The issue of a shared presidency first came up last year. In a written statement, Russell says Zimphor told her that Potsdam and Canton have been streamlining their administrations, saving money, and investing savings back into student services.
The chancellor confirmed both colleges have asked for one more year to find more efficiencies and savings.
According to Russell, Zimphor said that if both colleges want to move forward with individual presidential searches at that time, she will recommend it to the Board of Trustees.
The shared presidency plan resurfaced recently after the surprise announcement that Potsdam college president John Schwaller is stepping down. SUNY Trustees have not approved a presidential search at either school.
