Greetings! I am delighted to introduce the 2006-2007 Annual Report from the CSI Foundation. Every year, CSI’s reputation grows both locally and worldwide, invigorated by our standards of academic excellence, our talented and dedicated faculty, and the extraordinary achievements of our students and graduates. My predecessor, Marlene Springer, retired from her 13-year presidency this past August with an outstanding legacy. For example, in September, the first full class of students entered the Verrazano School at CSI, an innovative and challenging program for high-achieving students. In addition, CSI’s Master Plan for the upcoming decade is moving forward, and as we grow, we continue to enjoy a very special relationship with the people of Staten Island and New York City. Through the efforts of our Center for the Study of Staten Island, Staten Island Project, the College works together with members of our community to maintain a socially, economically, and intellectually vibrant Staten Island. And, CSI is now home to Athena, one of the
fastest supercomputers in the region; researchers at CSI now have unprecedented computing power to solve complex problems in fields of study ranging from traffic modeling to quantum mechanics. These initiatives, and indeed all programs at CSI, are geared toward providing more and better opportunities for our students, who, at the end of every day, remain our highest priority. We exist both for and because of them, and their success is our primary motivation. Drawn to our outstanding faculty, our beautiful campus, and our world-class facilities, more and more students each year come to CSI to expand their horizons and realize their goals. They are grateful to you, the members of our community who share in CSI’s mission and vision of excellence, and I look forward to our continued work together.

has been instrumental in the formation and success of CSI. A ceremony, attended by CSI administration, faculty, alumni, community members, and dignitaries from the entire state, was a fitting way to conclude an exceptionally bright chapter of Senator Marchi’s life, and commence one that is equally promising. The event marks the most successful fundraising special event by the CSI Foundation, raising more than $180,000.
First and foremost, I would like to thank each and every donor whose generosity and diligent volunteer efforts have enabled the CSI Foundation, Inc. to achieve its third consecutive year of raising in excess of $1 million. This year, much of our focus in terms of special events revolved around the retirement of Senator John J. Marchi, a legendary figure in the New York State Senate, where he served with distinction for 50 years. For nearly six decades, he has been a tireless advocate for Staten Island and the City of New York. His firm commitment to education at all levels
Through the effort of Elizabeth Dubovsky, Executive Director, the scope of our relationship with the Staten Island Foundation continues to expand and evolve. Its commitments through the end of fiscal year 2006 – 2007 make it the leading foundation source of support, having contributed in excess of $500,000 to CSI’s mission-critical objectives. Concluding its final year as a sponsor, the Staten Island Foundation has generously supported the SEEK Strategies for Success Program for five years. As pioneers of the program, and the sole underwriter of this tremendous effort, it has ensured that generations of students at PS 57 and IS 49 are equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in their young academic careers.
Through the generosity and imagination of Seth Edwards, Vice President of Community Relations, JP Morgan Chase has established an entrepreneurial club at IS 49 as an extension to Strategies for Success, in order to provide children of disadvantaged backgrounds financial literacy skills that they can adopt and apply to their own lives. Through a $20,000 grant, this club creates a handson opportunity for students to learn about important banking issues, such as creating accounts, money and credit management, identity theft, and general business administration. Both CSI and IS 49 recognize the effect that this club can have on the participating students and their choice of career, lifestyle, and future financial situation.
The Richmond County Savings Foundation, led by Cesar Claro, Executive Director, through funding for the Literacy Teaching Training Center and the Center for the Arts, marks its most significant financial commitment to the Foundation in the history of our partnership. Thanks to its generosity as the sole sponsor of the Literacy Center, CSI will provide students and educators, in both CSI and the Staten Island community, access to the latest technological advances. Providing such resources to students in the early stages of elementary education will prove to have a profound impact on their ability to reach their academic potential. Their commitment to Center for the Arts is exemplary and support for this season has grown to $25,000.
The Staten Island Foundation is refocusing its efforts in support of CSI and the community, by sponsoring research on Visioning, a process that would engage the community in developing a plan for the borough’s future, through a $25,000 grant. In addition, the Staten Island Foundation has funded a continuing education initiative, by sponsoring the Adult Learning Center.
Dr. Michael Shugrue, one of CSI’s most generous benefactors continues to champion the arts at CSI. During the past year, he has underwritten several memorable performances, led by the Philharmonic Quintet of New York and the Canaan Chamber Ensemble, as well as the performance and address to CSI Phi Beta Kappa Associates by Judith LeClair, Principal Bassoonist of the New York Philharmonic. These events continue to
The Center for the Study of Staten Island, Staten Island Project (CSI-SIP) completed the Staten Island Social Capital Community Benchmark Study, the most comprehensive social science poll of the attitudes and behavior in the Borough’s history. The 25 minute survey of nearly 1,000 residents measured levels of trust, community participation and the nature of personal and familial relationships.
CSI launches a new Website for the school’s 12 varsity sports. Features of the interactive site include live in-game statistics for CSI home games, archived statistical information, and daily updates for members and students regarding building hours and group fitness classes.
Due in large part to the tremendous generosity of the Walt Disney Company Foundation, CSI’s Engineering Department had a great year. Through the tireless efforts of the DiFranco family and WABC-TV’s President and General Manager, J. David Davis, a $64,000 gift was secured toward the Donald DiFranco Memorial Scholarship. Donald DiFranco, a CSI alumnus, was a dedicated WABC broadcast engineer who tragically passed in the attacks of September 11, 2001. This scholarship endowment, which with help of family and friends, exceeded its goal of $100,000, supports deserving students seeking education in Engineering/ Information Technology at the CSI. I’d also like to thank fellow board member Samir Farag, who established an endowment of $30,000 for students pursuing an education in business/engineering.
I am proud to announce the addition of two new Foundation board members: John Alexander, Chairman and CEO of Northfield Bank, with deep ties in the local community and a pioneer of the non-profit internships at CSI; and, Richard Prinzi ‘93, a partner of the accounting practice of Integrated Financial Service, Inc., and former long-standing President of the CSI Alumni Association. I am certain that these two new board members will play an instrumental part in driving the mission of the Foundation.

