Teaching and learning will always be at the core of our educationalmission. Central to this mission are students fully engaged in learning experiences inside and outside the classroom, and a faculty community that is active, accessible, up to date across disciplines and informed in the very best practices of how students learn and understand.
Research shows that students learn best by doing. For this reason, a major goal of our campaign is to expand experiential learning for our students. Funds raised will support student-faculty collaborations outside the classroom, such as research and creative activities, field study experiences, attendance at professional conferences and internships. In addition to facilitating learning, these experiences will better position our students for graduate school and employment.
Every day, SUNY Oneonta competes with other top colleges and universities from across the country to attract and retain the very best faculty. Possibilities Full of Promise will raise gifts and grants to expand professional development for our faculty allowing them greater opportunities to pursue research and scholarship, attend conferences and intensive trainings, and stay current and relevant in their fields. This, in turn, will lead to knowledge and benefits to society through research and scholarship, increased retention of talented faculty, advances in the teaching profession and, most importantly, long-lasting learning for all our students.
