The Head Of The New York State University System Is Leaving Her Post Next Year

06.01.16 | Bob Price

SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher will exit her half-a-million dollar post in June of 2017.

Zimpher has served as head of the 64-campus SUNY system for seven years.

The 69 year-old says she wants to give a one year notice so the board of trustees has sufficient time to find a replacement.

Zimpher has been praised for boosting enrollment at SUNY schools, but has also faced criticism.  Tuition has gone up about 30% under her watch.
