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

23 April 2017 - 08:54 PM

New SUNY chancellor is ex-Obama energy official, sources say Kristina Johnson could be named as soon as Monday to replace Nancy Zimpher



A former undersecretary for the U.S. Department of Energy under President Barack Obama will be named the next SUNY Chancellor.

A source with knowledge of the process told the Times Union that Kristina Johnson will succeed retiring Chancellor Nancy Zimpher to become the 13th chief executive of the national largest university network. The announcement will likely be made when the SUNY Board of Trustees meets on Monday.


The co-founder and chief executive officer at Cube Hydro Partners LLC served in the Energy Department from May 2009 to October 2010. As undersecretary, Johnson was responsible for unifying and managing a $10.5 billion energy and environment portfolio, including an additional $37 billion in energy and environment investments from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, according to her professional biography on Crunchbase. Under her leadership, the department developed an integrated Strategic Technologies Energy Plan for reducing dependence on imported oil by 75 percent to achieve a reduction in greenhouse gas and low carbon electricity, the site said.


Before her appointment in the Obama administration, Johnson was provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at the Johns Hopkins University from 2007 to 2009  and served as dean of the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University from 1999 to 2007.

Named an NSF Presidential Young Investigator in 1985 and a Fulbright Faculty Scholar in 1991, Johnson's academic awards include the Dennis Gabor Prize for creativity and innovation in modern optics (1993) and the John Fritz Medal (2008), widely considered the highest award in the engineering profession.


She was inducted into the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame (2003), The Colorado Women's Hall of Fame (2014) and the U.S. Inventor's Hall of Fame (2015). 


Johnson will replace Zimpher, who announced last year that she would resign at the end of this school year, effective June 30.

SUNY Board Chairman H. Carl McCall led a year-long international search to find Zimpher's replacement.

Zimpher, the first woman to head the system, was appointed chancellor in 2009. During her tenure, she saw both cuts in state aid, regular tuition hikes as well as recent investments in life sciences. She also enthusiastically supported Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Excelsior Scholarship plan, which would provide free tuition to SUNY and CUNY students whose families earn less than $125,000 a year. The plan will take effect in the fall.


In her final address to the SUNY community, Zimpher said SUNY should continue to focus on affordability, degree completion and preparing students for careers.


Over the past eight years, she has worked to expand proven programs like Quantway, a math remediation course, and SmartTrack, a financial literacy tool, across all campuses. She also initiated the SUNY Impact Foundation, which would enable the university to seek investment from the private sector for programs.
