College of Staten Island Foundation

Annual Report 2007-2008

Message from the President Greetings! I am delighted to introduce the 2007-2008 Annual Report from the College of Staten Island Foundation. The Foundation plays a crucial role in supporting our College and providing important funding for scholarships and overall institutional advancement. In my first full year as CSI President, I am honored that the Foundation’s board members have given so much of their time and energy to enhance our school. Their good work has paid off; CSI is on a sharp upward swing. Our enrollment has reached the highest level in CSI’s history, as more and more students are attracted by the world-class quality of our faculty and curricula, as well as the affordability of our tuition. Our entering baccalaureate students boast high school grade point averages and standardized test results comparable to any sister school in The City University of New York system, while our graduate programs, including doctoral programs in conjunction with the CUNY Graduate Center, have drawn hundreds of outstanding students. CSI is building on this success, quite literally, as we work to finalize funding that will allow us to begin construction of on-campus residence halls for 600 students, staff, and faculty. These residence halls will be transformative, providing students from Staten Island and beyond with the opportunity to live on our beautiful and green campus, yet be in the midst of the world’s greatest metropolitan region. As our growth accelerates, our Master Plan and Strategic Plan will plot a sustainable and intelligent map to the future. Certainly, part of that future will include our supercomputer. No ordinary computational machine, the CSI supercomputer, when fully operational, will make CSI home to one of the most powerful computational centers in academia. These achievements, and many others, have drawn the support of the Staten Island community; in the past year alone, Staten Island’s elected officials have secured more than $42 million in capital funding for the College to advance a broad range of projects that enhance the educational experience at CSI. For this we are immensely thankful, not only on behalf of our present faculty and students, but for future generations of the CSI community. This is an exciting time to be part of the CSI family, and as we take great pride in the achievements of the past year, we look forward with immense confidence to the future. Our prospects have never been brighter, and we look forward to the continual advancement of our institution and the people it serves.

Roads to Success The College of Staten Island offers exceptional students a number of options to enhance their college experience, and become more competitive when they enter the job market. The Macaulay Honors College, The Verrazano School, and the CUNY Teacher Academy are just three of the roads to success that CSI offers to select scholars.

MACAULAY HONORS COLLEGE University Scholars at the College of Staten Island are highly motivated students enrolled in the Macaulay Honors College—a special honors curriculum of innovative and challenging courses. Macaulay Honors College classes of 20 or fewer students feature field trips as well as independent and collaborative research, and other creative activities, which students may present at undergraduate research conferences. In recent years Macaulay Honors College classes have visited such destinations as West Point, the National Museum of the American Indian, and the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art. At CSI, Macaulay Honors seminars are taught by some of CSI’s prominent faculty. CSI’s Macaulay Honors College staff also includes a professional counselor who offers guidance

CSI has been working to enhance the scientific computing power of CUNY to boost the school’s research, economic development, and teaching activities. With $6.5 million passed by the state and guided by our state legislative team, Senators Andrew Lanza and Diane Savino, and Assembly Members Michael Cusick, Matthew Titone, Janele Hyer-Spencer, and Lou Tobacco; $1 million secured by Borough President Molinaro; and $500,000 by Councilman James Oddo, the school has created a High-Performance Computational Science Center. The enhanced computing power will allow greater numbers of students at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral levels the opportunity to participate in research projects involving the use of advanced computing equipment, thereby preparing them for careers in scientific research for the 21st century. 8

The goal of these models is to be able to predict the flow conditions and the operational guidelines that will minimize traffic delay caused by the toll collection process. Further research is focused on the impact of land use and development patterns on traffic flow and congestion. “The facility will provide CUNY researchers and staff with the computational resources to solve world-class problems in modeling and simulation, and to advance science in general,” said CSI President Dr. Tomás D. Morales. “It will also allow us to enhance the quality of our education experience for students.” President Morales noted that the computer and its facilities are still “in their infancy,” but that, with additional The CSI High-Performance Computational Science Center is an integral part of CUNY’s Decade of Science, renewing the University’s commitment to strengthening science, math, technology, and engineering fields by advancing science at the highest levels, training students to teach in these areas, and encouraging young people, particularly women and minorities, to study in these disciplines.

Dr. Michael Kress, Vice President for Technology Systems, added that the Center’s current capacity exceeds the capacity of the supercomputers at Columbia and New York University. The current computational power is an extraordinary leap forward for CUNY, allowing researchers to perform modeling simulations in a day that previously took a month.

ARTISTIC PERFORMANCES Dr. Michael Shugrue has continuously funded a number of top-rate artistic performances, free of charge to the general public. This year, as a result of his tremendous generosity, CSI students and the community were privileged to watch the New York Philharmonic Brass Ensemble, the Canaan Chamber Ensemble, and the Spectrum Concerts Berlin. These events, in particular the NY Philharmonic, continue to draw some of the largest audiences in the history of the Center for the Arts at CSI.

GOVERNMENT FUNDING Thanks to the incomparable work of Staten Island’s elected officials, the College of Staten Island has obtained more than $42 million in state and city aid to help fund capital improvements, such as a campus-wide security system, needed upgrades to our Sports and Recreation Center, and a High-Performance Computational Science Center that will be among the most powerful campus-based computers in the United States. Funding will also support programmatic initiatives, including CSI’s Staten Island Breast Cancer Research Initiative, a multidisciplinary approach aimed at making a positive impact on breast cancer incidence and mortality, which received $130,000 in funding. CSI acknowledges the support from State Senators Andrew Lanza and Diane Savino; Assembly Members Michael Cusick, Matthew Titone, Janele Hyer-Spencer, and Lou Tobacco; Borough President James Molinaro; City Council Speaker Christine Quinn; and Council Members James Oddo, Michael McMahon, and Vincent Ignizio.

