Dear Morrisville Community,
Welcome, Mustangs! We are so glad that you are here! I am thrilled to start my tenure as the Interim Vice President for Student Affairs and Chief Diversity Officer here at SUNY Morrisville. The Student Affairs Division includes the following campus departments: Residence Life & Housing, Athletics & Intramurals, Health & Counseling Services, Student Activities, University Police, and Equity, Inclusion & Title IX. We are committed to providing support and engaging our students during this challenging time.
The entire campus has been involved in creating a campus that ensures your safety and success. You are required to wear face coverings, maintain physical distancing and not participate in large gatherings, such as parties, to keep us all safe. We understand how difficult this can be but know it is critical for the health of our campus community.
We hope you have seen the information about intramurals, the fitness center opening, and sports teams practicing, as well as activities provided by Student Activities and Residence Life, Equity & Inclusion, and Student Government Organization Clubs. We look forward to a time when we can come together again in large groups for athletics, concerts, movies and other campus activities.
I am inspired by you and the stories and experiences you have shared. I plan to continue meeting with people to further my understanding of the campus climate and the needs of students in my role as interim VP for Student Affairs and as the Chief Diversity Officer.
As we develop a robust Student Affairs division, please take advantage of all opportunities to contribute actively to this effort. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your thoughts, concerns, and/or questions. Please contact me if you are interested in participating a student advisory council to assist in building programming that supports your success. I am always happy to hear from you at Bonderm@morrisville.edu or 315.684.6981! You can also follow me on Twitter at @MaryBonderoff.
Mary H. Bonderoff, Ed.D.
