Statement from SUNY Interim Chancellor Dr. John B. Clark on the Executive Budget Proposal
January 23, 2008
Statement from SUNY Interim Chancellor Dr
York State Commission on Higher Education provides a roadmap to elevate SUNY’s
64-campus system to become the best public higher education system in the country.
The proposed 2008-09 Executive Budget shares that goal and in certain areas
demonstrates a long-term state commitment aimed at funding public higher
education, especially the proposed creation of an endowment as a permanent
revenue source for SUNY and by providing statutory tools to allow the
University to operate in a much more effective and efficient manner.
University is currently examining the details of the budget proposal, along
with the challenges and opportunities including operating and capital
investment. We look forward to working with the Governor, the Senate and the
Assembly as budget deliberations unfold.”
