Welcome to the eCIO forum on Executive Voices. This forum and podcast series is to share the executive perspective on issues and trends in higher education. The interviews conducted also present ideas and real world examples of how College and University executives have engaged and partnered with their campus CIOs on solving and addressing these issues and trends.

Today I’m with Dr. Szafran who is the College President at the State University of NY – SUNY Canton. Dr. Szafran has been president at SUNY Canton since 2014. He is the former vice president for academic affairs and professor of chemistry at Southern Polytechnic State University in the University System of Georgia, a position he held from 2005-2014.
