Sandy Relief Effort

SUNY Delhi students majoring in carpentry, electrical, architecture and construction technology and management provided skilled assistance for Sandy recovery efforts during the college spring break 2013. Students were honored to work with Habitat for Humanity and New York Cares while putting into practice what they learned while studying at SUNY Delhi. The Delhi students’ volunteer work caught the attention of New York Daily News and USA Today.

Interpretive Kiosk for the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center

SUNY Delhi architecture technology majors volunteered their expertise to aid in the creation of the Maurice D. Hinchey Interpretive Center in Tremper, NY. As part of a design studio course and a service- learning project, they provided conceptual designs of the facility that serves as a gateway for visitors and residents to learn about the variety of recreational and cultural activities available in the Catskill Park and Region.

Inclusive Classrooms

SUNY Delhi students work with The ARC of Delaware County to help those with intellectual and developmental disabilities attend traditional college classes as part of an inclusive classroom/service-learning program. The goals are to positively impact attitudes about diversity, develop new relationships/partnerships with others, and foster individual growth. The program has grown to involve several different faculty members across campus.
