From the President

Caring Bengal Award Recipient: Roswell Park

I am pleased to announce that Roswell Park, former director of the individualized studies program, received the President's Caring Bengal Award in December. Dr. Park received the award just before his retirement on December 31, 2019. The Buffalo State Community was saddened to hear of his death on April 8, 2020.

Dr. Park was nominated for the award by Neil O’Donnell, senior counselor in the Educational Opportunity Program, and remembrances have been collected from many who worked closely with Dr. Park. It is my pleasure to recognize Dr. Park for his selfless efforts and dedication to Buffalo State, making it a great place to live, learn, and work. His indelible impact will be cherished for years to come.

His award profile can be viewed on the Professional Development website.

I announced the creation and implementation of the President's Caring Bengal Award in December 2017 to recognize supportive colleagues in our Buffalo State community who not only transform the lives of our students but also help create a caring and collegial environment for our faculty, staff, and administrators.

Members of the campus community are invited to submit nominations for the President's Caring Bengal Award by 5:00 p.m. Friday, May 15. For more information about the award criteria and recipient selection process, or to submit a nomination, please visit the Professional Development website.
