Before accepting her current position, Zimpher was president of the University of Cincinnati. She earns $545,000 yearly in total compensation as SUNY's chancellor.
"My relationship with community colleges has been a strong one in each of the communities I worked," Zimpher said. "This is a big answer to what ails America and the American work force.
"We will get the right blend of what SUNY stands for and what Clinton stands for and put it all together."
