History of QuestIn 1979, The Scholarly and Creative Activity Committee (SCAC), then known as the Faculty Research Committee (FRC), wanted to develop ways to encourage more research on campus. One suggestion was to have a Scholarly Activities at Oswego Conference Day, where faculty could present their research to the campus community. Dr. Helen Daly organized the day and it was decided to call it “Quest” in honor of the College’s “quest for knowledge”. Quest had an impressive 77 presentations that rst year. In 1982, the administration knew this would be a successful annual program and canceled classes for the rst time to bring additional focus to the event. In 1996, Quest was dedicated to the memory of Dr. Daly, who died in 1995, because she took the concept of Quest and turned it into an annual tradition that celebrates campus-wide scholarly and creative activity. Today Quest is a mix of faculty, students and campus-wide presentations with over 300 participants. Welcome to QuestWelcome to SUNY Oswego’s Quest event. This symposium provides an opportunity for our campus to come together and celebrate Oswego students’ scholarly and creative works. It highlights what is best about an Oswego education by showcasing our students’ best works and how our faculty support these tremendous efforts. It also provides an opportunity for other students to interact and engage with their peers around these pursuits and hopefully set their own sights to participate in Quest in the future. I encourage you to support your friends and colleagues that are participating and take the opportunity to have a discussion about their scholarly and creative interests. Spend some time not only with people from your own programs, but also engage and embrace the range of topics and elds presented today. Thanks to all of our student presenters, faculty mentors and all who participate in this year’s Quest. Scott R. Furlong, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, SUNY Oswego

15 Why Representation Matters: Voices from TOC II Scholars11:00 a.m. – Noon • 232 Marano Campus Center Sponsor: School of Education: Teacher Opportunity Corps, Nichole Brown and Ashley Kirkland The New York State Department of Education recently awarded sixteen colleges and universities with grant money to increase the number of historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged individuals entering and being retained in teaching elds. SUNY Oswego’s School of Education, was one of the schools awarded funding, $325,000 a year for ve years, totaling $1.63, to continue eorts to recruit, prepare and graduate candidates to diversify the teaching workforce. In this panel discussion the participants will talk about why representation matters, and how they believe TOC has helped develop them as future teachers to be changed agents in teaching all students in high-needs schools. They will share their personal stories of why they want to teach in urban areas, as well as, some of the highs and lows of preparation for teaching. This 60 minute session will allow for each scholar to share and for interactive dialog and Q & As. Ashley Kirkland, Lead TOC II Scholar, will be the moderator.

With the current 4G wireless communication systems’ hardware approaching the limits of what is physically possible, and traditional methodologies of data encryption so often proving insucient for protecting users’ data, non-traditional ideas for achieving these tasks must begin to be considered. Such a technology would pose immediate and tremendous interest to those in the business of high data rate, secure communications. The development of precisely this potentially revolutionary piece of technology is the focus of the work. We are working on designing, developing, fabricating, and testing a piece of equipment which could potentially allow for data to be sent at much higher rates than could be possible with existing technologies, and which simultaneously oers encryption of user data at the wireless hardware level. The technology currently under development will oer a novel method of data encryption using a new signal modulation method. Michael Kolacki 11:00 a.m.

History of QuestIn 1979, The Scholarly and Creative Activity Committee (SCAC), then known as the Faculty Research Committee (FRC), wanted to develop ways to encourage more research on campus. One suggestion was to have a Scholarly Activities at Oswego Conference Day, where faculty could present their research to the campus community. Dr. Helen Daly organized the day and it was decided to call it “Quest” in honor of the College’s “quest for knowledge”. Quest had an impressive 77 presentations that rst year. In 1982, the administration knew this would be a successful annual program and canceled classes for the rst time to bring additional focus to the event. In 1996, Quest was dedicated to the memory of Dr. Daly, who died in 1995, because she took the concept of Quest and turned it into an annual tradition that celebrates campus-wide scholarly and creative activity. Today Quest is a mix of faculty, students and campus-wide presentations with over 300 participants. Welcome to QuestWelcome to SUNY Oswego’s Quest event. This symposium provides an opportunity for our campus to come together and celebrate Oswego students’ scholarly and creative works. It highlights what is best about an Oswego education by showcasing our students’ best works and how our faculty support these tremendous efforts. It also provides an opportunity for other students to interact and engage with their peers around these pursuits and hopefully set their own sights to participate in Quest in the future. I encourage you to support your friends and colleagues that are participating and take the opportunity to have a discussion about their scholarly and creative interests. Spend some time not only with people from your own programs, but also engage and embrace the range of topics and elds presented today. Thanks to all of our student presenters, faculty mentors and all who participate in this year’s Quest. Scott R. Furlong, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, SUNY Oswego
