Leader in Higher Education

Onondaga Community College Political Science Professor Nina Tamrowski has become an influential voice in New York State’s Higher Education system. In late June she was sworn-in as a member of the SUNY Board of Trustees. The position goes hand-in-hand with her being the newly elected president of the Faculty Council of Community Colleges. “I am privileged to be in this role representing community college faculty,” Tamrowski said. “Faculty expertise in determining curriculum and academic standards is ever-present in this model of shared governance. Only through shared governance can we attain the best educational policies for our students and communities.”

Tamrowski has been a professor at OCC since 1991. Besides teaching numerous courses she also coordinates student internships with local government and political offices.
