The inauguration follows a long-standing tradition within the State University of New York, in which the installation of a new college president is conducted in a formal ceremony during the president’s first year in office. Dr. Nancy Zimpher, SUNY chancellor, will conduct the installation.

“Inauguration activities afford the college the opportunity to celebrate its excellence in programs and instruction, as well as its future plans, with faculty, staff, students, community members, municipal leaders and others committed to the success of the college,” Fortune said.

There will also be events at the NCCC campus in Malone.

Prior to his arrival at NCCC, Tyrell served as vice president for student affairs at Alfred State College, associate dean for student discipline and conflict resolution at MIT, associate dean of student life at Michigan Tech and held a variety of positions at SUNY New Paltz.