draw remarkable attendance, as they offer rare opportunities to experience world-class acts, free of charge. Nearly nine hundred guests attended the Philharmonic Quintet of New York in the Springer Concert Hall, which was second in attendance for a CSI Foundation event, behind only the inaugural New York Philharmonic event a year ago.
While it is easy to marvel in our success, it is important that we continue to raise funds toward programs that will enrich the academic experience at CSI. I take this opportunity to thank, once again, all of CSI’s dedicated supporters, and urge all alumni, friends, and community members to help us maintain the momentum we have built. Sincerely,
James Easley President

HONORING SEN. JOHN MARCHI AT CSI
John J. Marchi is a legendary figure in the New York State Senate where he served with distinction for the past 50 years. He was first elected in 1956 and since then, served in many leadership posts in the senate. The relationship between Senator Marchi and the College is long-standing and profound. As a proponent of higher education in his borough, Marchi once said that “writing the legislation in the 1970s to make the College of Staten Island a senior college within the CUNY system is one of the accomplishments of which I am most proud.” As the Staten Island Advance noted, “Without Marchi, it’s doubtful that CSI itself would exist.” Senator Marchi secured the College’s 204-acre campus at Willowbrook. Throughout the years, Senator Marchi advocated for state dollars to improve the College’s services, expand course offerings, and conduct vital research. He left to the College his collection of papers that are now preserved in the John J. Marchi Archives. CSI awarded Senator Marchi an honorary doctor of laws degree at its 2006 Commencement exercises.
The announcement of Senator Marchi’s retirement prompted the College of Staten Island to honor his service. Befitting the Senator’s life work and intellectual interests, on November 29, 2006, CSI renamed the building that houses the Department of Political Science, Economics, and Philosophy, John J. Marchi Hall. The dedication initiated an all-day examination and celebration of the Senator’s vast contributions to the College and the community. The morning began with a program of testimonials from then President Marlene Springer, CSI President Emeritus Edmond Volpe, Professor Emeritus Daniel Kramer, and Cardinal Edward Egan, the archbishop of New York, who referenced Senator Marchi as “Staten Island’s first citizen.” The ceremony was highlighted by a musical tribute to the Senator composed by Assistant Professor David Keberle. Learning of the news of the dedication, former Governor Mario Cuomo remarked, “He deserves it, that’s for sure. He’s won the respect of both sides of the aisle, without a question.”
OCTOBER 2006 U.S. Congressman Vito Fossella announces a six-year $3.6 million federal grant to CSI’s Discovery Institute to provide support, training, and tutoring assistance to struggling students and their teachers in a half-dozen schools.
Retired English Professor Michael Shugrue brings the Philharmonic Quintet of New York, a chamber subset made up of NY Philharmonic members to Center for the Arts. The concert was made free to nearly 900 guests due to Dr. Shugrue’s generosity.
One moderator, Professor Jeffrey Kroessler, observed, “Senator Marchi picked issues that were not tangential or parochial. He got involved with issues that he knew had legs-that were of genuine importance.” Following the conference, the Senator and his wife, Maria Luisa, were honored at a gala celebration at the Hilton Garden Inn of Staten Island. Proceeds from the evening will support CSI’s newly established endowed position, the Senator John J. Marchi Visiting Scholar in Public Affairs. The position will bring to the College researchers and practitioners with experience in fields such as transportation, housing, and social services that are relevant to the Borough’s public policy concerns.
NOVEMBER 2006 The CSI Women’s Center is named in honor of Bertha Harris, who taught in the Humanities Division of Richmond College from 1972 to 1977. Her third novel has the following dedication: “Lover is for my students, past and present, in the Women’s Studies Program at Richmond College, CUNY”
The daughters of the late Florence Ucelli join the recipient of the scholarship named in her honor at the Donor Scholarship Reception at President Springer’s home.
Over 400 guests heard remarks and reminiscences from distinguished leaders who came to offer tribute to the Senator. Speakers included: former Mayors Edward Koch and David Dinkins, U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, Congressman Anthony Weiner, New York’s Vice Consul General of Italy Giovanni Favilli, and former chair of the New York State Council on the Arts, the late Kitty Carlisle Hart. Senator Schumer put John Marchi’s career in historical perspective. “Senator Marchi,” Schumer said, “personified the ‘Greatest Generation.’ From the day he was elected to the day he retired, he never lost his integrity.” In summation of his career, former Mayor Dinkins remarked, “I know of no other elected official who is as highly regarded as Senator John J. Marchi.” That evening, Senator Marchi’s successor, Senator-elect Andrew Lanza, recognized the example Marchi set. “In all his successes, his battles and fights, he’s always brought dignity and grace, and I pray that I will be able to emulate that.... He’s Staten Island’s original champion.”
CSI FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT / ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY
The day continued with a conference sponsored by CSI’s Center for the Study of Staten Island called, “On the Merits: The Distinguished Career of John J. Marchi.” A notable group of academics, public servants, and journalists, many of whom had worked with the Senator in the past, discussed the defining events of Marchi’s career in the context of the transformation of New York State and Staten Island over the last half-century.

