Statement from SUNY Empire State College President Alan R. Davis on Governor Cuomo’s 2012 State of the State Address

“Governor Cuomo’s expansion of the historic NYSUNY 2020 Challenge Grant Act is great news. Moreover the governor’s praise for SUNY as a great equalizer is correct in every way. SUNY Empire State College’s adult learners are our precious jewels and we share the governor’s pride in providing them with an education of the highest quality anytime, anywhere, onsite, online or both.

 “As an open institution of higher education, the college brings people back into the education pipeline by recognizing and respecting their prior learning and providing a clear path to completing their college degrees. Thanks to the leadership of Governor Cuomo and Chancellor Zimpher the college looks forward to the NYSUNY 2020 competition and to doing our part in the continuing social and economic revitalization of this great state.”
