SUNYA has been submitted to SUNY Chancellor Clifton
Wharton for approval.
Among the reappointments expected to be passed by
Wharton, include that of Vice President for Academic
Affairs Judith Ramaley, who will become SUNYA'S first
Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs. John
Schumaker will become Vice President for Academic

He was previously Acting Vice President for Research

A nationwide search will be conducted to fill the new

No salary change will accompany Ramaley's new posi-

which states thai no New York State employee can earn
more than 98 percent of the salary of his or her

Ramaley presently earns $73,789 which is 98 percent oi
