After I finish my studies at SUNY Cobleskill, I’ll be transfer- ring to Cornell for two years, and then going on to medical school at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse. Since I don’t have to worry about applying to medical school, I’m able to really concentrate on my studies. Thanks to this program, I know just what my future holds.” kevin berner Associate Professor, Fisheries and Wildlife As the winner of the 2004 SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching, Kevin Berner is a popular and well-respected member of the faculty. While grizzly bears, pelicans and a wide array of birds have been the focus of his field studies, his main area of expertise is the Eastern Bluebird. He works closely with his students surveying wildlife and their habitats, often in caves. Among their more exciting discoveries was a snake skeleton from the last glacial period, thought to be thousands of years old. joanne cloughly Assistant Professor, Culinary Arts, Hospitality, and Tourism JoAnne Cloughly has been included in the prestigious guide, Who’s Who Among American Teachers. Because of the new trends in fusion cuisine, she believes that anyone who is serious about succeeding in the industry today must become knowledgeable about other cultures. “Our own diverse student body is such a great resource for our students. I encourage all of them to network and learn from one another, both in and out of the classroom.”
  16. 16. michael murphy, Ph. D. Distinguished Teaching Professor, Department of Natural Sciences Dr. Murphy is an award-winning teacher who is also doing groundbreaking research. As a Fulbright Senior Scholar, he spent a year in Prague studying embryonic and fetal kidney function. Since many kidney problems begin before birth, this area of study is of particular interest to him. He has continued this work in conjunction with the Czech Academy of Sciences and often involves his students. Dr. Murphy is also the founder of SUNYCobleskill’s Early Assurance Pre-Medical Program. rebekah adamoschek Liberal Arts Major “I just graduated from SUNY Cobleskill after majoring in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Humanities. Looking back, I can see how I was transformed here, both as a student and as a person. I attribute a lot to the Honors Program where I was constantly challenged to achieve excellence. SUNY Cobleskill provides all of the tools that are necessary for success. A student only needs to take advantage of all that’s offered.” thar meepegama Computer Information Systems Major from Sri Lanka “I’ve made a lot of good friends at SUNY Cobleskill who have helped me develop as a person, including my roommate who shares so many of my interests. I’m involved in many different clubs which are unique to this school, including the Model United Nations. My classes are small enough so the professors actually know the students — and can help us individually. I’ve already learned so much about my field because of the easy working relationship between the professors and the students.”
