SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher included a brief visit to MCEER on June 24, 2009 as part of her tour of the University at Buffalo and other SUNY campuses around the state. Harvey Stenger, Dean, School of Engineering & Applied Sciences, A. Scott Weber, Professor and Chair of the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, and MCEER’s Donald Goralski, Chief of Staff, hosted her visit and tour of UB’s Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory (SEESL). Chancellor Zimpher is a strong supporter of the University at Buffalo’s UB 2020 Flexibility and Economic Growth Act, a bill which could save New York State taxpayers millions of dollars, while providing a predictable stream of revenue to better enable the University at Buffalo to provide students with financial needs with access to a high-quality education. The bill has been approved by the NYS Senate and is under consideration by the Assembly. For more information, visit the UB 2020 website.
