Sophomore Year Initiative (SYI)

Welcome to the Sophomore Year Initiative (SYI) web page,SYI was a Title V Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) grant-funded program administered by the United States Department of Education (USDOE) from 2012 to 2017. SYI was a collaborative program between the divisions of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, including the offices of Undergraduate Academic Advisement, Career Services, College Counseling Services, and the Instructional Support Services Program (ISSP).

The mission of SYI was to provide support services and programming to first-time full-time freshmen (FTFTF) during their second, third, and fourth semesters of study as well as transfer students who enter as sophomores. The program aims to promote academic success, retention and persistence, increase rate of progress towards graduation, facilitate student early selection of a major area of study, and to encourage campus and community engagement. The SYI program provided students with academic and career advisement, personal counseling, and tutoring support for academic writing as well as the social and natural sciences. The program also cultivated faculty and staff collaboration in sponsorship of major fairs, career and major events and workshops, and opportunities for students to engage in pre-major clubs and other campus activities.

Effective Monday October 2, 2017, the programs and services of the Sophomore Year Initiative (SYI) are being provided directly by Lehman College. Over the last five years, the program has been very effective in enhancing retention and graduation rates for freshmen and sophomores at Lehman.

Many of the features of the SYI program will become part of the fabric of Lehman’s services for students.

Our thanks to the SYI staff team for their dedication. We are also grateful to the many student leaders and volunteers who have supported the office and the many staff at Lehman who contributed to the work of the SYI over five years of the project.

Students remaining in the SYI cohort will continue to receive extensive academic advising support from SYI Advisor, Mike Kaler.

An increase in the upper-limit intensity of hurricanes with global warming was suggested on Zales 1/10 CT Tw PrincessCut Diamond Frame Heart Collar Promise Ring in 10K White Gold oLW32
by M.I.T. Professor Kerry Emanuel in 1987. In the late 1990s, Knutson, Tuleya, and Kurihara at GFDL/NOAA began simulating samples of hurricanes from both the present-day climate and from a greenhouse-gas warmed climate. This was done by “telescoping-in” on coarsely resolved tropical storms in GFDL’s global climate model using the high-resolution GFDL hurricane prediction model ( Figure 12 ). A research report describing this work was published in Science (1998), with a more detailed paper in Climate Dynamics (1999, vol. 15). All of these studies, as well as our more recent ones, include the moderating effect of atmospheric stabilization aloft under high CO 2 conditions, rather than simply increasing the sea surface temperature alone.

In a follow-up study , which appeared in the Journal of Climate(2001), NOAA scientists Knutson and Tuleya teamed up with Isaac Ginis and Weixing Shen of the University of Rhode Island to explore the climate warming/ hurricane intensity issue using hurricane model coupled to a full ocean model. The coupled model was used to simulate the “cool SST wake” generated by the hurricanes as they moved over the simulated ocean ( Figure 13 ). The model simulations including this additional feedback still showed a similar percentage increase of hurricane intensity under warm climate conditions as the original model without ocean coupling.

A comprehensive idealized hurricane intensity modeling study by Knutson and Tuleya, published in Journal of Climate (2004), confirms the general conclusions of previous studies but makes them more robust by using future climate projections from nine different global climate models and four different versions of the GFDL hurricane model. The GFDL hurricane model used for the study is an enhanced resolution version of the model used to predict hurricanes operationally at NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Prediction. According to this latest study, an 80 year build-up of atmospheric CO2 at 1%/yr (compounded) leads to roughly a one-half category increase in potential hurricane intensity on the Saffir-Simpson scale and an 18% increase in precipitation near the hurricane core. A 1%/yr CO2 increase is an idealized scenario of future climate forcing. As noted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), there is considerable uncertainty in projections of future radiative forcing of earth’s climate. A criticism of our paper by Michaels et al. is responded to.

An implication of the GFDL studies is that if the frequency of tropical cyclones remains the same over the coming century, a greenhouse-gas induced warming may lead to an increasing risk globally in the occurrence of highly destructive category-5 storms.
