Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement from SUNYAB Council Chair Jeremy Jacobs, departing UB president John Barclay Simpson adds the following:
I was pleased to learn that the presidential search process is moving along well. Following discussions with SUNY officials and University Council Chairman Jeremy Jacobs, I have agreed to continue to serve as president for a limited period of time beyond January 15th while the search process moves toward a conclusion.
John B. Simpson
Guess he might as well, since there is no interim president, and the secretive process of choosing a leader for the local public university has not yet concluded.
Besides, the family timber business is running fine without him.
