A New President For Alfred State College

January 27, 2022

The SUNY Board of Trustees recently appointed Dr. Steven A. Mauro as President of Alfred State College (ASC). The statement was announced by the Board of Trustees and Chancellor Stanley, and this becomes effective March 28, 2022. “The Alfred State community couldn’t be happier,” said Alfred State College Council Chair Patricia K. Fogarty. “I am personally delighted to have Dr. Mauro, a native of Niagara Falls, now coming to make Alfred State his home. Starting before Dr. Skip Sullivan’s retirement last June, a dedicated and experienced search committee spent months evaluating candidates in a nationwide search. During this time, we have been so incredibly fortunate to have the steady hand of Dr. John Anderson leading ASC. Having served as our president from 2008 to 2013, he’s very familiar with faculty, staff, alumni, and employers. John has assisted several colleges during presidential transitions and is an expert in this work. He has the college community prepared to welcome Steven. Getting to know Dr. Mauro from interviews and his visit to campus, I believe he is an innovator, educational entrepreneur, and able to lead many initiatives including academic programming, recruitment, retention, fundraising and so much more. He combines these attributes with an overwhelming dedication to college students and their future.”

Incoming President Dr. Mauro said, “Higher education is at the forefront of ensuring success and opportunities essential to professional and personal development. It is therefore imperative that every person who wishes to seek out higher education can do so in a way that is equitable and encouraged. This dedication to students and their education is precisely what I observed at Alfred State College. As a SUNY alumnus myself, who believes in the promise of higher education, I look forward to continuing and advancing that momentum and working with Alfred State’s faculty, staff, and students. My thanks to the SUNY Board of Trustees, Chancellor Stanley, the College Council of Alfred State, and all those involved in the search process across SUNY for this opportunity.”
