Our Mission

SUNY Sullivan provides programs and resources that educate, inspire, and empower students and the broader community. Through excellence in teaching and learning, we prepare students for a diverse and interconnected world, and we support positive economic and social change within Sullivan County and beyond. We model sustainable actions and promote socially, environmentally, and economically responsible citizenship through an overarching culture of excellence.

Our Campus

Our rural, 405-acre campus is nestled in the scenic Catskill Mountains less than two hours from New York City and Albany. It features a series of nine interconnected buildings plus the Paul Gerry Fieldhouse. Our campus buildings, including the Seelig Theatre located in the center of the complex, were designed by architectural firm Edward Durell Stone & Associates. Stone was famous for his work on the Museum of Modern Art and Radio City Music Hall in New York City, as well as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., among other public buildings and spaces. The Lazarus I. Levine Residence Hall and the EcoGreen Townhouses, both located just steps from campus, provide housing for nearly 400 students.

Sustainable Sullivan

Sustainability is at the heart of what we do at SUNY Sullivan. Our commitment to environmental and social responsibility informs everything from our campus operations to our curriculum.

We have been incorporating sustainable practices into our campus operations for many years, including a geothermal system to heat and cool our buildings and, more recently, installation of a 3 kW photovoltaic array and 2.5 kW wind turbine for hands-on renewable energy training. In 2015, SUNY Sullivan entered into a power purchase agreement with Sullivan Solar Garden, LLC which included the installation of a nine-acre, 2.15 MW (7056 PV module) solar farm on campus.

SUNY Sullivan students helped install an on-campus green roof which helped lower heating and cooling costs, and our students collect and compost over 3000 pounds of food scraps each year using an on-campus forced air compost area. We have added water bottle fill stations, low-flow plumbing and retrofitted our lighting and building automation systems to improve our energy efficiency, and installed exterior solar lighting to brighten a walking path leading to our baseball field. We have an organic community garden and built a straw bale garden shed— an initiative undertaken by our Honors Program and Green Building Maintenance and Management student. Some of the food grown in our garden is used by campus dining services, further advancing Chartwells’ many sustainability initiatives. We continually update our Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory and implement strategies for waste reduction, and are updating our purchasing policies to better reflect our commitment to sustainability.

These and other efforts help reduce our energy costs, make our facilities more efficient, and minimize our impact on the environment. However, our commitment to sustainability doesn’t end there.

SUNY Sullivan is quickly becoming a leader in sustainability education. Our Green Building Maintenance and Management associate degree and Sustainability Studies courses are laying the foundation for a new “green-collar” workforce. Our Environmental Studies program offers a science-based approach to tackling today’s complex ecological issues. We are also committed to infusing sustainability throughout our curricula starting with a freshman Metamorphosis class. The Metamorphosis course promotes a culture of excellence through individual performance and by completing a sustainability-oriented class service project. We even have non-credit workshops and courses to expand your personal or professional sustainability-related skills.
