As SUNY grows its enrollment and strengthens its role in local, regional, and global economies, it is important to recognize the costs associated with increasing our impact, like the need to maintain strong infrastructure. This support ensures that the growth is sustainable in the long-run and increases the benefits to existing programs, people, and systems.
To continually develop SUNY most efficiently, the SUNY Construction Fund was established. Celebrating 50 years this year, the office’s main mission is to renovate existing buildings and ensure that all new buildings meet sustainability standards (LEED certified, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).
As hundreds of thousands of students return to campus this month to begin another exciting semester of college, many will have the opportunity to explore new facilities, like residence halls, athletic facilities, and academic buildings.
See a few examples of what you may expect to see on your SUNY campus this fall and in the near future after the jump!
Interview With A: A video series where we talk with real SUNY students and faculty on their experience, achievements, and research at any of SUNY’s 64 campuses in New York State.
David Campbell, an instructor at SUNY Cobleskill and University at Albany alumnus, was recently named the best culinary educator in the Northeast by the American Culinary Foundation. Mr. Campbell is working on expanding SUNY Cobleskill’s culinary class offerings and incorporating current technology trends in his courses. He recently took over management of SUNY Cobleskill’s coffee shop, Coby’s, and turned it into a student-run restaurant, all while working on enriching the College’s culinary curriculum. In this #IWA, Mr. Campbell tells us about his experience as a culinary instructor, his aspirations, and shares some tips for prospective chefs with the Generation SUNY Team.

SUNY Mascot Madness is all about SUNY engagement; students, fans, alumni, and community members rally together to boost their favorite SUNY mascot up. But what’s the reasoning behind two hundred thousand votes cast in 2013?
As we approach the end of this year’s competition (which you still have some time to vote in if you haven’t already), we compiled the best mascot quotes from their profiles to explore the differences in personalities between the mascots. After all, who would have otherwise known that some North Country mascots have a longing to meet? Or how each of the 30 mascots joined their SUNY campus? Just like SUNY students, our mascots are diverse, energetic, and passionate!
SUNY Chancellor Zimpher announced this month that 13 SUNY campuses have been named to the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, which recognizes colleges and universities who achieve meaningful, measureable outcomes in the communities they serve throughout the nation and show a clear commitment to community service and service learning.
