Statement from SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher on Indiana Travel Ban

April 1, 2015

“The State University of New York supports Governor Cuomo’s executive order banning all non-essential travel to the state of Indiana, and we will instruct our campuses to immediately review any existing travel plans by faculty and staff.

“As the public university system of New York State, SUNY supports all measures to combat discrimination. I commend Governor Cuomo on taking this important stand on behalf of all New Yorkers.”
