President Yeigh endorses Public Higher Education Empowerment and Innovation Act

SUNYIT President endorses Gov. Paterson’s higher education legislation
Joins with SUNY Chancellor in support for comprehensive bill

SUNYIT President Wolf Yeigh today endorsed Gov. David Paterson’s Public Higher Education Empowerment and Innovation Act:

“This legislation is about jobs creation and longer-term strategies for economic development through innovation and entrepreneurship. The legislation would allow SUNY to adopt a tuition policy that is fair, equitable and responsible, and it would also authorize public-private partnerships and operational efficiencies that would create thousands of jobs while saving taxpayers millions of dollars. I applaud Governor Paterson and SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher for their leadership. As the Chancellor has said, this legislation is truly a ‘breakthrough strategy’ for public higher education.”
