SUNY Value!link to the Kiplinger report
"Kiplinger's Personal Finance" has once again highlighted a significant number of SUNY schools in its Best Values in Public Colleges report. "State governments...have cut funding for higher education. Meanwhile,enrollment at state institutions has spiked as more students go public and more people overall seekcollegedegrees."

"The schools in our top 100 best values in public colleges and universities -- led by ... Binghamton University (SUNY) for out-of-state value -- continue to deliver strong academics at reasonable prices." Nine other SUNYs appear on the list, making New York the state with the largest number of entries.

"I am thrilled to see SUNY Geneseo again in the top of the Kiplinger's Best Values for Public Colleges! With its outstanding academics, friendly and beyond brilliant faculty, and quaint college town atmosphere it is a great place to spend the memorable college years. I absolutely love it there." link to Kiplinger article

graffiti at PotsdamA Graffito Moment at Potsdam
"Every semester’s end for the past several years, Keith and I have set up Stressbusters — games, toys, decorations, candy — in our lobby to give students a way to blow off steam during the cram of finals week.

This year, we added a call to help us graffiti the stairwells to the basement. Keith suggested it, and I figured, why not? Worst case scenario is that they don’t show up, or paint ugly things we don’t like,and so… we paint the whole thing white and it’s STILL nicer than when we started. And who knows what we’d get?"more Potsdam graffiti

Buffalo State College library honoredlink to the E.H. Butler library
Buffalo State College's E.H. Butler Library is the Western New York Library Resources Council' Outstanding Library for 2009.

Overheard at a SUNY Strategic Planning Conversation
"Already have excellent, powerful examples of how the [SUNY] system can work: SLN, Study abroad and SUNYConnect."

"SUNYConnect is an excellent example for using system resources within the 64-campus system; we need to mirror this type of resources to create other powerful system-wide tools."
