Statement from Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher on Open SUNY Award

September 26, 2014

“We are proud to have earned national recognition from the Online Learning Consortium for the Open SUNY Institutional Readiness Program, which will be key to the long-term effectiveness of Open SUNY.

“The Online Learning Consortium Quality Scorecard we are using is a self-assessment tool that enables campuses to determine how ready they are to deliver quality online programs powered by Open SUNY. Using this tool, the Institutional Readiness Program is proving to be an effective means to ensure the success of our programs, our faculty, and ultimately, our students.”
