President Satish K. Tripathi yesterday praised the passage of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s NYSUNY 2020 bill as a major accomplishment in the pursuit of academic excellence at UB and for economic development efforts vital to Western New York.
“Today the university and all of Western New York share in an achievement that puts our community on a path toward a promising future,” Tripathi said. “I extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation to all those who helped make this possible: Gov. Cuomo, the Western New York delegation, Senate and Assembly leadership, business, labor and community leaders, and UB alumni, faculty, staff and students.
“We have worked together successfully over the past several years to make the case that a stronger university will benefit students, families and all of Western New York.”
