Throughout its 65-year history, SUNY has awarded tens of thousands of degrees and certificates across New York State and in conjunction with partners across the global landscape. SUNY has grown from a collection of colleges separated and scattered through villages, towns, and cities to a diverse system of institutions that impact New Yorkers (and Americans) at an immeasurable level.
