Several trustees are not speaking in support...pie in the sky visions, very short on detail and zero explanation WHY?


This guy even though he is in support is asking that someone CAN explain what CNSE can do alone that they can't do as part of UA...love this question. Explain it!

OH...one last point...the last trustee to speak who was in favor of this separation asked that Kaloyeros be present at the next meeting to speak to why CNSE needs this level of autonomy instead of leveraging the strengths of UA with those of CNSE to be better as a whole.


Good, let Kaloyeros answer this question...

My own personal opinion on what I heard...


It appears to me that a seed has been planted to question why this needs to be done. At the start of the discussion everyone was just agreeing with it until Mr. Staller spoke...then I felt the response in the room was much more tempered. It appears he was on point with this group-think description. I still believe that Gov. Cuomo will push this through but I'm not sure it's the slam dunk that it appeared to be.

To Members of the Campus Community:


This afternoon the SUNY Board of Trustees met to make a final recommendation to Chancellor Zimpher regarding the future of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) and the University at Albany. The trustees proposed that CNSE become a separate, degree-granting facility within the SUNY system by the 2014-15 academic year.


The board decision follows the unanimous recommendation of the Chancellor’s advisory group comprising members of the Board of Trustees, SUNY Administration, UAlbany, CNSE, and the Governor’s office.


Chancellor Zimpher’s immediate next steps include the establishment of a mutually beneficial Memorandum of Understanding between UAlbany and CNSE, including an implementation team from SUNY Administration, SUNY Research Foundation, CNSE, and UAlbany. This team will explore outstanding issues such as mission, governance, academics, strategic partnerships, innovation, and shared services.


CNSE has considerable autonomy within UAlbany and already has its own administrative structure. During the transitional year, UAlbany will continue to provide support for student housing, general education courses, access to clubs, activities, dining facilities and other amenities.


As the pioneering research University that spawned CNSE, we will continue to develop new, cutting-edge academic and research opportunities across the arts and sciences. We will build on past successes to take the University to the next level of educational excellence for the benefit of our students, faculty and the community-at-large.


This decision signifies the beginning of a new relationship -- one in which the University at Albany, CNSE and all stakeholders will partake to advance UAlbany and CNSE.