RICHMOND COUNTY SAVINGS FOUNDATION LITERACY TRAINING CENTER
Thanks to a $45,000 grant from the Richmond County Savings Foundation (RCSF), the College of Staten Island now has vastly improved tools to spread literacy throughout Staten Island. The generous grant has funded the development of a state-of-the art, comprehensive literacy clinic/resource center, named the Richmond County Savings Foundation Literacy Training Center. The Center will provide comprehensive facilities for present educators seeking certification, equip future educators with the most sophisticated literacy training, and provide local pre-K to 12 students with an unparalleled learning environment.
Cesar Claro, Executive Director of the Richmond County Savings Foundation, explains the importance of the Center, “We acknowledge that literacy proficiency provides the essential foundation for learning in all subject areas. The clinic will provide teacher candidate students with technologically advanced resources for teaching literacy.” Underscoring his foundation’s commitment to CSI, Claro adds, “Richmond County Savings Foundation is proud to assist the College of Staten Island in their efforts to make integrating technology and education a priority through several recent projects: the RCSF Science Teacher Training Center and the RCSF Mathematics Teacher Training Center.” The Center’s most significant potential impact will lie in providing crucial resources to students in the early stages of elementary education that will have a profound impact on literacy across subject areas. While the College envisions the Center to serve readers and writers in the community who have underperformed, relative to national standards, it will also serve CSI’s teacher candidates well in providing them with the experience, exemplary context, and certification for

teaching literacy to pre-K to 12 students. The Center has been equipped with a range of print sources for pre-K to 12 learners, with a particular emphasis on content-area texts. It also enhances undergraduate and graduate learning opportunities in all of the College’s programs (early childhood, childhood, adolescence, and special education) and provides the opportunity for faculty research and community outreach. In choosing materials, the Center selected engaging and authentic reading sources (rather than curriculum materials) to promote lifelong learning. In addition, in keeping with the latest technology, the Center is equipped with computers and resources to support the technological skills for reading, interpreting, and sharing knowledge. The electronic text sources for pre-K to 12 participants have been selected carefully so that they reflect fully and provide for the diversity of the local demographic profile, with attention to race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, special needs, and language. The Center has placed a particular emphasis on choosing sources for the challenged reader to include highinterest/high-level content written for developing reading levels. A comprehensive

