Historical Note

The following was taken from the SUNY website at

The nation’s largest comprehensive public university system, The State University of New York (SUNY), was established in 1948. Since its founding, the SUNY system has evolved to meet the changing needs of New York’s students, communities, and workforce. SUNY initially represented a consolidation of 29 unaffiliated institutions, including 11 teachers colleges.

Today, the system includes 64 schools, a mix of 29 state-operated campuses and five statutory colleges, including research universities, liberal arts colleges, specialized and technical colleges, health science centers, land-grant colleges, and 30 community colleges. These institutions offer programs as varied as ceramics engineering, philosophy, fashion design, optometry, maritime studies, law, medical education, and everything in between. The University also operates hospitals and numerous research institutes.
