SUNY-ESF Celebrates Partnership with Syracuse City Schools

ESF in the High Schools


The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) will be celebrating its partnership with the Syracuse City School District (SCSD) during an ESF in the High School open house on Feb. 8.

The college recently joined with the SCSD to provide ESF in the High School, a program that enables qualified high school students take Global Environment (EFB 120) and Writing and the Environment (CLL 190). The program enables participating high school juniors and seniors to experience college-level coursework firsthand; visit the ESF campus; meet and consult with the college’s faculty, staff and students; use the college library and other facilities; and earn college credit while still in high school.

Addressing open house attendees will be ESF President Cornelius B. Murphy, Jr.; Dr. Charles M. Spuches, associate dean; Provost William P. Tully; and SCSD Superintendent Stephen C. Jones.

Other activities include a presentation by Dr. Thomas E. Amidon, chair of the Faculty of Paper Science and Engineering (PSE), and a guided tour of Walters Hall and its pilot paper plant.

Spuches will present an overview of the ESF in the High School program and there will also be an instructional technology/classroom tour.

Those attending will enjoy lunch with participants from the College-wide Symposium on Teaching and Learning also taking place that day.
