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.
