SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher is featured on the cover of the June 2014 issue of Her Life Magazine, a print publication in New York State.
The magazine highlights Zimpher’s various achievements throughout her personal and professional careers, beginning as an English teacher in a one-room schoolhouse in Missouri. She has served as the president of the University of Cincinnati, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and executive dean of the Professional Colleges and dean of the College of Education at The Ohio State University.
The three-page feature article highlights Zimpher’s sponsorship of the breakthrough New York State Master Teacher Program, which with Governor Andrew M. Cuomo seeks to bolster the teaching talent in New York State, as well as her role in co-founding the cradle-to-career initiative StriveTogther and advocating for SUNY Works, a cooperative education program that aims to empower college students to earn both college credit and income by working as interns in their chosen fields.
These innovative programs and initiatives have contributed to Zimpher’s elevation to a position of national influence–a spot, Politico regarded in January 2014, that makes her “Obama’s favorite college leader.”
Zimpher is the first female chancellor of the State University of New York, the nation’s largest comprehensive public university system, where she leads 463,000 students, 90,000 faculty and staff, and nearly 3 million alumni worldwide.
