SUNY Chancellor John B. King, Jr., and his team visited the SUNY Geneseo campus on January 30, as part of his tour of all 64 SUNY campuses. King and his team started the morning by meeting briefly with President Denise A. Battles and members of the President’s Cabinet, leading to a set of student-focused sessions with involvement by faculty and staff. Battles had an opportunity to highlight Geneseo’s Equity-Centered Honors College vision to the chancellor, who later was accompanied by SUNY Trustees Robert Duffy and Keith Landa.

King toured Geneseo’s campus, being introduced to Amy Sheldon ’90, chair of the College Senate, and Alexander Ruiz ’24, president of the Student Association during his time on campus. He visited with students and faculty from the Student Managed Investment Fund in the School of Business’ Edward Pettinella ’73 Trading Room, as well as faculty and students working with the Pelletron accelerator in the Integrated Science Center. He also spent time with students in the Multicultural Center and the MacVittie College Union.

Geneseo is the sixth campus the chancellor has visited since taking on the role on January 9.
