College Announces Other Leadership Changes
The SUNY Oswego community shares its deep gratitude with the following individuals for their many years of service, and welcomes our new leaders.
In April, Nick Lyons retired from his 19-year tenure as vice president for administration and finance. Associate Vice President for Finance and Budget Vicki Cafalone Furlong ’08 M’10 moved into the role as interim vice president. During her 10 years at Oswego, Furlong has also proven herself a true team player, assuming the responsibilities of admissions director (in addition to her finance role) while the college searched for our current executive director of enrollment management Ebony Dixon. Furlong now also serves on the Oswego College Foundation Board of Directors.
School of Education Dean Pamela Michel retired this summer, having served the
past 10 years as dean, successfully leading the school’s reaccreditation processes and serving on the school’s faculty since 1988, including as chair of the curriculum and instruction department for more than 10 years. Dr. Laura Spenceley was appointed interim dean for the School of Education. She previously served as the associate dean for the Office of Graduate Studies, and is an associate professor in the Department of Counseling and Psychological Services. The college will begin a national search for the permanent dean of the School of Education in the fall.
Wendy McManus began her tenure as the new director of Intercollegiate Athletics on Aug. 1, filling the position vacated by Sue Viscomi, who retired. McManus comes to SUNY Oswego with more than 17 years of administrative and coaching experience and a proven track record in maximizing the student-athlete experience and developing, leading and motivating successful and highly competitive athletic programs. She most recently served as the director of athletics at Elmhurst University (Illinois), where she led and managed 20 varsity sports, 80 employees and 500 student-athletes.
