This past Saturday, SUNY Oneonta's eighth President was inaugurated at the Alumni Field House on campus - Dr. Barbara Jean Morris.  Over 100 delegates, faculty, staff, alumni and students participated in the ceremony.

To honor Dr. Morris' inauguration, the 'Yes We Can' food drive took place on campus resulting in 1,556 pounds of food, half of which was donated by students. Sixty percent of the donated food will go to Oneonta-area food pantries with the other 40% going to the campus food shelf at Hunt Union.

Another donation related initiative called "SUNY's Got Your Back" to honor President Morris' commitment to education on issues of violence, took place on the Academic Quad on campus this past Friday to collect donations of personal care items which will go in "comfort kits" for victims and survivors of violence.
