{Excerpt] Subject to the approval of the NYS Senate, the Governor appoints 15 people to the 18 person SUNY Board of Trustees. The other three members are the nonvoting presidents of the statewide 4-year and 2-year SUNY campus faculty governance bodies and the president of the statewide SUNY student governance unit. The latter is a voting member, however as I shall argue below, I believe that whether these 3 members can vote is almost irrelevant to the roles they play and their importance as board members.
