Tremayne Price

Tremayne Price, B.A.’12, has been installed as president of the State University of New York Student Assembly for 2013-14. Price, a native of Elmira, N.Y., earned a bachelor’s degree in
public policy and management from UAlbany. He is currently pursuing a master’s in educational administration and policy studies at the University.

The Student Assembly president, elected annually in the spring by his or her peers across the SUNY system, heads a body committed to empowering SUNY students throughout New York State and nationally, and to ensuring the highest quality of student life on each of the system’s 64 campuses. As president, Price serves as a member of the SUNY Board of Trustees, with full voting privileges, and as a voting member of the board for the Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC).

In congratulating Price, Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher noted, “Trey brings leadership experience to the post, as well as a deeper understanding of how students can get the most out of their higher education and help shape SUNY for future generations.”
