From the Vice President for Institutional Advancement
Did you know that last year’s Faculty and Staff Appeal contributed $168,000 in support of Buffalo State and our students? Because of your generosity, students were able to pay tuition bills, attend conferences, buy textbooks, and take part in studies overseas.
The campus community is invited to attend the 52nd annual Honors Convocation on Thursday, April 16, in Rockwell Hall Auditorium at 12:15 p.m. The long-standing tradition will recognize 929 students for outstanding academic achievement, with the 2009 honorees again representing more than 10 percent of the undergraduate population.
The SUNY Council on Writing (SUNYCOW) Conference, revered for its quality of training on writing pedagogy, returns to Buffalo State this year April 17 and 18. The conference offers faculty and staff the opportunity to network with colleagues throughout the state and beyond to discuss the identity and future of writing programs on college campuses.
In today’s economy, recent college graduates—including future elementary and secondary teachers—are looking for ways to get a foot in the door with potential employers.

Legendary civil rights leader Julian Bond was in Buffalo on Thursday, reaching out to members of a younger generation and urging them to stay vigilant when it comes to civil rights issues despite historic advances made with the election of President Obama. Bond, chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, was the keynote speaker for the Leadership Lecture Series at Buffalo State College, where he addressed a few hundred people Thursday afternoon in Rockwell Hall.
“Regional modernism” is the label that best describes a peculiar group of paintings made by Charles Burchfield in his native Ohio around 1920. D C Moore, which represents Burchfield’s estate, has organized a revelatory show, “Charles Burchfield 1920: The Architecture of Painting,” in conjunction with the Columbus Museum of Art in Ohio and the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo. (It tours to both museums this summer.)
Senior associate athletics director and longtime women’s basketball coach Dr. Gail F. Maloney announced her retirement from Buffalo State College, effective April 7.
