Statement from SUNY Empire State College President Merodie A. Hancock
“On behalf of the entire SUNY Empire State College community across the state, I welcome Chancellor Kristina Johnson to The State University of New York.
“Chairman McCall, the Board of Trustees and the search committee have done an outstanding job in attracting such a brilliant mind to SUNY, whose proven ability to lead, educate and innovate will surely build on the achievements and legacy of Chancellor Zimpher’s eight-year tenure.
“I look forward to collaborating with Chancellor Johnson to accelerate SUNY’s positive momentum in educating and graduating more students, advancing scholarship and research and expanding community service.”
