It was announced by State University of New York Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher that $18 million will be awarded to SUNY campuses throughout New York as a result of the university system’s Investment and Performance Fund. Campus awards will support SUNY’s Completion Agenda, which aims to boost the number of degrees awarded annually to 150,000 by bringing evidence-based programs to scale. The fund was established with an investment by New York in the 2015-16 State Budget, the first-of-its-kind.
“These awards are a remarkable sample of what SUNY campuses are prepared to do in order to help more students complete their degree,” said Chancellor Zimpher. “Whether it’s working with area high schools to get students ready for college, supporting students at risk of falling behind, or providing an applied learning opportunity to ensure career success, SUNY is committed to improving student outcomes at every stage.”
Chancellor Zimpher also launched the Stand with SUNY campaign in November to secure increased state investment for the system in the upcoming 2016-17 State Budget. In addition to growing the Investment and Performance Fund, the goals of the campaign are to build base funding for all campuses and extend NYSUNY 2020.
An approved PIP was required for receipt of an Investment and Performance Fund award for state-operated campuses and for receipt of NY Jobs Linkage funding for community colleges. These plans were approved by Chancellor Zimpher on behalf of the SUNY Board of Trustees in December and can be found online at: www.suny.edu/PerformancePlans.
