By Peire Wilson, LaGuardia Community College Of the more than 330,000 U.S. students studying abroad, only 6.1 percent are African American and 10.1 percent are Latino. This is one in a series of articles by students of color who are breaking down barriers by studying abroad thanks to the Frederick Douglass Global Fellows program, which awards 10 full scholarships a year to students at Minority Serving Institutions. These students will periodically share their stories, hopefully inspiring others to apply. Join our social media campaign, #CIEEmpowered #MSInspirational #FrederickDouglassGlobalFellows that is celebrating these extraordinary students and their experiences studying abroad.

With every election season comes the possibility of change. Political parties must make their cases to voters, and elected officials, no matter how long they’ve served, must again win the support of their constituents. And while incumbency is often a powerful advantage in New York, 2018 is already shaping up to see more turnover than in a typical year. It’s in this time of transition, with a new crop of fresh-faced candidates shaking things up, that we turn our attention to the many young individuals who are making their mark in New York City politics – and not just those seeking and winning elected office.

She has a lot to say about how CIOs can make themselves heard and earn the attention, influence and resources that they need to be effective in their roles. It’s not an easy relationship to navigate. She has heard more than one CIO confess that, in effect, “every opportunity to talk to the board is an opportunity to get fired.” CIOs are spending more time than ever presenting to the board, and they need to be effective every time they are in front of directors. With proper understanding and preparation by CIOs, the relationship with the board “can go phenomenally well,” she told an audience at … [Read more...] about The Morning Download: Gartner’s Tina Nunno Teaches CIOs How to Own the Board

Financial aid officers across the 64-campus SUNY system last week had complained that they weren’t getting answers to detailed questions about the 2-year-old scholarship program which has drawn a lot of interest from students. “Throughout the year, you help to determine student’s eligibility by verifying credits, calculating award amounts, and certifying payment … [Read more...] about State sets up website, hotline for Excelsior scholarship questions
