“On behalf of Queens Community House, I am pleased to thank you for the really terrific experience that we have had with the Queensborough Community College Service Learning Program. In general, we have found the professors and staff to be extremely responsive and flexible to our organizational needs. In particular, I would like to praise the efforts of Professor Anthony Kolios. Prof. Kolios and his students designed a data base for our agency that will meet the needs of 3 very diverse departments: community services, children and youth programs and services for older adults. Over a period of several semesters, he supervised teams of students to learn about our needs, design a data base and then refine it according to feedback. They then trained some of our key staff in how to use it so that they could train others. This was a tremendous contribution to our agency, as it met an essential management functions. The students have met with our staff and provided a professional presentation of the challenges and solutions. We have been really delighted by the experience and deeply grateful for the contribution to our agency.”
