ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Dr. Alain Kaloyeros has been appointed the founding president of the State University of New York’s Polytechnic Institute, where he’s been chief executive officer since its creation.

The appointment was one of four announced by SUNY on Tuesday. Marion Terenzio was named president of SUNY Cobleskill and Denise Battles president of SUNY Geneseo. Cathleen McColgin was approved as president of Herkimer County Community College.

The Polytechnic Institute in Albany was formed by the merger of the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, which Kaloyeros helped establish, and SUNY Institute of Technology.

Kaloyeros will make $801,700, including a $490,000 salary and $311,700 for his work promoting research.

SUNY says Terenzio’s annual salary will be $195,000. Battles’ salary will be $240,000 and McColgin will be paid $168,000.
