I am pleased to remind you that the College’s 2017 Convocation will be taking place today at 2:30pm in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P) Williamson Theatre.

In commemoration of this event, I am also pleased to provide you with the Celebration of Accomplishments, which presents some of our major institutional achievements over the past year.

The last three years have focused on our legacy trilogy: institution, place, and mission. Today, we build upon the foundation of our legacies by looking to the future that will be shaped by our new Strategic Plan, Opportunity to Ascend: Strategic Priorities for the College of Staten Island, 2017-2022.

Convocation is defined as the action of calling people together. All of our accomplishments are the result of the “coming together” of our College community—our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends. Because of your efforts, we have much to celebrate this year.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at Convocation.