collection of sources with this focus is invaluable to our students, teachers, and the community. The new Center will serve as a place to run clinics to support students of all levels in the community, as part of coursework held after school, and for our teacher candidates to borrow resources for use in their respective fields. Many members of CSI’s diverse student body of more than 12,500 students will take advantage of the Center’s materials, including the College’s graduate-level students, in their research and project development. Over 1,200 students participating in the Education curriculum will have access to the stateof-the-art resources, approximately 100 teachers annually will use the Center to receive their respective certifications, and 15 CSI faculty members will utilize the new Center as an outlet for their literacyrelated research interests. Currently, CSI faculty, led by Professor Liquing Tao, are formally reaching out to dozens of schools serving local pre-K to 12 students for participation commitments.
Sandra Gambetti, Assistant Professor of History at CSI, has been very busy lately, not only trying to gain insight into the origins of 12 plaster casts of the Parthenon’s western frieze that now belong to the College, but, along with Craig Manister from the Department of Performing and Creative Arts, is also overseeing their restoration so that students, staff, and visitors to CSI may enjoy them, and learn from them. Thus far, one cast has been completely restored, and another four are undergoing renovation. Gambetti reports that the casts were made in Boston by the P.P. Caproni & Brother company some time between 1892 and 1927. Although she states that it is difficult to trace the exact origins of the casts, Gambetti theorizes that they might be the result of a combination of two other molds—those recreated from original molds commissioned by Lord Elgin in 1802, which were stored at the British Museum, and another set, the so-called Merlin molds, which were created in 1872. The resulting casts corrected flaws and faults to portray a more accurate depiction of the original frieze.
Gambetti is also investigating how the Caproni factory gained access to the molds so that it could produce the casts, but presently, she notes that she can only speculate on this because the factory’s archives were destroyed many years ago. According to Gambetti, the British Museum’s formatore (the person responsible for the Museum’s molds), Domenico Brucciani, whom the Museum allowed to hold most of its molds in his place of residence, eventually started his own company. After his death in 1880, his company continued, and it is possible that the founder of the Caproni factory gained access to them as he traveled throughout Europe in search of molds for his company. As for the more recent history of the casts, Gambetti discovered that they originally belonged to the Staten Island Academy, acquired through a private donation. The Academy displayed the casts in the main hall of the institution’s library. In the early 1970s, the Academy moved from its original location in St. George, leaving the casts in an abandoned building that was eventually scheduled for demolition. Pat Passlof and Arthur Levine, professors
at (what was then) Richmond College, which was located across the street from the Academy, came to the casts’ rescue, storing them in an unused room until 1994, when they moved to the present-day CSI campus, and the Atrium of the Center for the Arts (CFA).
As work continues on four of the 12 casts, Gambetti hopes that funding will be found to restore the remaining seven casts so that they may be displayed in their proper order in the CFA, and serve as touchstones for students of classical and Greek history.

were created with A Very Special Place, the Center for Independent Living, the Seaman’s Society, and the New York Foundling. The ticket subsidy project for the 2006-2007 season was made possible through the generosity of the Richmond County Savings Foundation, Time Warner Cable, and the Staten Island Rotary Foundation.
Since its inception in 1997, the Center for the Arts (CFA) has grown into a nearly $1.2M operation for the Staten Island community and its neighbors. The CFA hosts an annual, multidisciplinary performing arts series, from SeptemberMay, designed to engage a diverse audience. Each year, the CFA aims to present a rich mix of artists and entertainers from Staten Island, the U.S., and abroad. To date, the CFA has presented 270 artists and artist groups with audiences totaling 110,000. The 20062007 Performing Arts Series consisted of 19 shows with a total audience figure of
nearly 10,000, featuring artist companies from China, England, Ireland, Canada, the U.S., and metropolitan New York. This season provided opportunities for local artists to be showcased, including the Staten Island Ballet and the premiere of SunDog Theatre at the CFA with the Family Series performance, Charlotte’s Web.
In April 2007, Jeanette Vuocolo was appointed Director of the CFA. She has created projects and programs that celebrate new work by innovative artists for the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the New York Foundation for the Arts, among others. Her plans for 2007-2008
will bring a theme of “Island Culture,” for a season of thoughtful and challenging performances and special projects for children and adults, rooted in creativity and community. Major funders of the Center for the Arts include the Richmond County Savings Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York (made possible by an anonymous donor), the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Senator John J. Marchi, Time Warner Cable, and the Staten Island Rotary Foundation. In addition, the CFA proudly recognizes the support from its growing membership and playbill advertisers.
In an effort to advance community outreach, this year the CFA formalized a ticket subsidy distribution program that enables disadvantaged borough residents the opportunity to attend the CFA performances at no cost. Partnerships

