In Topic: New SUNY chancellor is ex-Obama energy official, sources say

I'm not sure people like Zimpher or this new one care too much about transforming SUNY.

Good for the resume and pulling in a half million annually while using it as a stepping stone.

 

Doubt anything gets done.

"Players are nominated for the award by coaches from all three NCAA divisions during the collegiate season. All Watch List nominees are then screened and selected by two Selection Committees. The Selection Committees are composed of collegiate coaches, one committee for the men and one committee for the women. At the conclusion of the season the selection committees meet to rank the top five male and female finalists. The finalists are then invited to the Awards Banquet, where the Tewaaraton Award winners are announced."

 

So probably the ncaa tournament does come into play.

Fields leads the country with 87 pts with 45 goals, 42 assists, 6.69 pts/game 

 

2nd is Spenser from loyola with 71 pts, 5.46pts/game.

 

Fairly large lead.

Is there a sentence of any sort?  Slap on the wrist?  An hour of community service?

 

Resemblance of a wild pig's behavior.

SUNY has an equally impressive bureaucracy. That bureaucracy makes any changes hard if not impossible.

My hopes for her:

1) Reunite Poly and UA
2) Fill SUNY Center gaps by moving professional colleges under UA and BU. SUNY Up/Down State Medical School, Albany Law School merger. Finish that work.
3) Athletics. Raise the SUNY profile by pushing UB to AAC and UA and SBU to MAC.
4) Cut the bureaucracy at least on the SUNY Centers so they can compete with the Michigan and Penn State's of the world. Like UC (California) give SUNY Centers (flagships) their own system?

 

BINGO.  

 

edit:

And although those are fine goals to strive for... I'd replace Buffalo with Albany, sending the Danes to the AAC

and heavily investing into the state capital's university center, otherwise known as NYS's flagship. 

 

Albany has the biggest potential, is in the prime location to represent the state.  We already have a powerful

athletic program that could skyrocket in one of those upper level conferences.
