Buffalo State President Katherine Conway-Turner presented highlights from the 2014-2015 academic year as well as an inspiring look at the future of the institution with emphasis on the strategic planning process during her fall forum address Tuesday. Faculty, staff, and students joined Conway-Turner for the address in the Performing Arts Center at Rockwell Hall.
“Last year, my first year at Buffalo State, was fast paced and full of many exciting and memorable moments. The year included the sea of orange at Convocation, the spectacular inaugural week activities, and many conversations completed, projects developed, and programs executed. It was also filled with lobbying events as I joined colleagues across the SUNY system to appeal for additional state funds to support our college community. It was a memorable and significant year. The normal year’s events were punctuated in mid-May with Commencement ceremonies that brimmed with joy, laughter, and tears as our 2,500 graduating students transitioned to become the newest members of our Buffalo State alumni body of over 100,000.”
Additional 2014-2015 accomplishments included:

I challenge us all to reach for the stars and dare to be distinct.”
