Geneseo Community:

Due to class and activities cancellation, as well as our guest of honor
being snow-bound in Buffalo, today's farewell reception honoring Fatima
Rodriguez Johnson has been postponed and rescheduled for Tuesday, February
5, 2019 from 2-4PM in the CU Fireside Lounge.

Please join us Tuesday to celebrate, honor, and say goodbye to Miss Fatima.

Geneseo Community:

It is with mixed emotions - so happy for her, but so sad for us - that I
announce that Fatima Rodriguez Johnson will be leaving the Geneseo
community on February 1st to serve as associate dean for diversity and
inclusion at Canisius College in her hometown of Buffalo. ?Miss Fatima? as
she is known to students, has been an incredible asset to SUNY Geneseo.  In
her role as coordinator, assistant dean, then associate dean of students
for Multicultural Programs and Services, she has mentored and educated
students, faculty and staff, and helped to develop the campus community to
be even more welcoming than it was before her arrival. Her outreach to
students, offices and departments has been outstanding, and the difference
she has made in the lives of students is immeasurable.

 As a testament to the impact Fatima has had on others, she has won
numerous campus, state, and regional awards, including our campus? Pride
Award, a Diversity and Inclusion Leadership award, the Ibero-American
Action League of Rochester Alicia Torres award for embracing diversity, the
SUNY outstanding Student Affairs program award for Real World Geneseo,  the
SUNY Chancellor?s Award for Excellence in Professional Service, the NASPA
Region II ?Mid-level Student Affairs Professional Award?, and more.

I invite you to join Fatima for a farewell reception to wish her well in
her new role. The reception will be held on Thursday, January 31 in the
College Union Fireside Lounge (above Starbucks), from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
There will not be a formal program, just an opportunity to meet and thank
Fatima for all that she has done for, and meant to, Geneseo. Please stop by
for some delicious cake, desserts, fruit, and cheese and crackers, and to
extend best wishes to our friend, mentor, and colleague Miss Fatima.
