Dear SUNYIT community,
For many of us, the arrival of summer means a shift in emphasis: from the academic year to summer session, from the classroom to research, from work to vacation. I hope that you are finding time to enjoy the season!
Congratulations to Kevin Grimmer, our director of athletics and recreation, his staff, and our student-athletes for winning the NEAC President's Cup, given to the best overall program in the conference, for the third year in a row.
As many of you know, I am spending part of my summer beginning the implementation of a realigned administrative structure that will enable greater shared services between SUNYIT and Morrisville State College. This was detailed in a memo to both campus communities on May 23, and a joint meeting of the two shared services committee was held on May 31 to continue the process. As we work toward the goal of reducing administrative costs and applying the savings in instructional areas, we have the full support of SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher and her team. All involved in this effort at both campuses deserve a vote of thanks, as institutional change doesn't come easily.
In recent weeks, as the semester concluded, we saw a flurry of activity on campus—events honoring academic and athletic achievements, a great celebration of our new graduates at commencement, and a nanotechnology forum that explored a bright future for SUNYIT and the Mohawk Valley. Now, with summer courses ongoing and our summerITeens day camps coming up, it promises to be a lively time on campus. Wherever your plans take you for the next few months, enjoy—and we’ll all start the new academic year refreshed and ready for its new challenges and opportunities.
