Claire Shulman
The decision to name the new state-of-the-art multimedia laboratory at Queensborough Community College the Claire Shulman Educational Technologies Center was perfectly inspired. After all, the former Queens Borough President had worked to secure funding for the facility and has long been an ardent supporter of CUNY's mission on its Queens campuses.

The Center, which will be vigorously deployed in the training of new teachers for the city and region, was dedicated on the Bayside campus in October. QCC President Eduardo Marti praised Shulman on the occasion for aiding the College's "continued growth throughout her tenure." She is seen here on the occasion, with QCC mathematics professor Patrick Wallach, at rear, demonstrating the Centeràs bells and whistles.

The facility's one instructoràs station and 24 student stations will serve the Dual/Joint Education Program with Queens College, whose students have declared their intention to become teachers. The Center will be able to integrate DVD videos, offer PowerPoint presentations, Web sites and animation simultaneously. Video-conferencing will also be possible at the Center. Live sessions can also be videotaped at the Center and disseminated on the QCC Web site and to public libraries in Queens.
