"I am honored to join the Farmingdale community as Associate Provost, and I look forward to tackling the meaningful work ahead with Provost Joseph and the rest of her team in Academic Affairs.” Says Malone. “As a product of public higher education myself, I understand the sacred obligation public colleges like FSC hold to transform the lives of our students and to serve the broader society through our mission.  We do that best when we make good on the Farmingdale motto: Let each become all one is capable of being. And I am grateful for this opportunity to help our students and faculty reach their potential, and reach for greatness."
