As we count down to the new year, we thought we’d share some of the SUNY news you may have missed during 2012.
Last month, the Carnegie Corporation awarded SUNY a $500,000 grant to support the SUNY Works initiative. The funds will be used for bringing cooperative education to college campuses across the state.
As part of the program, campuses have developed partnerships with businesses and employers to combine coursework and job training. Companies that have partnered with SUNY include Global Foundries, General Electric, IBM, Motorola, and Chevron.
