SUNY Oswego Wins SUNYCUAD Award for Upskilling Program
SUNY Oswego won a Judges’ Citation for Excellence in Events (Campus Community) at the recent State University of New York Council for University Advancement (SUNYCUAD) “Unconference,” held online Sept. 24-25.
The college received the recognition for its Upskilling in a Digital World program held on campus on Oct. 30, 2019. The program concept was based on a suggestion made by several alumni and Oswego College Foundation board members as a way to offer current students unique career preparation and professional development opportunities.
The primary goal of the upskilling program was to provide current students the opportunities to gain skills that gave them a chance to “Connect, Learn and Level Up” for success in today’s professional world, while engaging a diverse group of successful alumni with the campus community for career mentorship and networking. A secondary goal was to bring greater awareness to the campus community about SUNY Oswego’s subscription to LinkedIn Learning.
The event featured seven alumni who served as an emcee, a keynote speaker, presenters and moderators in three breakout sessions that focused on the following topics: Data Analytics, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Cybersecurity.
The program was the result of coordinated efforts by a number of campus offices, including the President’s Office, Alumni and Development, Communication and Marketing, Career Services and Campus Technology Services, among others.
The award highlights the strength of SUNY Oswego, emphasizing the collective commitment to excellence, and recognizing the college community’s coordinated and innovative efforts to come together to make an impact and achieve far-reaching success.
The SUNYCUAD Awards for Excellence program rewards the very best efforts of talented and creative professionals throughout the SUNY system. SUNYCUAD is a statewide organization representing all professionals employed in a cross-section of institutional advancement areas at every State University campus, from publications and web communication to alumni relations, marketing and development.
