Dr. Jim Malatras

ALBANY Congregation Beth Emeth will hold its annual sisterhood/brotherhood brunch “virtually” on Sunday, March 14, at 10 a.m. The event, which is open to the community, will feature Rabbi Scott Shpeen in conversation with Dr. Jim Malatras, chancellor of the State University of New York. 

Malatras was named the 14th chancellor of The State University of New York on Aug. 21, 2020. Prior to his role leading the SUNY system, he served as the fifth president of SUNY Empire State College and as president of the Rockefeller Institute of Government. Malatras has held several high-ranking positions in New York State government, including director of state operations to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, where he managed the day-to-day operation of state government and served as the administration’s point person on policy development and implementation.
