How Can We Fulfill the Mission of Higher Education?

By Adrienne McNally A quick Internet search on college mission statements reveals a common thread among colleges’ purposes: civic engagement.  Institutions of higher education frequently identify that they would like their graduates to contribute positively to society, engage in public service, develop a sense of what it means to be a member of a community, and address problems in their state, nation, and world.  New York Institute of Technology is no different.  One of the main points of NYIT’s mission is to “support applications-oriented research that benefits the larger world.”  It can sometimes seem difficult to incorporate civic education into… More

On an Internship Site Visit- A Grad Assistant’s Perspective

By Archana Srinivasan I came to work last Tuesday thinking that it was going to be just another day at work, but little did I know that my supervisor had something exciting planned for the day. She told me that we were going on a site visit to the Associated Press to meet the supervisor of our student Intern working there. My excitement level shot up a little bit, as I had no idea of what happens on a site visit; this was my first one.  We managed to reach the office of AP in Manhattan making it through the… More

Reliable Nutrition Information??

There is wonderful nutrition information available from so many places but it's often difficult to discern what's reliable and what is scientifically unsound. One of my favorite sources is the Nutrition Action Health Letter that is published by the Center for Science in the Public Interest for more than 30 years. Although this organization has been called the "Food Police" for bringing to the public's attention shocking nutrition facts about foods in your supermarket and restaurant, every other month they feature the nutrition story that is the most talked about in the nutrition world. The articles, many of which are archived on the website,… More

Adrienne Mc Nally, Professor Michael Gregorek and I went to Boston during Spring Break to present at the national Cooperative Education and Internship Association conference.  I had the pleasure of first presenting with Michael on the successes we have had in collaborating on our two programs--the School of Management's Professional Enrichment Program and the Career Services Internship Certificate Program.   In true Michael style he was the star of the show.  40 audience participants laughed in between nodding their heads in disbelief of his successful outreach to students and professionals alike.  They were captivated by not only Michael's energetic delivery, (at one point he was on both… More

Crap Detection 101

Was President Barack Obama born in the United States?  Does the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommend a vegan diet for infants?  As the inventor of the WWW, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, recently commented, “the Internet does not have an IQ.”  Consider for a moment that close to 90% of university students begin their research using a search engine, and that less than 1% of all searchers travel past the first page of results.  The implications are enormous… No less problematic is that more and more of today’s information is delivered un-authorized.  In the past, scholars, editors, publishers and librarians… More
