SUNY Trustees Choose Acting Chancellor To Succeed Malatras
An acting chancellor has been chosen to lead the State University of New York system when ailing Jim Malatras steps down next month.
The SUNY Board of Directors announced on Monday that SUNY Oswego President Deborah Stanley has been appointed to the position effective January 15.
Last May, Stanley said she planned to retire from her post at Oswego at the end of the year.
In a statement, SUNY Board Chair Merryl Tisch said that Stanley’s “decades of leadership, commitment to academic excellence and unwavering support for students” put her “well positioned” to serve. the 64 campuses of the system.
The New York Post had reported that Binghamton University president Harvey Stenger was seen as a possible acting chancellor. But Stenger had told WNBF News that “it is not something that I would be interested in, even if they asked me.”
SUNY’s board of directors has announced that it will launch a “global search” next month for a permanent chancellor.
