SUNY Oswego president expresses sadness on loss of Dr. Weinstein

SUNY Oswego President Deborah F. Stanley today expressed the college community’s sorrow on receiving the terrible news of the death of former political science professor Warren Weinstein while being held captive by Al Qaeda in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border region.

Dr. Weinstein left Oswego in 1979 to work with U.S. AID on behalf of people in developing countries, concentrating on economic development.

President Stanley said: “Dr. Weinstein devoted his life to making the world a better place. He left us to serve others in some of the world’s most impoverished and troubled regions. His life was an inspiration that will not die. Our hearts go out to his family, friends and colleagues.”
