College Recognized for Graduation Rate Gains

In a report released Dec. 2, The Education Trust recognized SUNY Oneonta as one of 26 public colleges and universities across the country that have had the biggest improvements in graduation rates among African American, Latino and Native American students.

“We are delighted to receive national recognition for our gains in this area,” said SUNY Oneonta President Nancy Kleniewski. “For the future, we look to build on our accomplishments, as raising the graduation rate and further diversifying our student body are two of the objectives within the college’s Strategic Plan 2015.”

According to the report, “Rising Tide: Do College Grad Rate Gains Benefit All Students?”, more than two-thirds of all four-year public colleges and universities increased overall graduation rates from 2003 to 2013. And among the 255 institutions that improved and serve a sizable population of African American, Latino and Native American students, 77 percent raised graduation rates for their underrepresented minority students.

However, many institutions have not narrowed longstanding gaps between groups. Of the 255 institutions examined, graduation rates for minority students increased only slightly more than those for white students (6.3 versus 5.7 percentage points). This means that gaps have narrowed by less than 1 percentage point in 10 years — an improvement rate far too slow to close completion gaps, at least in this century, according to report co-author Kimberlee Eberle-Sudré, Ed Trust’s higher education policy analyst.

SUNY Oneonta has bucked this trend. From 2003 to 2013, the college’s three-year average graduation rate for minority students increased by 23.1 percentage points. Further, the gap between graduation rates for underrepresented and white students has narrowed over the past 10 years. In 2013, the three-year average graduation rate for SUNY Oneonta students from underrepresented groups was 65.6%, compared with 70.1 percent for white students.

SUNY Oneonta was one of three SUNY schools recognized in the report.

“Less than half of adult New Yorkers currently hold a college degree, and by 2020, 70 percent of the jobs in our state will require one,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “Congratulations to SUNY Oneonta, SUNY Buffalo State College and the University at Buffalo for this much-deserved national recognition of their efforts to increase degree completion among students while all of SUNY continues to work toward a goal of 150,000 degrees per year.”

The Education Trust is a nonprofit advocacy organization that promotes high academicachievement for all students at all levels, pre-kindergarten through college. Its goal is to close the gaps in opportunity and achievement that consign far too many young people — especially those from low-income families or who are black, Latino or American Indian — to lives on the margins of the American mainstream.

Sound bath experiences provide opportunities for relaxation and a chance to quiet one's mind. Other forms of meditation, intention, or visualization may be incorporated into the sound session.   Please bring a mat, blanket, or towel (to lie on and/or cover you) and a pillow for comfort.

Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. Rating: R (for strong violence and language throughout)

Wednesday, January 25, 2017 (6:00 PM - 7:00 PM)

Location: Morris Hall - Craven Lounge

A crystal singing bowl sound meditation session or "sound bath" is a kind of "horizontal concert,” wherein participants lie on blankets or mats as the facilitator creates a soundscape utilizing a range of therapeutic drone instruments such as differently tuned singing bowls, drums, chimes, gongs, or bells to create a deep listening experience. Sound bath experiences provide opportunities for relaxation and a chance to quiet one's mind. Other forms of meditation, intention, or visualization may be incorporated into the sound session.   Please bring a mat, blanket, or towel (to lie on and/or cover you) and a pillow for comfort.

The Accountant

Monday, January 16, 2017 (6:30 PM - 8:45 PM)

Location: Red Dragon Theatre

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. Rating: R (for strong violence and language throughout)

Movies at the Red Dragon Theatre are FREE with SUNY Oneonta ID and $3 for all others. Available 30 minutes prior to the start at the Hunt Union Information Desk.

College Recognized for Graduation Rate Gains

Latest Stories

In a report released Dec. 2, The Education Trust recognized SUNY Oneonta as one of 26 public colleges and universities across the country that have had the biggest improvements in graduation rates among African American, Latino and Native American students.

“We are delighted to receive national recognition for our gains in this area,” said SUNY Oneonta President Nancy Kleniewski. “For the future, we look to build on our accomplishments, as raising the graduation rate and further diversifying our student body are two of the objectives within the college’s Strategic Plan 2015.”

According to the report, “Rising Tide: Do College Grad Rate Gains Benefit All Students?”, more than two-thirds of all four-year public colleges and universities increased overall graduation rates from 2003 to 2013. And among the 255 institutions that improved and serve a sizable population of African American, Latino and Native American students, 77 percent raised graduation rates for their underrepresented minority students.

However, many institutions have not narrowed longstanding gaps between groups. Of the 255 institutions examined, graduation rates for minority students increased only slightly more than those for white students (6.3 versus 5.7 percentage points). This means that gaps have narrowed by less than 1 percentage point in 10 years — an improvement rate far too slow to close completion gaps, at least in this century, according to report co-author Kimberlee Eberle-Sudré, Ed Trust’s higher education policy analyst.

SUNY Oneonta has bucked this trend. From 2003 to 2013, the college’s three-year average graduation rate for minority students increased by 23.1 percentage points. Further, the gap between graduation rates for underrepresented and white students has narrowed over the past 10 years. In 2013, the three-year average graduation rate for SUNY Oneonta students from underrepresented groups was 65.6%, compared with 70.1 percent for white students.

SUNY Oneonta was one of three SUNY schools recognized in the report.

“Less than half of adult New Yorkers currently hold a college degree, and by 2020, 70 percent of the jobs in our state will require one,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “Congratulations to SUNY Oneonta, SUNY Buffalo State College and the University at Buffalo for this much-deserved national recognition of their efforts to increase degree completion among students while all of SUNY continues to work toward a goal of 150,000 degrees per year.”

The Education Trust is a nonprofit advocacy organization that promotes high academicachievement for all students at all levels, pre-kindergarten through college. Its goal is to close the gaps in opportunity and achievement that consign far too many young people — especially those from low-income families or who are black, Latino or American Indian — to lives on the margins of the American mainstream.

Loving

Friday, January 27, 2017 (6:30 PM - 8:45 PM)

Location: Red Dragon Theatre

From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry - and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since. Rating: PG-13 (for thematic elements)