The Center for the Study of Staten Island, Staten Island Project (CSI-SIP) brings to bear faculty research and expertise on the borough’s public policy challenges, thereby deepening the connection between the College and the community. Many members of the College faculty are at work on research projects that will yield insights about Staten Island, better equipping residents and policymakers with the information they need to make informed decisions about the future of the borough. One of the Center’s most ambitious projects is the Staten Island Social Capital Community Benchmark Study. With the generous support of the Staten Island Foundation, nearly 1,000 Staten Islanders were polled about their personal and social attitudes and behavior. The results provide a rich and intimate portrait of borough residents. The poll asked questions such as “Do you trust your neighbors?” “How often do attend community meetings?” and “How would you rate your community?” Since this same survey has been administered in cities across the country, “benchmarks” are available to compare Staten Island’s results against those of other communities and against national averages.
The results of the survey were the subject of the Center’s April 2007 policy conference, Building Community on Staten Island in the 21st Century. Leaders from the not-for-profit and civic sectors, academic researchers, and the College community gathered to learn about the efforts in other parts of the country to strengthen community ties. Most recently, the Center has been involved with a “learning circle” of scholars and community leaders seeking to develop practical applications that strengthen community bonds. The connection between housing and transportation systems will be the subject of the Center’s fourth annual policy conference in 2008. A good portion of the day will be devoted to a discussion of the results of a forthcoming Center working paper that analyzes affordable housing policy on Staten Island. This has received support from State Senator Diane Savino, Assemblyman Michael Cusick, and the late Assemblyman John Lavelle. Other Center projects include a sociological study of the Staten Island Ferry led by Assistant Professors Jeffery Bussolini and Ananya Mukherjea of the Education Department that examines
various dimensions of this important borough institution, including the behavior of commuters, staff, and tourists. The health of the Arthur Kill, the tidal straight separating Staten Island from New Jersey, is the subject of the Center project led by Associate Professor William Wallace of the Biology Department examining the composition of metal contaminants in the water. Both projects are supported by grants from State Senator Andrew Lanza. In the field of teacher education, a Centerfunded initiative will sharpen the research skills of aspiring teachers in the College’s undergraduate program by involving them in data collection and analysis of Staten Island schools.

STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS
In the fall of 2001, CSI’s Search for Education and Knowledge (SEEK) Program collaborated with the community in an effort to offer academic assistance to at-risk intermediate school children, creating a pilot project called Strategies for Success. Today, the program continues to thrive, working to promote the development and application of effective learning strategies and study skills essential to academic success within the population of economically disadvantaged college students at CSI, as well as for children at IS 49 and PS 57, both Title 1 public schools located in Stapleton. Tutors/mentors come from the SEEK program at CSI, which was designed for students who have the potential to excel in college, but may need academic support
and/or financial assistance. The SEEK Program has enrolled nearly 230,000 low-income students since its inception forty years ago. Without the unique support and guidance offered by SEEK, most of these students would not have had the opportunity to earn a college degree. Gloria Garcia, SEEK Program Director notes, “The Strategies for Success Program affords SEEK students the opportunity to have a connection with the world of work, and helps them clarify their career paths.” The 2006-2007 fiscal year marks the end of support from The Staten Island Foundation for Strategies for Success. The foundation has been the lead sponsor since its inception, granting a total of $265,000. Elizabeth Dubovsky, Executive Director of The Staten Island Foundation
has been involved since the program’s start. “Since foundations are only as successful as the organizations they fund, helping CSI’s Strategies for Success Program has been a win all around. Local elementary and intermediate school children have been helped by CSI students who have in turn benefited from helping these children and having their own study skills reinforced. The children have college student models and mentors and some of the college students have been motivated to pursue teaching and social work as careers. The college has hit a home run for disadvantaged young people and The Staten Island Foundation is pleased to have helped.”
to learning and access the supports they need to graduate. “We know that having a connection to a positive role model early in life is a critical asset, and that’s why Strategies for Success resonated with us,” says Ms. O’Neal-Dunham.
The program will continue in both IS 49 and PS 57 with funding this fiscal year for fall 2007 from the United Way of New York City, JP Morgan Chase, the Robert Bowne Foundation, Experian, and the JCC Beacon Program through the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development. Kathryn O’Neal-Dunham, Director of Grant Making at the United Way, recognized the importance of this project as the United Way of New York City is committed to helping young people overcome barriers

