Satish K. Tripathi expects smooth transition

By Bert Gambini


Buffalo, NY – The SUNY Board of Trustees is expected to approve the nomination of Satish K. Tripathi as the 15th President of the University at Buffalo when it meets Monday at UB's Amherst campus.

Tripathi has served as UB's Provost since 2004. As an existing member of the UB community, Tripathi said that familiarity, combined with the time he's spent working with his predecessor John Simpson, will allow him to smoothly transition into his new role.

Tripathi visited our WBFO studio Friday to sit down exclusively with Morning Edition host Bert Gambini.
