study, Long Island Center - Staten Island
  • Dianne Ramdelholl, mentor, Master of Arts in Adult Learning, School for Graduate Studies and Harry Van Arsdale Center for Labor Studies

This forum is last in the successful three-part Student Affairs Committee series: Social Responsibility: Whose Responsibility Is It?, and proves to be another impactful event. Register online to attend the forum (either at a center or online) by March 18, 2014. Space is limited.
