State University of New York Chairman H. Carl McCall April 10, announced his retirement. "After ten years of service, I have decided to retire...I believe that it is time for me to pursue other interests and allow new vision to take SUNY to even higher heights. I want to thank the governor, trustees, faculty and New York's future leaders — our students, for their endless support as I have served in such a consequential office." In addition to his tenure with SUNY, McCall served the state of New York in a variety of roles, including state Senator, Comptroller, and U.N. Ambassador, over a 50-year period. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said in a statement, "...Chairman McCall is a friend and a quintessential public servant who dedicated his entire career to improving the lives of others...His accomplishments are numerous, but he will long be remembered for his deep commitment to equality, diversity and access to education to ensure New York's students, especially from underserved areas, are provided with a high quality and affordable education."
