The second annual meeting of the SUNY Distinguished Academy will be held, Tuesday, May 21, 2013. Twenty-nine SUNY faculty will be inducted into the Distinguished Academy. They will be honored for their promotion to the distinguished rank – the highest system honor conferred upon SUNY faculty.
Also being recognized on this occasion as the Distinguished Academy Honorary Inductee is Richard Gambino of Stony Brook University for his extensive work in Engineering. All distinguished faculty in active service within SUNY are also members of the SUNY Distinguished Academy, established last March. These active members have undertaken a strong set of initiatives to work on in the coming year, and they will gather at this meeting to strategize on a plan for accomplishing these goals.
