SUNY Chancellor responds to 2012 State of the State

By WKTV News

“Governor Cuomo continues to be a champion for the State University. He has it right: SUNY is a great equalizer for New Yorkers, and it will provide our state with an infinite return on its investment as SUNY drives economic development in every region, creates jobs, jobs, jobs, and trains students to become the workforce of tomorrow.

“The NYSUNY 2020 Challenge Grant Act embodies our ambition to marry academic excellence with economic revitalization and is propelling our university centers to the next level. The Governor’s extension of this act to all SUNY campuses, in the form of three additional $20 million grants, will allow our campuses to further carry out their mission to learn, to search, and to serve.

“Today’s State of the State Address reaffirms the Governor’s commitment to advancing public higher education in New York State and his unwavering confidence in SUNY’s ability to lead New York’s economic resurgence.

“It has been my absolute honor to partner with Governor Cuomo since he took office. I applaud his continued commitment to education in New York, and I look forward to building upon our partnership in the coming year.”
