On a historic trip to New York last week that marked the third and fourth SUNY campus visited, President Obama announced an effort he calls “Making College More Affordable” in order to strengthen the middle class. The aim of this approach will be to hold colleges responsible for student performance and tying that, among other metrics, to financial aid distributed to students in the future.
SUNY Chancellor Zimpher was excited, but not surprised, for the two Presidential SUNY stops. “In partnership with Governor Cuomo, we have enacted a series of proactive policies that have positioned SUNY to remain one of the most affordable and quality higher education options in the United States,” she said.
This week, the Fourth of July holiday lands on a Thursday. For some of us it means a four day weekend; a chance to fire up the BBQ grill and watch fireworks. For others, it’s the chance to reflect on the founding missions of the United States. We here at SUNY would like to recognize some alumni who have made major contributions to our country through the years, giving back to the people and communities that supported them.

Hello everyone! My name is Hanna Teal, your newest source for all things research related. I have just joined Generation SUNY on behalf of the Research Foundation.
During the summer hours I live in a little town 30 minutes outside of Albany called Averill Park. Come this fall, I will be starting my final year at the University at Buffalo as an undergraduate and will achieve a joint degree in English and Communication.
My number one passion has always been writing. Once the writer of my own blog, I now am on my second year contributing to the Research Foundation facebook page. I hope to join the staff of the University at Buffalo’s new Center for Excellence in Writing this year to inspire other young students to get out there and write.
Through this blog I will be able to explore the facebook topics more in-depth and bring a student’s perspective to the latest news about SUNY research.
