SUNY Geneseo to partner with U of West Indies

SUNY College at Geneseo is one of 10 SUNY campuses taking part in an expanded partnership with the University of the West Indies, college officials announced Tuesday.

The partnership will allow the institutions to partner on research and other projects. Both SUNY and UWI have allotted seed funds to specific projects, with six selected based on feasibility.

Two of those six projects are led by faculty members at SUNY Geneseo. William Lofquist, professor of sociology, and Lisa Meyer, associate professor of sociology, are leading the project “Enhancing Citizen Security in the Caribbean.”
 
Ruel McKnight, associate professor of chemistry, will lead the project “SUNY/UWI Health-Related Research and Educational Collaborations in Natural Products and Medicinal Chemistry.”

The institutions began working together in fall 2012, signing a formal memorandum of understanding in January.
 
“Continued engagement with the international academic community is vital to New York’s competitiveness in today’s global economy,” said Carl McCall, SUNY board chairman and former state comptroller. “With New York’s diverse population and historic and ongoing ties to the Caribbean, this partnership is a natural fit for SUNY, and we look forward to working with UWI.”
