A Message from the President


  Welcome to SUNY Oswego. Our college is a place of thriving intellectual life and exciting academic pursuits that enrich those who join us in this community - a residential learning environment filled with new challenges, friendships, and opportunities. At SUNY Oswego, we foster intentional learning and ethical development that prepare our students and graduates to contribute intellectual capital, skills and understanding to the world in their personal, professional and civic lives.

  Together we build institutional strength through our commitment to access and growing diversity, our intellectual curiosity and technological adaptability, our stewardship of abundant and stable resources and our well-conceived and maintained academic facilities and residential community along the inspiring shore of Lake Ontario.

  The spirit of our students, the talents and dedication of our faculty, the care and concern provided by the administrative, professional, and auxiliary supporting staff cannot be captured in this online catalog—and yet each is essential to the ethos of SUNY Oswego.

  We believe you will find that SUNY Oswego is a place of excellence with much to offer through its programs and its people. We are proud of our hallmark of strength, quality and value, and the role our college plays to ensure collective prosperity, equity, resilience and success for all - that is “The Oswego Way.”


—Deborah F. Stanley, President
