ONEONTA, N.Y. – The Board of Trustees at SUNY Oneonta have appointed Dr. Alberto Jose Cardelle as the college’s new president.

Cardelle will take over the post on Sept. 6.

“His abilities go beyond his resume, which is extraordinary, as he shares a passion for creating a more equitable system in which students can thrive,” said Cesar Perales, vice chairman of the SUNY board. “As a first-generation American, Dr. Cardelle knows what it means to make one’s own way, striving to better oneself as our students do every day. Having pioneered programs like the Deans’ Anti-Racism Fund at FSU and the Hispanic Male Mentoring program, we are excited to see what Dr. Cardelle brings to SUNY Oneonta in a time when equity and inclusion needs to be at the forefront of our decision making.”

Cardelle most recently served as provost and vice president for academic affairs at Fitchburg State University in Massachusetts, where he started several diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Throughout his 20-year career, he also established a bi-annual campus climate survey, a Deans’ Anti-Racism fund, an expansion of summer-bridge programs for students requiring additional support and a Hispanic Male Mentoring program
