Steady Moono, the president of Schenectady County Community College, has received a six-year contract extension.

Moono’s new contract is through June 30, 2023. He started in 2015 and is in the second year of a three-year contract. The community college’s board voted unanimously on Monday on the decision to extend the contract.

“These past two years have been very fulfilling,” Moono said in a prepared statement. “I think we have done some really good work, and we have moved the college along in a positive direction with a number of significant accomplishments.”

Last year, Moono outlined five areas of focus for the community college. That includes student access and success, physical and non-physical infrastructure, innovative programs, community partnerships and financial stability.

Some of those innovative programs, including non-credit certificates in craft brewing and health care, help fuel the region’s workforce.

Moono put together a strategic plan when he took over as president, which included his five focus areas, as well as ways to strengthen student advising and to boost retention rates.

Schenectady County Community College is the fourth-largest school in the Albany area. It had 5,981 students enrolled in the fall semester. It has 41 associate degree programs, 16 certificate programs and five bachelor’s degree programs with SUNY Delhi.

The community college also recently signed a transfer agreement with the University at Albany for 46 programs.
