The State University of New York Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher today joined University at Albany graduate Brendan Martin in the official debut of his latest track, “SUNY Anthem.” The song was previewed during the chancellor’s recent State of the University Address and will be used in conjunction with SUNY’s broader marketing efforts.

The music video is available online at B. Martin’s YouTube channel.

“Brendan is a shining example of the success and creativity of our 3 million alumni worldwide,” said Chancellor Zimpher. “When we shared a sneak peek of this music video at this year’s State of the University Address, the feedback was positively overwhelming. We are so proud of Brendan’s achievements.”

“I wanted to try new concepts and give something back to my college,” said Martin. “My friends and I are all really proud that we went to SUNY schools – because they are affordable and top quality – and so I wanted to create something that other SUNY students and alumni could be proud of. I can’t wait to travel around to the SUNY campuses and share this great new song with everyone.”

Brendan Martin graduated from the University at Albany’s Business School with a 4.0 GPA. He writes from his own experiences and what he went through growing up as a child. Martin is a rapper/song writer who began establishing himself as a promising hip-hop artist in his hometown of Colonie, New York. He has performed alongside Mac Miller, Lupe Fiasco, Big Sean, Young Jeezy, Snoop Dog and many more.

Brendan has gained a substantial following after winning SUNY Albany’s “Battle of the Bands,” T. Pain’s “Motivated” competition, and most recently, Hot 97’s “Who’s Next” competition opening for J. Cole while sweeping the “Battle for the Best” competition at SXSW. Martin performed at Summer Jam sharing the stage with ASAP Rocky, Big K.R.I.T, Azealia Banks, Pusha T, Schoolboy Q and Kendrick Lamar.

A unique approach to public conversation is helping communities across the United States to engage in meaningful dialog about key issues of the day. These conversations can help to bridge differences and identify common ground as well as determine directions for meaningful community change.

Two presenters from Broome Community College will be presenting at the upcoming Faculty Workshop Day. Lisa Strahley and Scott Corley are experienced forum moderators and work closely with their communities to encourage civic engagement and promote social justice.

We are recruiting now for students and faculty who want to develop the skills to be a moderator for our upcoming public deliberation “Shaping Our Future: How Should Higher Education Help Us Create the Society We Want?” This program is being sponsored by the Kettering Foundation and the National Issues Forum Institute.  The forum will be used as part of a national discussion on higher education and the results from this forum will be part of a national publication being developed on the topic.

If you would like to a part of this movement and either train to be a moderator on Feb. 27, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. or join us on March 9 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the public deliberation, please call 629-7690 or e-mail Kit Haynes (k.haynes@hvcc.edu) and leave your name and contact information.

Learn more about public deliberation by visiting Everyday Democracy and National Issues Forums and see some what is going on throughout the United States.

The WE@HVCC annual Spring Luncheon is on March 8 from noon until 2 p.m. We invite all of you to attend. It is a fun and relaxing precursor to the start of spring and a chance to chat with your friends and colleagues while enjoying lunch. Come support your co-workers receiving WE Scholarships!

WE still is looking for door prizes and silent auction prizes. The college employs many artists and craftspeople, and we would really appreciate a donation.  Silent auction prizes are generally worth from $50 up, and door prizes can be anything from soaps to hand towels to wine or jewelry. These items need not be hand crafted.

You can contact either myself (ext. 8108) or Sue Agan (ext. 8164) if you have something to donate (or re-gift).

Our featured entertainment this year is our own Maria Zemantauski, who is one of the world’s few heralded female flamenco-style guitarists and composers.  It will be a fun and tuneful program.

Also, if you’ve not yet made your reservation for the March 8 luncheon, you may do so online at https://www.hvcc.edu/deptweb-we/springluncheonform.htm or by completing and returning this form to Erin Manning in GUN 252. Reservations are requested by March 1. Men are welcome to attend!

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
