SUNY Canton Announces New and More Efficient Administrative Structure

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

SUNY Canton Interim President Carli C. Schiffner today announced several departments and offices were realigned within the College’s organizational structure to better support priorities including student retention, strategic enrollment management and efficient shared services.

Some of the major changes under the new organizational structure include Athletics moving back to Student Affairs, Information Services and University Police shifting to College Administration, and Online Learning and Admissions moving under Academics.

“Canton has been a leader in SUNY’s system-wide shared service initiatives, and today’s realignment by President Schiffner mirrors our broader efforts to streamline administrative overhead so our resources can support student services and institutional priorities,” said Brian Hutzley, vice chancellor for financial services and chief financial officer for SUNY.

“These changes will result in a more effective organizational structure that will allow SUNY Canton to better address its issues and priorities moving forward,” President Schiffner said. “The restructuring of these areas will allow us to focus on student success and better align us with the model of both our SUNY counterparts and colleges and universities around the nation. This is part of the evolution of Canton as we look to continue our remarkable progress.”

Schiffner mentioned the College’s increased focus on academics and student completion as well as future opportunities to continue saving money through shared services. Last month SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam announced more than $1 million in shared services savings, and Vice President for Administration Natalie Higley expects those efforts to continue to benefit both schools.

“SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam have worked hard together to consolidate administrative services, become more efficient, and direct a larger percentage of funds toward the education of our students,” said Higley, who works for both colleges and is an example of the new shared services model. “We’ve already seen progress in areas such as payroll services and information services, and we look forward to continuing to standardize our processes and procedures for future savings.”

 

SUNY Canton Breaks All-Time Applications Record

Monday, June 11th, 2012

The College is anticipating another year of record enrollment. New students should process their deposits immediately to secure their seats in the College’s top programs.

SUNY Canton has broken its all-time record for applications for the third straight year and has received more than 6,000 applications for the first time in school history. As a result, Admissions Director Nicole Campbell is anticipating a fifth straight year of record-breaking enrollment.

SUNY Canton Applications by Year

“It’s a terrific accomplishment to sustain and build on the incredible momentum we’ve set over the past several years,” Campbell said. “We won’t have complete enrollment numbers until the semester begins, but it looks like we may top 4,000 students for the first time in school history. And while a lot of credit should go to our experienced admissions counselors, it truly is a college-wide effort and a reflection of our remarkable collective success.”

Total applicants and deposits have both increased since last year when the College shattered previous records in nearly every admissions category.

“There are a variety of reasons why our numbers continue to increase each year,” said Vice President for Advancement David M. Gerlach. “We continue to add more in-demand, career-oriented bachelor’s degrees, we have a new athletic facility, a new residence hall, and a student-first approach to everything we do. Those reasons coupled with our affordability make us more attractive to incoming students than we have ever been.”

To date, SUNY Canton has received more than 6,300 applications for the upcoming academic year, an increase of more than 20 percent from the same time last year and up almost 150 percent from just six years ago.

New students planning to begin during the Fall 2012 semester should process their deposits immediately to secure their seats in the College’s top programs.
