OCC president to lead School of Education seminar on two-year college

Debbie Sydow, president of Onondaga Community College (OCC), will present a seminar exploring education access at community colleges. This three-credit class, offered through SU’s School of Education, will be held on the OCC campus during the spring 2012 semester. Sydow will be assisted by Kristine Duffy, vice president for enrollment management and student development at OCC.

The course will benefit those who seek a leadership role in post-secondary education, or a position in research or teaching at a community college or at partnering institutions. Those interested in a career in educational policy with a government or nonprofit educational agency would also benefit from the course.

Sydow is the seventh president of OCC. Under her leadership, OCC has experienced enrollment growth and developed a comprehensive strategic enrollment management program and centralized enrollment services. She has also created a Regional Higher Education Center, a new sustainability initiative and a highly acclaimed Arts Across Campus series.
