Last year, SUNY launched its shared services initiative to reduce administrative costs and direct resources toward institution and student services. Over the next three years, SUNY campuses will shift at least 5 percent of their administrative spending to academics and student services for a $100 million investment in instruction.
"These critical first steps toward implementing common sense and cost effective shared services place SUNY Plattsburgh and Clinton Community College ahead of the curve," said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. "By identifying efficiencies and working together these campuses will maintain access and affordability while expanding services that directly benefit current and prospective students. Plattsburgh and Clinton are to be highly commended for embracing SUNY's systemness and leveraging their capacity as partners within the system and their shared community."
