Celebration remarks
In 1992 the Alfred P. Sloan foundation launched a new initiative to fund projects for developing college-level courses using digital networking technology the purpose of which was to explore educational alternatives for people who wanted to pursue higher education but who could not easily attend regularly scheduled college classes. Conceived by Ralph Gomory and administered by Frank Mayadas, the Anytime, Any place learning program awarded 350 grants totaling more than $70 million. Twenty years later, online learning and its off shoot blended learning have become a basic aspect of American higher education.
From 1994- 1998 SUNY received a series of grants totaling 4.1 million dollars from the Sloan Foundation that resulted in the SUNY Learning Network and 20 years of excellence and innovation in online teaching and learning at SUNY.
Today we celebrate this anniversary and honor the campuses, staff, faculty and our special guest that have all contributed to and played significant roles in this significant achievement.

I am honored to introduce our keynote speaker on this auspicious occasion and thrilled that she was able to be here to celebrate with us our 20th anniversary, to introduce Open SUNY to our community, and to be with us at the first official meeting of the new Open SUNY Center of Online Teaching Excellence.

In June 2009, Nancy L. Zimpher became the 12th Chancellor of the State University of New York, the nation’s largest comprehensive system of higher education.

Dr. Zimpher is active in numerous state and national education organizations, and is a recognized leader in the areas of teacher preparation, urban education, and university-community engagement. She is co-founder of StriveTogether, a national network of innovative systemic partnerships that holistically address challenges across the education pipeline.

Prior to coming to SUNY, Dr. Zimpher served as president of the University of Cincinnati, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and executive dean of the Professional Colleges and dean of the College of Education at The Ohio State University.

Before her keynote address, Chancellor Zimpher will make a special presentation.

Please welcome chancellor Zimpher.
