Mission

Created in 1948, the State University of New York (SUNY) is the largest public university system in the nation with 64 campuses offering a complete range of academic, professional and vocational programs. The State University system is uniquely positioned to provide New Yorkers with access to quality postsecondary educational programs in all regions of the State.

Budget Highlights

The 2014-15 Executive Budget recommends $10.26 billion All Funds for SUNY ($2.08 billion General Fund, $7.42 billion State support, self-generated and Federal funds, and $767 million in capital funds) and projects a workforce of 43,342 consistent with 2013-14 levels.

The 2014-15 Executive Budget continues the State's commitment to provide stable and predictable funding levels for SUNY. The Executive Budget maintains a consistent level of General Fund operating support, provides additional tuition revenue authority according to a rational and predictable five-year tuition plan, recognizes the increased cost of employee benefits and continues to provide eligible students with financial assistance in the form of a Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) credit.

Stable State support levels, predictable tuition increases and additional financial assistance for students will help SUNY campuses add more faculty, decrease class sizes, increase course offerings and improve graduation rates, while providing both access and affordability to students with limited income.

The Executive Budget continues support of SUNY's 30 community colleges, maintaining base operating aid support at $2,422 per full time equivalent (FTE) student while also providing additional performance based funding through the Next Generation NY Job Linkage Program, refocusing community college vocational programs to prepare students to succeed in today's high skill economy.

The Executive Budget will also meet emerging needs in higher education by creating the nation's first College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity. In addition, a new School of Pharmacy will be established at Binghamton University.
