Project Ernie

In 2008, NYSMATYC created a new program titled Enhancing Relationships to Nurture and Inspire Educators: Project ERNIE. The purpose of the program is to help integrate new two year college faculty into teaching mathematics at community colleges and to be members of NYSMATYC. Participants of Project Ernie are expected to attend several targeted sessions at the annual conference and participate in general conference activities when not in their own sessions. Cohorts are expected to communicate with each other during the year and periodically share professional development activities with the group.

For each of the Project ERNIE participants, NYSMATYC will provide an allowance covering a) the registration fee for the annual conference in April, b) one year’s paid membership to NYSMATYC, and c) up to $100 of reimbursable expenses.

There is an expectation that the home campus of each participant will provide support, specifically: a) to release participants from teaching responsibilities to attend the annual conference by noon on Friday, and b) to help financially support the member's attendance at this conference.

All applicants are asked to submit an application, a brief vita, and a letter of support from his/her college.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact one of the Project Directors, Raymond LaBounty (labounty@corning-cc.edu) or Mary Beth Orrange (orrange@ecc.edu).
