In a Facebook Live presentation of Stony Brook’s “Beyond the Expected” podcast this Wednesday, Interim President Michael Bernstein will welcome key University players to discuss the effect of coronavirus on 2020 graduates.
The live stream will be available on the University’s Facebook page on Wednesday, May 13, at 11 am ET.
The live podcast will examine how professionals across our campus are working to deliver the special celebrations our Class of 2020 deserves, the career assistance the class needs in a troubling economic climate, and the overall support that the SBU alumni network offers to help this unique class transition from students to alumni.
This week’s guests include:
- Matthew Colson, Executive Director of Alumni Relations and the Alumni Association, will talk about alumni programs, how alumni are stepping up and connecting with our students, and how the alumni network is as strong as ever and ready to support their new fellow alumni.
- Diana Hannan, Executive Director, SBU Conferences & Special Events, will talk about how her team, and many others, are dedicating themselves to moving deferral degrees to a virtual setting, helping new alumni feel celebrated and hoping to bring them back in the future for an in-person ceremony.
- Kimberly Joy Dixon, Director of Employer Engagement and Diversity Recruitment, Career Center, will talk about how the Career Center continues to support our students, how the organization is connecting students with employers, the challenges they may be facing, and some success stories.
