Anthony Winn, SUNY New Paltz alumni advisory council member, has been appointed as Special Assistant to Black Studies and will be teaching Blacks and American Law this semester. Winn will be acting as a consultant and mentor to students and faculty to help facilitate the growth of the Black Studies Department.

In addition to this position at SUNY New Paltz, Winn works for Nos Quedamos, a South Bronx-based nonprofit housing and social service provider as their chief operating officer. Winn has been a local resident of New Paltz since February 2015 and but still continues his position in Nos Quedamos.

“Teaching in the Black Studies department is a bucket-list achievement— I had always wanted the opportunity to contribute in a teaching capacity,” Winn said. “While many of the faces are new, the spirit of the student body and its conscious engagement with the issues of our times feel very familiar and comfortable.”

Additional information about Winn’s career and his involvement here at SUNY New Paltz can be found on the college’s online news page.
