SUNY Empire Connects

by Danielle Boardman, Coordinator of Student Life

Every week SUNY Empire Connects offers a collection of live, virtual programs designed to provide a variety of experiences for students. Topics have included employment searches, academic and family-friendly study skills workshops, health and wellness activities for all ages, arts and culture explorations, opportunities for student-to-student connections, and drop-in hours with college offices, just to name a few.

Each Sunday, SUNY Empire Connects releases a full schedule of the upcoming week’s events that are designed to support, engage, and connect with you. We also email a copy of the schedule to all students every Sunday evening.

As we began to shut down last spring in response to COVID-19, “Social isolation, stress and anxiety was yet another emerging area of concern expressed by our students and their families,” wrote Tai Arnold, vice provost for student success. SUNY Empire Connects was a collaboration between students, staff, and faculty in response to that concern.

Now that we are many months into this pandemic, SUNY Empire Connects has become a student-engagement platform in addition to a way for students to connect with other SUNY Empire students.
