Chancellor Syverud to Chair Atlantic Coast Conference Council of Presidents
Syracuse University President and Chancellor Kent Syverud was named chair of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Council of Presidents for the 2019-20 academic year. The council advises the ACC on matters of common interest to the member institutions that may affect the conference as a whole.
Syverud also serves as chair of the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Ad Hoc Committee on Sports Wagering.

“The experienced leadership of our ACC member institutions is a big reason for our conference’s continued success,” says ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “I’m confident Chancellor Syverud’s vision will continue to enhance the Atlantic Coast Conference during the 2019-20 academic year.”
