Informed by academic research, professional literature, and author Joseph L. Chesebro's own experiences, the text explores and demonstrates the skills that have facilitated Chesebro's own students to find work and to succeed in their professional lives. Offering a very practical focus on such topics as handling conflict and giving dynamic presentations, Professional Communication at Work also covers essential interpersonal communication skills that are often not discussed, such as: Using networking when job hunting; Earning a good reputation as a new employee Using storytelling and questioning more often Developing coaching relationships with the best senior employees in our workplace, Practicing and developing new skills on our own, and Using workplace politics in a positive and constructive way to accomplish our goals. Utilizing the approach of a supportive communication coach, this text will help readers gain a variety of practical communication strategies they can apply to contribute to success in their own careers"--Publisher

In the summer of 1964, a three-night riot erupted in two predominantly black neighborhoods in downtown Rochester, New York--the culmination of decades of poverty, joblessness and racial discrimination and a significant event in the Civil Rights era. Using archival footage and interviews with those who were present, the film explores the genesis and outcome of these three nights.
Fred Edmund Jandt
By Fred E. Jandt [College at Brockport former faculty member].
This textbook challenges students to develop cultural competency by developing an understanding of how we perceive and react to cultural rules – not only those of others, but also our own. Going beyond an "American" assessment of the field, this textbook assumes that no culture is privileged over another, be that culture from across the globe or a subculture or subgroup around the corner. Issues of identity, nationality, assimilation, and inter-group relations promote appreciation of diversity among people.
Greg Elmer and Donna M. Kowal
Edited by Greg Elmer.
Includes a chapter by College at Brockport faculty member Donna M. Kowal: Digitizing and globalizing indigenous voices : the Zapatista movement.
