FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Friday, February 22, 2001

Bette Frisino of Johnsonville has been appointed as Hudson Valley Community College's new Director for Student Services Information Network.

Frisino has served as Hudson Valley's Registrar for the last 15 years. She is renowned on campus for her ability to effectively address and resolve student and technology problems.

"As Director for Student Services Information Network, Bette Frisino's primary function will be to provide support to users of the college's Banner Student System, which is a new college administrative computer system that will manage student, employee and alumni records in addition to institutional financial records," said Willie Hammett, Hudson Valley's Vice President for Student Services. "Bette is a winner of the Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Professional Service, which illustrates just how well she fits into her new title."

Frisino, who will assume her new role upon completion of a search for a new Registrar, will work to develop a records management system that can provide for electronic storage, tracking and viewing of student documents that are currently housed in folders across Hudson Valley's campus.

A 1984 graduate of Russell Sage College, Frisino already has developed several systems at Hudson Valley, including the Early Warning System, which identifies and assists at-risk students. Additionally, she has reworked the college's registration system, making it more user-friendly, and placed the college catalog online.

Hudson Valley Community College, located in Troy, offers more than 50 degree and certificate programs in four academic divisions: Business; Engineering and Industrial Technologies; Health Science; and Liberal Arts and Sciences; and an Educational Opportunity Center for academic and career training. One of 30 community colleges in the State University of New York system, it has an enrollment of more than 10,000 students, and is known as a leader in distance learning initiatives and workforce training.
