I am pleased to share with you, Realizing
UB 2020: Achieving Academic Excellence.
UB’s statement of institutional direction and the culmination
of nearly nine months of collaborative discussions and analyses by
our entire campus community. President Tripathi and I are very
grateful for the engagement of faculty, staff and students in the
Realizing UB 2020 process, which has resulted in the refinement and
further articulation of our ambitious UB 2020 plan. In particular,
I would like to extend my deep appreciation to SUNY Distinguished
Professor Bruce McCombe, chair of the Campus Advisory Committee;
Professor John Thomas, chair of the Faculty Advisory Committee; and
all of the faculty liaisons and staff who worked diligently to
extend our communication to the campus community.
