Chancellor Johnson’s inauguration and celebratory dinner will bring together leaders from higher education, government and the private sector, to celebrate this milestone in SUNY’s history and to raise support for the SUNY Impact Foundation. The proceeds from the event will create two unique opportunities that will enable deserving students to pursue and complete their education: the establishment of a Chancellor's Fellowship Fund, and the seeding of a Near Degree Completion Grant Fund.
