Distinguished Administrator, Alumnus Named Interim Fundraising Chief
PLATTSBURGH, NY __ Dr. E. Thomas Moran, former provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, has been named interim vice president for Institutional Advancement at the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh.
Moran will replace Nancy Dailey, vice president for Institutional Advancement, who
announced her resignation effective Dec. 30.
Moran, a 1969 SUNY Plattsburgh graduate, has spent most of his career at Plattsburgh, serving in various administrative capacities. In 1999, he left his post as provost and vice president for Academic Affairs to launch the Institute for Ethics in Public Life, that in response to the College's Strategic Plan to cultivate in students the qualities of engaged, committed and ethically responsive citizenship. In 2002, he was named a SUNY distinguished service professor because of his service, teaching, scholarship and contributions to SUNY, its students and community.
SUNY Plattsburgh President John Ettling said he chose Moran after consulting with his senior administrative staff.
"Dr. Moran is widely admired on campus and in the community," Ettling said. "His administrative experience in managing large and complex organizations, along with his knowledge and understanding of the College, will serve the Office of Institutional Advancement well."
The Office of Institutional Advancement is responsible for alumni relations, fundraising through the Plattsburgh College Foundation, public relations and marketing.
Moran will continue in his capacity as director of the Institute for Ethics in Public Life while the College launches a nationwide search for a permanent successor for the vice president position. A search committee will be formed prior to the end of the fall semester.
