Statement by SUNY Chairman H. Carl McCall and Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher

October 11, 2016

"We accept Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros’ resignation as president of SUNY Poly, and we are evaluating his request to return to his faculty position.‎ As Dr. Kaloyeros indicated in his resignation letter, his ‘continued leadership would pose a distraction from SUNY Poly continuing its good work’.

"While Dr. Kaloyeros’ service as president has ended, his practices and actions are under our ongoing review. In addition, we will continue to cooperate with federal and state prosecutors as their respective investigations continue.

"We continue to direct executive staff at SUNY System Administration, under the leadership of Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Alexander N. Cartwright, to serve in an officer-in-charge capacity for the campus until an individual can be appointed.

"Our primary focus continues to be the thousands of students, faculty, researchers, and staff that SUNY Poly serves."
