SUNY Oswego President Deborah F. Stanley announced today that she has withdrawn her name as a candidate for the presidency of Old Dominion University.
Stanley commented that she made her decision after carefully weighing professional and family considerations. “I was honored to have had the opportunity to thoroughly explore the presidency there,” she said.
Stanley, who has served as president of Oswego for the past 13 years, said she remains fully engaged in the many exciting projects under way at SUNY Oswego. These initiatives include the development of innovative and distinctive new academic programs, a $110 million state-of-the art sciences complex, and the new residential village currently under construction.
Stanley said, “I look forward to continuing to work closely with the New York State Legislature, business, industry and our alumni to gather additional support for the college and the Central New York region.”
