SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse University President and Chancellor Kent Syverud will chair the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Council of Presidents for the 2019-20 academic year.

The council advises the ACC Council of Presidents on matters of common interest to the member institutions that may affect the conference as a whole, Syracuse said in a Thursday news release.

In addition to that role, Syverud also serves as chair of the NCAA’s ad hoc committee on sports wagering, the school noted.

“I look forward to working with my fellow chancellors and presidents to support the ACC’s critical priorities, including the launch of the ACC Network. It represents great potential for our member schools to gain broader exposure for all of our programs and student-athletes,” Syverud said in the release.

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