Union Protest on Plan to Combine SUNY Presidencies

September 1, 2011

More than 200 members of United University Professions, the faculty union of the State University of New York, protested at the Canton campus Wednesday over a plan to have a single president (not the current Canton leader) for the Canton and Potsdam campuses, North Country Now reported. Canton faculty members say that savings will be minimal if any, and that the two-campus presidency shouldn't be forced on them. SUNY is a 64-campus system facing deep budget cuts, and system leaders say that they hope to promote efficiency by sharing campus services where possible, including a few presidencies.
