SUNY University Faculty Senate Reps Visit SUNY Canton


SUNY University Faculty Senate President Keith Landa and SUNY Parliamentarian Henry Flax visited SUNY Canton Oct. 6 and 7 to meet with campus leaders, faculty, staff and students.

As SUNY Canton continues to revise its faculty governance bylaws, President Landa outlined the pros and cons of several current models at different SUNYs and lead a productive open forum to hear questions and concerns about the best ways to move forward.

SUNY University Faculty Senate President Keith Landa meets with SUNY Canton faculty in the Financial Literacy Center.

“We are all very grateful for Keith and Henry’s generosity,” said Matt Burnett, SUNY Canton’s Presiding Officer. “They have been very invested in listening to our concerns, looking at our bylaws, and generally making themselves available to us. Their SUNY-wide perspective, years of experience, and calm, diplomatic approach have been so helpful as we consider ways to invigorate our shared governance process here at SUNY Canton.”
