2019 New York Business Plan Competition

Posted by Tim on April 1, 2019 in Competitions, Event

I’m excited to share with you SUNY’s enthusiastic support for the 2019 New York Business Plan Competition (NYBPC).

Now in its 10th year, and established to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship at New York’s colleges and universities, the NYBPC is the nation’s largest student collegiate business plan competition. The event draws more than 500 participants comprised of entrepreneurs and student teams from more than 100 colleges and universities. Over 100 new businesses have been started and more than $20 million in venture investments have been stimulated by the NYBPC.

Applications are now being accepted from student teams invited to compete within one of 10 NYBPC Regional Competitions in New York State. Regional finalists from each of several tracks advance to the statewide finals which will take place on April 26th, at the Sage College Armory, in Albany. At the finals, students compete for prize money and recognition, and connect with mentors and potential employers and partners.

Last year student teams from SUNY campuses took home eight of the 18 cash prizes totaling $59,000 – including the $20,000 grand prize.  The 2019 competition presents another opportunity for SUNY ingenuity and entrepreneurship to shine.

Student achievement is a point of pride and focus at SUNY. The NYBPC is a key catalyst for the advancement of entrepreneurship and provides a forum to put on full display the scope, scale, diversity, and spirit of SUNY innovation.  

Being part of a competition can have a profound impact on a student’s life and career. For me, the 1975 International Science and Engineering Fair as a high school student sparked my lifelong interest and passion in the sciences. It also gave me the confidence to pursue a degree in science and engineering at Stanford University at a time when few women were in those fields.

The Long Trail Out Documentary Film Screening

Posted by Tim on April 1, 2019 in Community Announcements, Event

“The Long Trail Out, a 25-minute documentary film, appeals to a wide and diverse audience, it works across generations and has the capacity to change minds and opinions as it takes the viewer on a very personal journey of coming out.  The struggles faced during a life of hiding, the decision to come out and the physical challenges faced while climbing mountains make for a powerful and compelling story.  The film’s message will educate both young and old, gay and straight, on the importance of being proud of who you are.”

The screening will be followed by remarks from the documentary subject and East Aurora native Tim Buchanan and Shai Ben-Dor, the filmmaker and director.  The program will conclude with a coming out panel of students, faculty and staff, and a reception in the Center for the Arts Atrium.

The event is open to the community and is co-sponsored by the Intercultural and Diversity Center and the Office of Inclusive Excellence.

Posted by Tim on April 1, 2019 in Uncategorized

UB Linguistics Department internship (LIN 496) Would you like to earn UB credit, gain valuable teaching experience, and make a contribution to your community at the same time? 

The Department of Linguistics at the University at Buffalo is offering a Teaching Internship for the Fall 2019 semester, which places UB undergraduate students in the Buffalo Public Schools as a teacher’s aide or tutor, to work with children on developing their language and literacy skills. 

This internship is open to students from any major and grade level who are native or near-native speakers of English and have at least a 2.0 GPA.  For three credits, interns work 112 hours over the course of the semester (about 8-10 hours per week), in a classroom or tutoring room in one of the public schools.  Interns can be placed in an early childhood school, an elementary school, a middle school, or a high school; the children in the schools include Spanish-English bilinguals, international students, and English-speaking urban students.

There are also a very few slots for interns to work with school psychologists, guidance counselors, and social workers.  (CDS majors interested in working with an SLP should contact their own department first to inquire about their internship program.)
