SUNY, Shared Services, and Performance

With Chancellor Zimpher and the Board of Trustees talking about Shared Services across SUNY, or more particular within regions of SUNY, I think this raises an interesting opportunity.To start, I am not against the concept of shared services as a starting point.  I would like to compete and concentrate on the higher-value concepts at my institution, and leave more mundane and compliance chores to the system.  However, I think there are examples of shared services that have existed for years, and…See More

Thoughts on "part-time work from home" for a web developer?
