Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

Au­drey Pot­tinger, a SUNY Ul­ster grad­u­ate and im­me­di­ate past stu­dent trustee, has been named to the Class of 2016 SUNYCON Fel­lows.

As one of this group of stu­dents and fac­ulty from through­out the state univer­sity sys­tem, Pot­tinger will par­tic­i­pate in a con­fer­ence aimed at sus­tain­ing the SUNY higher-ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor.

Stu­dents were cho­sen for their in­ter­est in in­no­va­tion in higher ed­u­ca­tion and will par­tic­i­pate in ex­clu­sive events dur­ing an an­nual con­fer­ence and share what they learn about the theme, “The Forces Shap­ing the Fu­ture of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion,” with stu­dents and fac­ulty at their home cam­puses.

SUNY de­vel­oped SUNYCON, its crit­i­cal is­sues in higher-ed­u­ca­tion con­fer­ence se­ries, to cre­ate a fo­rum for con­ver­sa­tions about the sta­tus and fu­ture of higher ed­u­ca­tion among so­ci­ety’s stake­hold­ers — scholars, aca­demic lead­ers, busi­ness and in­dus­try, and pol­icy mak­ers.
