Medaille Students Create New Tracking System for Local Nonprofit
Students taking a management information systems course at Medaille College recently worked together to create a new tracking system for the Service Collaborative of WNY, Inc. (TSC). This independent nonprofit organization which addresses community need through direct service was selected as a partner for a Community-Based Learning Project with the Medaille students. With approximately 200 AmeriCorps graduates annually, TSC needed a system to track these members and further engage them in community service. The students in instructor Susan Swinarski’s class — Sarah Hawk, Alexis Kraska, Alyssa Murzynowski, Charles Panepinto, Andrew Parks, Mercedes Sulzbach and Sean Wilson — analyzed TSC’s existing system and evaluated the options available within Microsoft Office. The result is a newly designed spreadsheet that utilizes more complex database features to streamline data entry and information retrieval. Working as a team, the students were responsible for every aspect of the project.
Instrumental in setting up the project was Nicole Calamunci, Medaille’s Multicultural and Community-Based Learning Coordinator, while Information Systems Program Director Jonas Patricko oversaw the project from concept to completion.
On May 17, Medaille College’s 2019 graduates walked the stage and accepted their diplomas at the College’s graduate and undergraduate commencement ceremonies, as friends, family, and Medaille faculty and staff assembled at Kleinhans Music Hall to celebrate.
