ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The chancellor of New York’s public university system says the next school year will be her last at the helm.

Nancy Zimpher (ZIHM’-fur) announced Tuesday her exit plan from the State University of New York system that she has led for seven years.

SUNY Board Chairman H. Carl McCall says a national search for her successor will begin soon. He credited Zimpher with making SUNY a national model of higher education and positioning the 64-campus system as an economic engine in the state.

The 69-year-old Zimpher says she will spend her final year as chancellor focused on increasing college completion, improving teacher preparation programs and securing an extension of SUNY 2020, a program of tuition increases and investment in SUNY.
