President Deborah Stanley to Retire After 26 Years Leading SUNY Oswego

Go Back

OSWEGO — SUNY Oswego President Deborah F. Stanley will retire at the end of the year after more than a quarter-century leading the lakeside campus.

Originally founded in 1861 by Edward Austin Sheldon, SUNY Oswego installed Stanley as its 10th president in 1995. She will retire with a total of 44 years in service to the Laker community, officials said.

In a letter to the campus community released Monday afternoon, Stanley said she’s “incredibly fortunate.”

“It is beyond a blessing to have been allowed to contribute leadership to, and collaborate broadly on, the inspirations and initiatives that have lifted our work and produced amazing outcomes for our college, our students and our communities,” Stanley wrote.

Stanley holds degrees from Syracuse University, including a law degree. She started teaching business classes at SUNY Oswego shortly after her law school graduation, which started her on a professional path that would eventually earn her the top job at Oswego County’s only four-year institution of higher learning.
