FOUNDATION Securing philanthropic support for CSI to reach its highest level of academic excellence


JULY 1, 2008 TO JUNE 30, 2009

Message From The President Greetings! It is my pleasure as the President of the College of Staten Island to introduce the CSI Foundation Fiscal Year 2009 Annual Report. The many great strides the College has made in the past year are made possible through the work of the Foundation, its dedicated Board members, and all of our generous donors. This past spring marked the largest graduating class in CSI’s history. Our graduates are being hired by prestigious firms and going to some of the finest graduate schools in the country. Our commitment to providing a world-class education with a renowned faculty places CSI as a true leader among the sister schools of The City University of New York. The growth of the College, the enrichment of the educational experience for our students, and service to the community continue to be some of our priorities. This past year has been full of noteworthy accomplishments, such as our Green Campus Project, which is making the CSI campus more environmentally friendly. The Staten Island Breast Cancer Research Initiative continues to make a positive impact on breast cancer incidence and mortality through education and research. The supercomputer mentioned in my letter to you last year has become a reality, and I am proud to say that CSI now has high-capacity computational stations on campus that are fully operational and available to all faculty and students. CSI has a long and distinguished history of success and achievement that we continue to build upon and enhance each year. We look forward to making even greater strides this year with your continued assistance. Thank you to our outstanding faculty, our hard-working students and their very supportive families, our caring staff, the tireless Foundation Board, and, of course, our tremendously involved and generous family of alumni and donors! Together, we are helping to write CSI’s story of success. Sincerely,

Tomás D. Morales, PhD President

CSI Commencement 2009


Message From The CSI Foundation Board President The primary mission of the CSI Foundation is to secure philanthropic support from concerned and motivated friends for the advancement of CSI. With your tremendous assistance, we have done just that. Even in these hard economic times, financial support for CSI has continued, and the importance of each person’s gift has been intensified. Your gift has a crucial impact on our students specifically and on the College’s continuing development in general. The Board of the CSI Foundation has worked tirelessly to gain the support of our alumni, government officials, and the Staten Island community to anchor CSI as a great center of educational, social, and cultural opportunities. Consider some of CSI’s FY 09 (July 1, 2008 – June 30, 2009) endeavors: •

Secured the bright future of our stellar nurses with the Brooklyn Home for Aged Men/Nancy K. Munson $200,000 Scholarship Endowment

Invested in and fostered the development of future engineers through high school workshops with generous help from National Grid, bringing the field of engineering to life for many students who would not normally have access to such programs

Continued to find support for the Staten Island Breast Cancer Research Initiative, in which researchers and educators at CSI are working toward reducing breast cancer incidence and mortality on Staten Island None of this great work would be possible without you and our amazing family of donors. On behalf of

the Board, and the faculty, staff, and students of CSI, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to you for giving so generously from your time, your wallet, and your heart. Our successes are fueled by you! Sincerely,

Robert S. Cutrona, Sr. Board President

Nursing Program Receives $200K For Scholarships The Brooklyn Home for Aged Men presented CSI with $100,000 for creation of the Brooklyn Home For Aged Men/Nancy K. Munson Scholarship Endowment. The endowment will support nursing students who are pursuing careers in geriatric care and will provide support in perpetuity. The gift was matched through a U.S. Department Of Education challenge endowment as part of the College’s Title 3 grant, making the total endowment $200,000.

“CSI houses superb laboratories, studios, and classrooms, and is home to a world-class team of dedicated faculty,” said President Morales. “We are dedicated to the art of teaching and the science of research by promoting discovery, disseminating knowledge, cultivating minds, and nurturing the human spirit. We are very grateful to the Brooklyn Home for Aged Men. This wonderful gift, and the challenge endowment match from the U.S. Department of Education, will help us further fulfill our mission.”

Nancy Kay Munson, June 22, 1936 - May 3, 2009 Nancy Kay Munson was a friend and great supporter of the CSI community. As President of the Brooklyn Home for Aged Men, Ms. Munson was the driving force behind creating an endowment for CSI nursing students pursuing careers in geriatrics. Erika Hellstrom, Associate Executive Director of the CSI Foundation, said, “As a friend, she will truly be missed, but her memory will continue on at CSI with the Nancy K. Munson Scholarship. Nancy was determined to attend law school at a time when not many women were studying law; in fact, she fondly recalled camping outside the dean’s office at Brooklyn Law School in order to get admitted to the program. Her tenacity proved successful; she was the only woman in her law school class, graduating at the top of her class. I truly hope the CSI Nancy K. Munson scholars will carry her legacy, her tenacity, and lead the way in the field of geriatric nursing.”



