The SUNY Board of Trustees has appointed Havidán Rodríguez as the University at Albany’s 20th President.
He is the founding Provost and Executive Vice President for academic affairs at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. Rodriguez says some of his top priorities are “community engagement, with a focus on building partnerships and creating communities throughout the state and beyond.”
Rodriguez starts in mid-September. He replaces Robert Jones, who left last September to become Chancellor at the University of Illinois-Champaign/Urbana.
