JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) — The new State University of New York chancellor visited Jamestown Community College on Monday. 

John King, who was appointed to the role in December, visited SUNY JCC as part of an effort to tour each of the 64 SUNY institutions across New York State. 

“We are honored to show Chancellor King our ability to make education accessible for both traditional and non-traditional learners,” said Daniel DeMarte, JCC president in a statement. “This fits well into his vision of ensuring there’s a place for every student within SUNY.”  

Chancellor King spent the morning visiting the Jamestown Campus while chatting with student ambassadors and JCC’s president.  

He toured the Manufacturing Technology Institute where he observed an Industrial Maintenance Technician class. He also visited residence halls and dropped by the Nursing department. 

Furthermore, the chancellor met with faculty and staff to discuss how SUNY can support the college, and closed out the morning with members of the JCC’s President’s Cabinet.  

“We are committed to helping more New Yorkers enroll and succeed in getting their college degree or credential and to advancing excellence and equity across the system,” King said in a statement. “Every New Yorker should know that SUNY is a place where they can gain skills, and gain access to opportunity.”