National Grid Funds CSI Program To Inspire Future Engineers Don’t be fooled by the high school students playing with LEGOs®; they are actually doing some serious learning. Thanks to a series of workshops led by College of Staten Island Professor Neo Antoniades through the College’s Department of Engineering Science and Physics, high school students across Staten Island are being introduced to engineering design through hands-on study. Through the generous support of National Grid, a pilot program of engineering workshops was introduced last year as part

Breast Cancer Research Initiative At CSI Seeks To End Deadly Disease Breast cancer is an epidemic on Staten Island. In fact, Staten Island not only has the highest breast cancer mortality rate among the five New York City boroughs, but it also has one of the highest death rates due to the disease in the entire state. In an effort to see these dismal statistics improve, the research staff at the Staten Island Breast Cancer Initiative (SIBCRI) at CSI works to find the causes of these high rates of breast cancer, as well as to inform and educate the Staten Island community about early detection and prevention.

Clean Air Education Program for students interested in protecting the environment. The program also provides a greater understanding of the environment among school children by educating their teachers in environmental science, providing them with lesson plans and materials that they can use in the classroom. Recently, CSI Environmental Science majors had the opportunity to educate two Con Edison executives about how the Clean Air Education Program works and why it is effective. Con Edison’s Senior Vice President of Customer Operations Marilyn Caselli said, “This is a remarkable platform that’s so robust when it comes to saving the environment.” Through the CSI Foundation, Con Edison provided a grant to fund this course built to educate school teachers throughout Staten Island and Brooklyn. Ms. Caselli cited the importance of education in creating a healthier attitude toward the planet. Not long ago, the College was awarded $410,000 in a Job Access and Reverse Commute Grant from the New York State Department of Transportation for the Staten Island Ferry Shuttle. In addition to providing a stress-free commute for students and staff, the grant promotes the reduction of the greenhouse gas emissions that would otherwise be increased if people drove their cars. For those who prefer to drive, CSI has developed a Rideshare Program to ease congestion on the roads. The Rideshare matches people in carpools in an attempt to reduce auto emissions that pollute the air. CSI President, Dr. Tomás Morales notes, “The College of Staten Island believes that all of its initiatives will help the CSI campus and the Staten Island community to create more sustainable energy environments, which will eventually make the world a healthier place to live.”



Environmental Justice Conference Hosted By CSI’s Center For Environmental Science And Con Edison The Center for Environmental Science hosted the first conference of its kind at CSI, “Environmental Justice: History, Issues, and Outlook,” in May 2009. The conference, sponsored by Con Edison, was a forum that brought together professionals from the government, academic, non-profit, and private sectors to discuss environmental justice issues.

Jennifer Jankauskas

June M. Como, RN ‘70

Adjunct Professor, Nursing

“The reason that I give to the Foundation is that I feel it is very important to support an institution that has nurtured me through the years. I began as an undergraduate in the mid ‘70s in the Associate Degree Nursing program, a program that set me on a wonderful life trajectory within nursing and academia. I also completed my second master’s degree here and have taught as adjunct and now full-time. I have seen both sides of our institution and since I can give back through my support, maybe other students will be able to realize their dreams as I realized mine. Thank you for the opportunity to be able to give.”


Gordon Di Paolo

Assistant Professor, Business

“If one has good fortune in life one also has an opportunity to share it with others, an opportunity to give something back. Also, I am fortunate to have a job that I love. I consider it a privilege to be able to do what I do. Hence, my pleasure to give back to CSI.”

CSI Alumni Association Board

“Education will always give an opportunity or two. The realization of those opportunities comes from a reflection on the time spent during the education process at CSI. If you had the opportunity to share this process with other individuals, you still would be learning. When a donation to the Foundation is made, whether it be to programs such as Nursing, the Arts, or the many other scholarship programs offered at the College, you are continuing the process. Everyday we must learn at least one thing new, so it is said. Why not contribute then to continue it? You will make a difference. Then when someone says Thank You, you’ll know why.”


Fran Mitilieri

Assistant Athletic Director

“I believe in higher education and in supporting an institution that has supported me. As a grad student and member of the College community, I have realized the value of what the College offers its students, as well as the entire College family.”

Anthony DeFazio Friends Of CSI Highlight Anthony DeFazio isn’t a graduate of CSI, but to hear the excitement in his voice when he speaks of the campus community, you would think he did spend time here as a student. Of course, he knows the College well because his children are graduates, but chances are he would have become involved with the Friends of CSI even if they hadn’t. Why? A lifelong Staten Islander, DeFazio is interested in helping the borough to become the best it can be. As a member of the Friends of CSI, he is doing just that. “We have two functions,” says DeFazio of the Friends of CSI
