Post-Kaloyeros, Interim Head Named For SUNY Poly
The State University of New York Board of Trustees have named an interim president for SUNY Poly to replace the embattled former president Alain Kaloyeros, who is facing federal bid-rigging charges. Dr. Bahgat Sammakia was named interim president on Thursday. He was previously at SUNY Binghamton and is expected to take over on Dec. 1. Kaloyeros is embroiled in bid-rigging and bribery scandals tied to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s upstate economic development programs. Cuomo has said he knew nothing of the alleged acts.