their movement through cell membranes. While at Weizmann, Dr. Naider worked closely with acclaimed chemist Ephraim Katzir, one of the founding scientists of the Institute, who in subsequent years became the fourth president of Israel. Naider’s career path was clearly moving toward working for a major company as a chemical engineer; however, he chose to pursue a career as an educator. Naider said, “I decided that my first love was the quest for knowledge and sharing that quest with young minds. So, I chose academia where I would have the freedom to pursue those goals.”
Fred Naider, Leonard and Esther Kurtz Term Professor and CUNY Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, has had an illustrious career for more than 30 years as a CSI faculty member. Professor Naider combines the qualities of an extraordinary researcher and teacher, and remains one in a handful of scientists who has had continual funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for over 30 years. Naider is a chemist by training who has spent the best part of his distinguished career
studying peptides, a family of molecules formed by linking amino acids in a certain order. Peptides are ubiquitous in biological systems and are currently used in the manufacturing of drugs. His lab at CSI builds “designer” peptides, which he supplies to research labs around the world. In addition to his work in the United States, Naider spent many years working at Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science. His research there focused on biological projects, with a specialty in peptide interactions with cells and

Professor Naider remains honored by the longtime support of the Kurtz family and the Kurtz Foundation through the Leonard and Esther Kurtz Term Professorship. His relationship with the family transcends many years. After he secured his bachelor of science and master of science degrees from Cornell University in 1966, Naider continued on to Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn for further graduate studies. While there, he worked under Dr. Murray Goodman, a renowned polymer/peptide chemist. During this time, Dr. Leonard Kurtz was an important
sponsor of Dr. Goodman’s research. When Dr. Goodman left Polytechnic in 1970, Naider maintained his working relationship with Dr. Kurtz. According to Professor Naider, Dr. Kurtz was originally a board-certified radiologist. He left this profession to serve as president of a medical product business, Deknatel Inc. Deknatel produced a number of innovative products, one of which was a combination of synthetic Dacron and Teflon into a surgical suture that would pull smoothly through tissue. Eventually Pfizer Inc. acquired Deknatel and promoted its important medical products. Dr. Kurtz and his sons then concentrated their energies on a new venture, BioResearch Inc., a research and development company. Upon Leonard Kurtz’s death in 1991, his son Dr. Robert Kurtz took control of BioResearch Inc. and continued the family tradition of supporting Dr. Naider’s work through the Leonard Kurtz - Ester Kurtz Term Professorship at CSI, which was established in 2002. Since then, the professorship has provided continuous funding in support of the innovative polymer and biopolymer chemistry programs at CSI.

A DEDICATION TO EDMOND L. VOLPE
“If you seek Edmond Volpe’s monument, just look around,” said Norma D’Arrigo, at the dedication of the Edmond L. Volpe Rotunda in the College of Staten Island Library. D’Arrigo, former President Emerita of the Friends of CSI, added, “I am proud to have been a founding member of the Friends…but I have no illusions. We were the Friends…but Ed Volpe is its premier friend…He has touched us all, and we are all better for his friendship.” Her remarks were part of a dedication ceremony on March 11, 2007 that formally recognized Dr. Volpe’s 20 years of service to the College as President, and 40
years as faculty member and administrator at The City University of New York, service highlighted by the consolidation of CSI’s predecessor institutions, Staten Island Community College and Richmond College. Dr. Marlene Springer, Volpe’s successor, remarked, “I was especially pleased to reap the benefits of all his hard work. I was following in the footsteps of a very fine leader. He challenged those who said it couldn’t be done and kept his eye on the goal. Dr. Volpe has been a tireless and positive force for CSI.” The program continued with a cocktail reception in the Rotunda, where a portrait
of Dr. Volpe was unveiled next to a plaque that reads, “In honor of the first president of the College of Staten Island and in recognition of his outstanding and enduring legacy.” For years, Volpe engaged in complex and delicate negotiations that led to the crowning achievement of his presidency, the completion of the new, unified campus. For 15 years, in a complicated regulatory environment with restricted budgets, Dr. Volpe fought to secure a facility fitting for the college that he, his faculty, and administrative colleagues had created. Volpe enlisted a coterie of educational, political, and community leaders to work as partners in advancing this ambitious project. There is no doubt, that he and former State Senator John J. Marchi are the two individuals who are largely responsible for securing the state-of-the-art, 204-acre campus that the community enjoys today. At the groundbreaking, then Governor Cuomo announced that the CSI campus would be the largest single-phase construction project in the history of the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York. The new campus was dedicated on October 14, 1993.

