Women Will Vote: Winning Suffrage in New York State

Monday, Oct. 16     4 pm

Sprole Center

Drawing on her recently released book Women Will Vote, Karen Pastorello will discuss how women in New York State struggled for over six decades to win the right to vote. She will highlight the grassroots activism of rural, urban, African American, Jewish, immigrant, and native-born women who formed a loose coalition aimed at attaining full suffrage for women. This unique coalition expended relentless energy and employed a variety of tactics to persuade male voters to actively support suffrage. This compelling narrative illuminates how the 1917 win in New York, which Carrie Chapman Catt considered “the very greatest victory,” relaunched suffrage as a national issue and changed the course of American history.

Books will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments will be served.

Don't forget: Books are available for purchase any time in the TC3 Bookstore, at a special discount.

If there's an aspect of teaching that you would like to discuss with your colleagues, now is the time to get onto the CTC calendar. Discussion is informal and anyone can lead. No PowerPoint required.

We get very positive feedback on sessions where teachers present their scholarly and artistic achievements. If you have something in that vein to share with your colleagues, by all means, let us know. Let's celebrate this fantastic faculty together!

Talk to Barbara Kobritz in the Library, or send an email to schedule a date. But do it soon! The fall schedule is filling up.

Mentors and Partners Program (MAPP)

All regular and adjunct faculty are invited to participate in MAPP. You choose the focus of your mentorship or partnership. Maybe there's a special curriculum development piece you want to work on with a colleague. Maybe you're new to college teaching and would like to have a more experienced teacher to guide you through the first semester. Anything that improves teaching and learning is good, and there is a stipend for participating. You can contact Barbara Kobritz, CTC Coordinator, for more information. Click on the "Read more" link for specific program guidelines, and watch for an informational Roundtable during the first week of classes.

Connecting, Collaborating and Celebrating the Art of Teaching

CCCAT will be held at Community College of the Finger Lakes on April 20, 2018. Mark your calendar now for another great opportunity to share with teachers. The conference consistently gets enthusiastic responses from participants, who spend the day sharing teaching ideas with faculty from seven area community colleges. AND: Please think about presenting. We will be looking for at least three breakout sessions to be presented by TC3 faculty. You do amazing things. Why not share the wealth?
