SUNY Cobleskill Creates First Two Endowed Professorships in Response to SUNY Scholars of Excellence Challenge

Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson announces new professorship positions, showcasing system’s most gifted educators

Cobleskill – SUNY Cobleskill has created the SUNY system’s first two faculty endowments under the new SUNY Scholars of Excellence program, Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson announced Friday. The endowments serve to recognize the most gifted educators on SUNY’s campuses. The new endowed professorships have been established in response to the Chancellor’s challenge to create new faculty endowments, issued to all campuses during her State of the University System address in January.

“SUNY Cobleskill is proud to be the first to step up to Chancellor Johnson’s SUNY endowed professorship challenge,” says President Marion A. Terenzio. “We appreciate the Chancellor’s leadership in building a structure that will enhance the work of our faculty, foster student applied learning, and create strategic reserves for our future. In true SUNY Cobleskill style, the endowed professorships will be chosen from our own faculty through shared governance, recognizing the extraordinary work and accomplishments of our College academic enterprise.”

“We are so thrilled that SUNY Cobleskill is taking the lead on this important initiative that showcases the excellent faculty we have on our campuses,” Chancellor Johnson said. “I applaud President Terenzio and the donor, Cobleskill Auxiliary Services, for their commitment to inspiring excellence on the campus, and to the students who attend Cobleskill.”

SUNY Cobleskill will have an endowed professorship in both of its two schools. The School of Business and Liberal Arts and Sciences houses degree programs ranging from Biotechnology, to Graphic Design Technology, to Early Childhood Studies. Students in The School of Agriculture and Natural Resources are enrolled in programs in Plant Science, Animal Science, Fisheries and Wildlife, Agricultural Engineering Technology, and more.

The professorships are endowed by Cobleskill Auxiliary Services, Inc., a non-profit organization that partners with the College to provide support and services to SUNY Cobleskill students both in and out of the classroom. Coverage of this release can also be seen here.