We’re going to be doing more with early advising and ongoing mentoring, including some peer mentoring, as well as faculty mentoring, because we know from experience that hooking the students in with faculty and students who have been successful in the program is really important.” Simmons also wants to expand the amount of money available for STEAM scholarships. In tandem with the CSI Foundation, Simmons states that she hopes to find “some private or corporate donors and other sources of money so that we can help our students financially. We’re also talking about having extracurricular activities that will happen on campus periodically throughout the year—speakers, events—that introduce students to broader areas of science.” 21

As CSI embarks on the restoration, display, and enriched educational experience that these casts offer, the College received a grant in the amount of $65,000 from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. This generous gift enabled CSI to move forward with the completion of the repair and restoration of the casts, and create a permanent photography exhibit of the Parthenon Frieze. 26

Telling the CSI Story 101 With additional funding from the CUNY Compact Budget, the College of Staten Island successfully completed the first year of its three-year marketing communications plan, designed to improve the perception of CSI as a first-choice college destination.

The College used print, outdoor, and Web creatives to feature faculty research, distinguished alumni, and degrees offered, specifically master’s and doctoral degrees. CSI expanded its television presence by creating interactive commercials on Time Warner Cable. The three-month interactive campaign resulted in nearly 6,000 households using their cable remotes to request a free recruitment DVD. The College has supported all of these initiatives with a comprehensive online presence, from multimedia Websites to direct mail and email campaigns, with the most intriguing and successful campaigns underscoring the shifting marketplace, placing a higher premium on multimedia and measurability. The electronic communications agenda includes a prominent presence on YouTube, MySpace, and Facebook, as well as direct mail campaigns, and a revamping of the College’s Website. Through this campaign and future media strategies, the College of Staten Island hopes to showcase its exemplary students, world-class faculty, and state-of-the-art facilities for prospective students on Staten Island and around the world.

On Monday, March 10, 2008, the College of Staten Island paid tribute to Dr. Edmond Volpe, who passed away last December at age 85. The memorial featured a concert by The Arden Trio, made possible through the generosity of Dr. Michael Shugrue, as well as remarks by Dr. Theodore Gross, President Emeritus of Roosevelt College and a friend and former colleague of Dr. Volpe’s at The City College of New York/CUNY. Born in New Haven, Connecticut, Dr. Volpe received a bachelor’s degree at the University of Michigan and his master’s and doctorate from Columbia University. He joined the faculty of The City College of New York in 1954. In 1960-1961, he was a Fulbright Professor to France. A Professor of English and American literature, he was elected Chair of The City College Department of English and served from 1964 to 1970. During his teaching career, Dr. Volpe earned an international reputation for his scholarship on William Faulkner. His critical study of Faulkner’s novels, A Reader’s Guide to William Faulkner (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1964), has remained in print for more than 40 years. It was reissued by Syracuse University Press in 2003, and in 2004 Syracuse also published A Reader’s Guide to William Faulkner: The Short Stories. In 1974, Dr. Volpe was appointed President of Richmond College of The City University of New York. An upper-division institution, Richmond offered junior, senior, and graduate work. In 1976, as a result of the New York City fiscal crisis, Richmond College and Staten Island Community College were merged as the College of Staten Island. Dr. Volpe was appointed as its first President and guided the unification of the two institutions into a single fouryear college. During his 20 years as President, Dr. Volpe was appointed to numerous University and national committees. He represented The City University in delegations of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities to explore and establish exchange agreements with universities in China, Egypt, Italy, Korea, the Soviet Union, and elsewhere. In New York City, he 32

was a member of the Mayor’s Committee on Community Relations.

Edmond L. Volpe, PhD CSI President Emeritus January 16, 1922 to December 14, 2007 From the very start of their life on Staten Island, Dr. Volpe and his wife Rose took an active interest in the community and its organizations. Rose Volpe nurtured the Friends of the College of Staten Island. It was she who introduced the popular International Festival that brought to the campus the cultures of the myriad ethnic groups of the borough. Together, Dr. Volpe and his wife encouraged extracurricular music and theater programs and exhibitions that enhanced the cultural life of the College and beyond. A respected educational and civic leader on Staten Island, Dr. Volpe was honored over the years by many organizations. Among these were the United Jewish Appeal, the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, the Italian Club of Staten Island, the New York Urban League, the American Committee on Italian Migration, and the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art. Dr. Volpe retired in 1994. He continued to write and publish. Recent works, the fruit of his long and extensive experience in higher education, are Creating a College (2000) and The Comprehensive College: Heading Toward a New Direction in Higher Education (2001). In his remarks at the memorial, Dr. Gross stated, “Ed Volpe did so much for this College and Staten Island. He unified two separate campuses; he brought international programs to the College; he built this magnificent campus; he developed countless programs that helped to build the College of Staten Island as one of the senior campuses of The City University of New York. His achievements were truly extraordinary.” Later in his remarks, Gross paid tribute to the type of person Dr. Volpe was, echoing the sentiments of many of the attendees, “Ed may be gone, but he’ll be in our individual memories as long as we live. The friend and colleague I’ll remember is a leader of great strength, stability, keen intelligence, political savvy, moral clarity, and boundless compassion. Ed was so strong, I couldn’t imagine he would ever die. Perhaps he hasn’t, after all; perhaps he’s still alive in our minds and therefore still alive for each of us.”
