U. of Cincinnati's President to Head SUNY

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

University of Cincinnati President Nancy Zimpher is set to become the State University of New York's first woman chancellor on June 1.

Zimpher says her five-year goals include better coordinating the resources of the 64-campus system, trying innovative ways to make college affordable for middle class families, and potentially raising SUNY's standing in big-time collegiate sports.

In an interview today, she says that despite New York's fiscal crisis, she wants to continue investing to bring SUNY to the top levels of research institutions nationwide.

Zimpher is scheduled to be appointed later today. As head of a system with a $10 billion budget, she would be paid $545,400 and have use of SUNY-owned apartments in Albany and Manhattan as well as a driver and car.
