Community Impact

American public universities have a broad and fundamental commitment not only to learning, education, and scholarship, but also to serving the wider public by driving economic development through the preparation of tomorrow’s workforce, conducting research that can improve the world we live in, and even helping to solve some of society’s greatest challenges.

Each campus within the State University of New York makes many diverse contributions beyond academics to the region in which it is located. When these contributions are gathered together, we are better able to appreciate the enormous impact of SUNY on each of our communities.

The mission of the Fund is to help SUNY build - and rebuild - SUNY campuses. The outstanding campus facilities are used and enjoyed by countless students, faculty, staff, and surrounding communities, all across New York State.