The CSI softball team wins the CUNYAC championship with a 3-1 victory over visiting defending champion Hunter College.
Under Dr. Volpe’s stewardship, the Center for International Service was born, with its faculty and student international exchange programs, and programs of study abroad for undergraduates. Dr. Volpe honored Soviet dissident Yuri Orlov, welcomed one of the earliest delegations of educators from the People’s Republic of China, and oversaw the arrival of the first group of foreign students from Nigeria in 1979. The Staten Island Advance noted with its coverage of the naming of the Edmond L. Volpe Rotunda, “Almost everything on the Willowbrook campus can be attributed to the vision of Volpe.”
On Thursday, May 10, 2007 the CSI Foundation sponsored its first-ever Planned Giving Luncheon, entitled “Leaving a Lasting Legacy.” The event was held at CSI’s Park Café as a result of an overwhelming demand exhibited by the response of over 100 CSI alumni and friends during the year. Guests participated in an interactive luncheon, which was not only informative and engaging, but provided first-hand knowledge on how CSI donors can leave their lasting legacy at CSI. Mr. Stephen Imperato, Future Funds (the CUNY-appointed planned giving consultants), presented donor vehicles including wills/bequests, charitable gift annuities, gifts of real estate, and much more. “There are so many people who want to give back to CSI by making a very significant gift, but feel they can’t unless they have a large amount of disposable cash. This is a misconception,” said Imperato. “There are planned giving techniques that can help CSI supporters at any giving level. They can make their legacy gift and improve their own financial or tax situation in the process.”
The CSI Alumni Association holds an evening of relaxation, fun, and spa treatments at Pilo Arts in Brooklyn.
DISCOVERY INSTITUTE In a powerful testament, former CSI Professor Dure Jo Gillikin shared her personal motivation for establishing CSI’s first ever Charitable Gift Annuity. “My gift to CSI will benefit the newly established Bertha Harris Women’s Center and its patrons. I sincerely hope that many of you will find a reason to make a similar commitment.” Planned giving is a unique, and mutually beneficial way to engage in philanthropy. While a donor’s generosity impacts generations of CSI students, one can also secure his or her family’s well-being. Plans are underway for a second luncheon in spring 2008.
Teachers have the enviable, yet daunting, task of stimulating the minds of their students and imparting knowledge. However, by the time they prepare curriculum, spend long days in the classroom, and then go home to grade papers, they often find little time to stay on top of the latest teaching innovations and methods. In an effort to alleviate this problem, particularly in regard to technology for classroom use, CSI’s Discovery Institute hosted its Second Annual Summer Technology Conference for Middle School Mathematics Teachers last August.
and more important in the teaching of mathematics and science, especially at the middle school level where teachers are not as much exposed to technology as at the high school level.” She adds that the Conference also gives teachers from different parts of the country and other areas of the world a chance to get together and learn from nationally recognized educators. The Conference, modeled after the Mathematics, Science, and Technology Conference for high school teachers at Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, welcomed 70 participants and leaders from 16 states and six countries. Besides staying on top of their game as teachers, participants were able to earn graduate credit from The City University of New York (CUNY) and Webster University in St. Louis.
Irina Lyublinskaya, Director of the Discovery Institute, explains the objectives of the Conference, “The objectives are to introduce teachers to the innovative use of technology. As you know, applications change and technology becomes more

We are delighted that Dr. Cea has been elected the fifth president of the Friends, and look forward to expanding these relationships even further.” “Our mission has always been to explore ways to acquaint our Staten Island community with the life-enriching educational and cultural resources that CSI has to offer,” Dr. Cea said. “I will see that we continue with this mission and in addition, strengthen our support by engaging the interest of other community leaders to join in our efforts.”
Dr. Christine Cea of Emerson Hill was elected president of the Friends of CSI, an association of community members dedicated to helping the College of Staten Island realize its goals and educational mission.
This year, the Friends of CSI held its annual literary brunch, featuring CSI faculty member and author, Sylvia Kahan, who read excerpts from her novel Music’s Modern Muse. In addition, the Friends of CSI collectively donated a number of children’s books to the Children’s Center on campus in December 2006.
“The College has long been grateful for the efforts of the Friends of CSI,” said Dr. Marlene Springer, the former College president. “For over 35 years, their events have been instrumental in developing CSI’s

After seven years as the CSI Alumni Association (CSIAA) president, Richard Prinzi ’93, resigned from his position to become a member of the board of directors of the CSI Foundation. Prinzi, who had been president since 2000, and an Association board member since 1995, reflects on his tenure as CSIAA president as “a wonderful experience. I got to work with some very talented individuals. I took the Alumni Association from a grassroots, very small, one part-time employee organization

