ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras launched SUNY’s first-ever Student Advocate Fellowship Program on Friday. The program will be used to recruit recent SUNY graduates and current seniors to join SUNY’s executive leadership team.
The hope is that the recent grads will help develop student-driven policies across the 64 campuses.
The Student Advocate Fellow will act as an advisor to Chancellor Malatras and other executive leaders on some of the important issues in higher education, including but not limited to:
- Academic quality and success
- Racial and social justice
- Mental health services
- Resources for students with disabilities
- Food insecurity
The Student Advocate Fellow will report directly to SUNY Student Advocate and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs John Graham and serve a two year appointment. The application process will be unveiled at a later date for those who are interested.
