The president of SUNYIT is stepping down.

Wolf Yeigh, who has served as the college’s president since 2008 and is its fifth since the college started, is leaving SUNYIT for the University of Washington Bothell, where he will serve as Chancellor.

Though he begins his new job on September 1st, Yeigh says before he leaves, he will work with his cabinet, the provost and others “to ensure a smooth leadership transition.”

In a written statement posted to the school’s website earlier this afternoon, Yeigh had nice things to say about his time in Marcy.

“Together, we have accomplished much, but a lot of work remains to be done,” Yeigh wrote. “For me, the last five years have revealed only a part of SUNYIT’s enormous potential—and it is important that what we have started together continues long after I am gone.”

Since joining SUNYIT five years ago Yeigh has overseen several projects, including the construction of three buildings and the launch of several academic programs.

He also played a vital role in establishing the recent partnership with the University of Albany’s College of Nanoscale and Engineering.

There has been no word yet on who is in the running to replace him, though he says the College Council will play a role in identifying worthy candidates.