A TRIBUTE TO PRESIDENT MARLENE SPRINGER
CSI FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT / ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY
Dr. Marlene Springer served as President of CSI from 1994 to 2007. In her 13 years of leadership, Dr. Springer advanced campus technology, established public-private partnerships, initiated an international distance education program, developed an international high school on campus, increased the College’s enrollment to record levels, and strengthened academic standards. She made CSI a recognized leader locally, nationally, and internationally. Former provost Dr. Mirella Affron remembers the beginning of her tenure as a “very propitious moment” that came with a new campus, new opportunities for hiring, and an ethos of collegial vitality. President Springer oversaw the replenishment of the faculty due to retirements and the addition of new faculty lines: over 57% of CSI’s faculty were appointed between 1994 and 2006. Over the years, Dr. Springer maintained a beautiful campus under the considerable challenges of placing 21st-century demands atop an 85-year-old infrastructure. At her urging, The City University of New York (CUNY) last year approved the process through which the College is now engaged
in developing a new Facilities Master Plan. Through this plan, CSI now has the opportunity to address its considerable growth since the original Master Plan of 1986, and to develop facilities to better serve the changing needs of its students. Also, due largely to Dr. Springer’s vision, preparations for adding residence halls to the campus are also underway. This dynamic addition will transform campus life, provide new options to students who ordinarily would not have attended CSI in the past, and enrich and further diversify the campus community. Dr. Springer is sought after internationally for her perspectives on women’s leadership, and was selected as one of only four U.S. delegates to the Annual International Forum of Female Presidents in Higher Education in Beijing; she is also one of only seven U.S. college presidents who founded The Oxford Conclave on Global Ethics. The Conclave, at Oxford’s historic Balliol College, involves intense collaborative study of global trends such as population growth, resource management, technological change, knowledge development, economic integration, conflict patterns, and
HIGHLIGHTS FROM PRESIDENT MARLENE SPRINGER’S TENURE The CSI Honors College was founded in the fall of 1997. In 2002, CSI joined the CUNY Honors College. Each year the applicant pool has grown larger and academically stronger.
In 2004, CSI inaugurated its Center for Engineered Polymeric Materials (CePM), funded by NYSTAR with a five-year $2.5 million grant. CSI was one of two distinguished colleges in New York State to receive the grant.
In 2005, CSI inaugurated the CSI High School for International Studies in partnership with the Asia Society and the NYC Department of Education, with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The school continues to draw the greatest number of applications of any new small high school in New York City.
It is not surprising, then, that Dr. Springer’s presidential tenure at CSI was also marked by a commitment to expanding the international programming of the College, with the goal of preparing students to appreciate the pluralism of U.S. society and to thoughtfully communicate and contribute in a global economy. Under her leadership, CSI’s Center for International Service grew such that in 2006, 672 students were sponsored to study abroad, and CSI now maintains 25 active international partnerships worldwide.
From the stage, Deputy Borough President Edward Burke remarked, “The legacy President Springer has left is truly remarkable, and it is a fitting tribute that this concert hall be named in her honor. She has brought the College into the 21st century, literally and technologically. Staten Island is a better place because of Dr. Springer, and her legacy is going to last in the hearts and minds of all who came to know her.”

institutional governance, and considers their implications for higher education.
When President Springer announced her retirement, the Staten Island and CSI communities gathered several times to mark her commitment and dedication to this borough and its residents. The final event celebrating her tenure took place on August 16, 2007, when the Concert Hall in CSI’s Center for the Arts was officially renamed the “Springer Concert Hall.” The dedication was made possible through a generous grant in Dr. Springer’s honor by Borough President James P. Molinaro.
The Verrazano School was piloted in spring 2007, offering high-achieving students the opportunity to be part of a dynamic, academically motivated learning community while enjoying the benefits of a comprehensive public institution within CUNY.
Over the past 13 years, CSI has revised its general education requirements and added bachelor’s degrees in social work and information systems; a bioinformatics option to the biology bachelor’s degree; master’s degrees in biology, history, adult health nursing, and business management; and, with the CUNY Graduate Center, doctorates in physical therapy and nursing.
In 2007, a new $700,000 supercomputer, named Athena for the Greek goddess of wisdom, was funded by CUNY and came to the CSI campus at no cost. The supercomputer is several times more powerful than any computer system within the CUNY campuses, giving CSI computational power to perform world-class research.
