SUNY New Paltz hosted New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli on Monday, April 10, for a tour of campus and a series of meetings to learn more about the College, discuss important issues in New York public higher education and share updates about the state pension system with CSEA-affiliated staff.

The comptroller was invited to campus by Anthony Adamo in Facilities Mangement, who serves as Local President for CSEA employees at New Paltz.

Comptroller DiNapoli began the day with a meeting with College President Donald P. Christian and other administrative staff members, which served as a primer on recent happenings at New Paltz and broader issues affecting the College’s students and employees.

The group then toured campus facilities including Science Hall, Wooster Hall, the Smiley Arts Building and the Hudson Valley Advanced Manufacturing Center.

Following the tour, Comptroller DiNapoli spoke with CSEA-affiliated staff about the state pension system at their general interest meeting in the Student Union Multipurpose Room.

“SUNY New Paltz is a leading higher education and economic resource in the Hudson Valley,” said New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. “I appreciated the opportunity to visit and learn more about the College, and speak with the president and the many campus staff members represented by CSEA who contribute much to the success of the institution.”

As New York State Comptroller, DiNapoli manages the state pension fund and oversees the spending practices of all state agencies, including those in place at SUNY colleges and universities.
