A Message from the President
In the academic year 2017-2018, the College created and adopted our new, transformational Strategic Plan that encompasses all SUNY Cobleskill has to offer. As a community we achieved clarity of purpose and defined our vision, our mission, and our values. We call all learners to grow, to sustain, and to renew the world and its citizens, while honoring our founding vision: “Education is the hope of the world.”
Our Strategic Plan was created to become part of a greater plan, measured by the relevance of our work with and for our students. We cultivate our students to become agents of positive disruption and recognize we are all contributing to a larger enterprise to sustain a vibrant and effective society across all boundaries.
SUNY Cobleskill has been customizing learning since our first class entered in 1916. Today we continue to expand access to degrees and credentials, on and off our campus, through our College in High School programs, such as Ag-PTECH, degree completion programs at community colleges, graduate degree agreements within SUNY and beyond, and career-building certificate programs for learners of all ages and educational backgrounds.
This year we extend the reach and impact of our College by advancing our alignment with SUNY, sharing commitments to initiatives in the areas of research and innovation, individualized education on a State-wide scale, a sustainable SUNY, and investing in the future. Through the Institute for Rural Vitality at SUNY Cobleskill, and reimagined infrastructure, we are proudly debuting a retail store and café in our historic Carriage House. A new grant to test our rotary gasifier has potential to greatly impact the renewable energy sector. Through a vast network of partnerships, and our individualized approach to education, SUNY Cobleskill provides countless opportunities to our students to enhance their abilities and realize professional success. From listening sessions by the U.S. House Committee on Agriculture for insights on the new farm bill, to the National Intelligence Council twice visiting our community of forward-thinkers for a shared dialogue of global trends, SUNY Cobleskill is in the spotlight.
We are poised and focused at SUNY Cobleskill to achieve our full potential as the premier educational institution of agriculture and technology. I invite you to join us on our journey.
